A little shout of praise

Okay - I just have to give a shout of praise to God. Every Tuesday night I do a bible study with several women from various churches at a campground about 15 miles from our house. Love these women! Can't wait for Tuesday to come every week. We have been meeting for over a year now. That is a praise all by itself. So "Praise you Jesus!"

But the real praise . . . my husband meets in our home for a bible study every other Tuesday night with a group of men. They haven't been able to meet for a few weeks and tonight was the first time they have met since we moved. As I pulled into our driveway tonight, I could see all kinds of trucks (and cars) parked all over. OH HALLELUJAH!!! What a thrill to know that these men meet in our home and that they come seeking fellowship with other godly men. Want to know what is even cooler than that? More than one has been set free from alcoholism, one is a new believer, one is free from drug addictions, more than one free from pornography addictions, more than one celebrating a restored marriage and so much more. All to the Glory of God! All of them seeking to live out a life worthy of the calling that God has placed on each one of them. What a picture of the body of Christ and they are sitting in my living room as I type this.

If you would have told me several years ago that my husband would be a believer and would be leading bible studies, I would have said you were insane. But oh how good, mighty and gracious our God is. He had a plan for my husband's life and for each one of those men.

So God - thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! And praise to the name of the Most High. Praises, praises and more praises. I would shout it out loud if I thought I wouldn't scare those men half to death! Love you Lord,

Humbly His,
