Saturday was a cool cool time, as we spent time learning more why and when Jesus spent time fasting. You then huddled up with each other and shared what and how you are going to do some things different for a season. Some of you have already started and some started this morning and will continue the fast until we celebrate the birth of our Savior. In this time of fasting and prayer (remember your combs hahaha Matthew 6 for the reminder), we are seeking what and how God will desire each of us to live out and strengthen each other in our homes, at work, and in our community.
What is your cool uniqueness that God blew into your being that can touch others in your neighborhood or at school? What and how does God desire for us to continue to reach out to our brothers and sisters throughout Rutherford County, TN, Haiti, China, to the ends of the earth and join us in the harvest.
Our next chance pour out will be this week, as we receive the final number of kids through project GO that will have a chance to shop for Christmas that normally wouldn’t. This year we are asking families to join, to literally meet other families and help create relationships that will strengthen all of us…not to fix anything, just to be buddies with each other. We currently have approximately $2500.00 to help with 45 children. Last year the number was 21 and we had $2100..Would be neat to have at least $100.00 a child to give.
so here is what I’m asking us to pray through and do differently for this people pouring out moment….will you own your street and ask others to join in helping provide? This will help you meet your neighbors if you haven’t already, this could strike up conversation with your neighbors that for various reasons have unplugged, and more importantly they will know your address is a LIGHT of CHRIST not only during CHRISTmas but every day. Take the kiddos with you and show them in the book the verses you are living out together. Trust the HIM in you to knock on a door……oh before you go take a peek..let people see that the Refuge is not a place but YOU! you are what creates the safe place.
Revelation 3:20 Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends.
Look what He is sharing and where? lets go do some knocking
love em up!
