Yesterday was amazing @ Grace. At the end of a sermon from John 13 on the washing of the disciples feet by our Lord, we passed out towels to all who would commit to serving one another. I’d love to hear stories of how we’re actually serving the needs of one another. Can we pass on stories without boasting or drawing attention to ourselves? Jesus was simply teaching a lesson by ‘doing’. That’s all I’m looking for. Let’s teach one another by sharing our stories of how we serve the needs around us. Any takers?

I’d like to share a story. I had an unfortunate turn of events this last week that left me in a situation where I did not have a vehicle, a place to stay or any of my things (clothes, etc). My Uncle and Aunt willingly and with smiles on their faces came and picked me up from the airport, drove me up to Flagstaff, provided me with more than everything I needed; toiletries, clothes, meals, clean sheets, and loads of encouragement. I can’t even tell you all the things they gave me and did for me.
They truly did serve my very real needs and I am so grateful for both of them.
The Grace children’s ministry had a real need of getting another pre-school teacher or they would have to cancel Grace pre-school during services. I was unaware of this when I turned in my Children’s ministry application this past Sunday. I am a 5th and 6th grade teacher so I don’t deal with little kids. However, when I turned in the application the team immediately asked me to work with pre-school. I felt God pull on my heart and urging me to accept so I did. Now the pre-school ministry does not have to cancel their classes and can go forward with a teaching rotation. Praise to God that these little guys will have the seed planted and begin to know and understand who God is and explore His great love for us! This is all works done by his hand. It all worked out according to His will, and He will be glorified through this real need!
