God's Surprises

Wow...The sky was full of color. An amazing rainbow filled the sky last Saturday night.

I was dragging myself to an event I had prayed for all week with other intercessors. A few weeks ago I wrote a post on artists and musicians coming together for celebration of arts in a Christian environment.

I had had a tough week and driving 40 miles to

the reception and premier of artists'

exhibitions was a push for me. There was no way I could miss this event. We'd come up against so many obstacles because this is a "new" ministry and open to all artists, but in a church and headed by Christians. Seems the greatest opposition comes against the "new" works.

Feeling like the supreme martyr, I drove along and then suddenly I came up on the largest,

most colorful rainbow I have ever seen. I wouldn't have missed that for anything.

The showing was fabulous. Beautiful music coming from the Baby Grand; great food; wonderful fellowship and beautiful art filled the rooms; it was divine. The appreciation of creativity and the fellowship of artists and friends of the arts was amazing.

God I thank You for opening me up to new adventures with You. Please keep surprising me with Your greatness and may I never forget the colors in that rainbow.

Hi Kay,
Catching up on blogs...been on a little break. Loved reading about God's gift of that rainbow to beautiful. (Don't you just love when He does that!?) I was humbled and challenged about "the stuff" I cling to. The sweet post about your daughter really touched my heart. What a precious relationship.

Thrive In Christ

Who I Am In Christ by Neil Anderson

For several months we will center on this book to pursue Thriving in our Christian journey.

Neil challenges us with: "Do you know who you are in God's eyes? We are no longer products of our past. We are primarily products of Christ's work on the cross. Who we are determines what we do.

You are not who you are in Christ because of the things you have done, you are in Christ because of what He has done. He died and rose again so that you and I could live in the FREEDOM of His love."

That's just the introduction. More to follow.
