For you who received the Wood Chip (request these above – Join the Prayer Network), here is more on my neighbor. We see each other often. A few days ago we got a nice layer of fresh snow. So both of us were shoveling it out of our driveways and sidewalks. We started talking and he suggested we make a snowman. Yea, two “grown” men making a snowman. I forgot to get a picture, but it ended up being about six feet tall and looked more like a monument (bad one) of some kind. Well, it gave us a chance to just chat and conversation moved to faith. Yesterday we decided to take a walk around our neighborhood. I ended up sharing with him about my skiing accident my senior year of high school. He was shocked at how much “I” had overcome and was told by doctors that wouldn’t be possible and yet I do them still today. It was so wonderful how he interjected that my faith must have had something to do with my recovery. The truth is that God had done the overcoming and even now, nearly 30 years later, God is still getting the glory as I share the story. Please pray for my neighbor as I can see God working in him.
Love relationship with God – the current shavings of my heart. As I have been asking God what His church is to be, the Inter-National Church of Wroclaw, He keeps leading me to the key being loving Him. I was prayer walking last week and asking Him how He wanted to reach the tens of thousands of people in the apartments, and I sensed Him saying by them seeing His love in His children. My next question was – how exactly? I believe He confirmed once again His answer of a daily personal relationship with Him. Not a “religious” quiet time, but a daily time with Abba out of a broken heart seeking Him. I encourage – yea challenge – you to die to yourself every day so that He can lead you to seek Himself with all of His power working in you. He expects His children to move from knowing we need Him every moment of every day, to living it according to His will. But I am maybe the only one that needed to hear this message and all of you have a relationship with God that is so dynamic that others see Jesus when they see you.
I must stop for now, but will continue to share my heart and journey even if it is only for me to hear.
