The House Party

After a week of rain, we had sun yesterday, God sent it so He could have His party at our ministry house downtown. It was a lot of fun.  Many children with their parents came. We had a lot of friends come to help and to support us too. It was an answer to pray  and a blessing in our lives.
For me, it was another confirmation that I am doing exactly what God wants me to do. And,  again, more confirmation that God does exactly what He says He is going to do. He planned this House Party far more than I did. I had been feeling unorganized and uncertain the week before about the party. I didn't have any idea how many would show up, so I prayed and God said there would be 50-60, sure enough, we had about 60 people show up! When I was shopping for hot dogs and all the stuff we needed I just kept praying because I really had no clue what I was doing. I grabbed one big package of hot dogs and then had the thought later that I should get another.  That would make 80 hot dogs and I actually had a conversation with God about purchasing so many hot dogs! We served every one of them!
For me,  my steps towards God sometimes seem shakey, but as I look back I am always so thrilled and amazed at how He is working in my life and the lives of others. LOOK, at what He is doing! I mean, He is planning parties in the community, He is thinking about hot dogs, and decorations. He takes the time to send people to barbecues and make connections.  It was fun, and my faith increased because of it.
He provided others to help me which was a huge thing for me too, because I really needed help. This also increased my faith, and He provided money. So, The House Party was the surrendered party, and it was good. Now, God and I are talking about what's next. He is working, moving, breathing, and living in that little ministry house, and I am pleased that He has asked me to be a part of it.
Say That Again, Jesus, You came eating and drinking, and so the party is on!
