I can do all things through Christ who strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13
A Message from the "R"
Anything is Possible with the Lord.
As I began to pray for the Holy Spirit to guide me in preparing for this weekend, I was drawn to Philippians 4:13, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" for the weekend verse by a bracelet given to me by my sister, Diane. The small silver bracelet features a small dangling cross and the inscription, “Anything is Possible”. Balancing family, work, school, children's activities, and all the demands of this world can seem so daunting. Yet this scripture reminds us that we can do all things if we believe in the Love, Hope, and the Promise of God's strength in us.
Our weekend song is Thrive by Casting Crowns. God wants us to not just survive but to Thrive; with Joy unspeakable, Faith unsinkable, Love unstoppable - Anything is Possible.
Teaming is well underway. Assignments have been made as we prepare our hearts to serve 30 women who will come to the mountain. God has chosen these women from different places in their faith journey. Some will be spiritually renewed, some will see unconditional love for the first time, and some may see Jesus in the women that serve them. All of them will truly know that Anything is Possible with the Lord.
Please pray for the team, the pilgrims, and for God's blessing upon E-178.
