Just like normal, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'm letting you know that I enjoyed attending Bible study and worshipping with my church family, yesterday!
However, after worshipping together, I didn't head for home. Instead, I went to our fellowship room and joined my church family for a pot-luck luncheon!
What a blessing it was.
Not just because we enjoyed a delicious meal, together. But, also because of the time we spent, together.
Afterwards, those of us who brought a gift for an exchange-type game, had a good time. Yup! I received a really nice gift card along with a sweet treat!
There's something I feel I need to say, though.
When I was leaving home, I had to take the time to load up my vehicle. I had food for the pot-luck luncheon, a gift for the exchange-type game, a fairly large box containing a gift for my pastor and his wife, plus a variety of things for our food pantry.
Our food pantry, is what we call our food bank. Yes, people come to our church, for help. And, they receive it.
It was hard enough for me to get all of this into my van. After all, I am still not very strong, physically.
On my way to church, I wondered how I would get all of these things into my church.
I prayed. And, I asked God to provide for me.
Normally, when I arrive at church for our Bible study class, not everyone has arrived at the church. So, there's not usually anyone outside, when I am.
However, yesterday was different.
A brother in the Lord, had opened the trunk of his car, for some reason. And, when I parked my van, it right next to him.
I asked if he would help me. And, he did.
I thanked this brother in the Lord, who helped me in more than just one way!
For this, I praise God.
Not just for the help. Although I did appreciate it!
I must admit, I was thankful that God had answered my prayer!
Just as we read, in John 15:7, "If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you."
He knew my limitations. He knew I needed help.
And, He provided it for me.
Why did He do this?
Obviously, He loves me. He knows I abide in Him. And, He knows His words abide in me.
Thank You, Lord!
Thank You, for saving me. Thank You, for loving me... your child. And, thank You, for showing me and others, that what you say in Your Word, the Bible, You actually do!
Until next time...
