Tonight is my talk at the Sheakleyville Nazarene Church (women's meeting...all women are invited - 6:30pm.) I'll be sharing the story of my life.

One really cool thing is that at various times in my life, the Lord just drops a scripture into my lap - one which always pertains to my situation and speaks directly to my heart. I'll open up His Word at some random spot and bam...there it is...speaking directly to me.

Recently, while praying about tonight's meeting, and feeling a little nervous (don't know why...never been nervous before when I've shared my story...but at any rate...) I have been having some problems with my MS lately - one of which is clarity of speech. I lose words in the middle of a sentence and at times have trouble finishing my thoughts. Cognitive issues. I'm hating it. So...I was praying specifically that the Lord would allow me to speak to this group of women with flawless speech - that the words would not get lost in my head somewhere, but that I would be able to bring His Word without faltering. Also, I've been battling a sinus infection and would very much like to sing at least one song tonight. So I prayed about that as well. After I finished praying, I opened my computer and went to Pat's blog where I read this verse:

I am the Lord your God,
who brought you up out of Egypt.
Open wide your mouth
and I will fill it.
-Psalm 81:10

God is good! I'm trusting that He will fill my mouth and what comes forth will be to His glory!

If you're close by and can come tonight, I'd love to see you there. If you're far away, I covet your prayers!!

How did it go? I know the Lord moved mightily, even if you didn't feel up to par. And I'm sure seeds were planted by you and taken home with individuals for the Lord to water and produce fruit in his timing.

Deb...I would have loved to have been there! And what a perfect Scripture the Lord gave to you! He is faithful and I know you touched many lives with your story...the power of God's Redemption!

This one of my most favorite Scriptures! I remember Beth Moore teaching on it in one of her Bible Studies! All we have to do is ask and God is right there already making a way!

Dear Deb,
I presume everything went after God's plan.
I too have experienced, not often, but a few times in need, that a special word was given me.
My very good friend, Turid says that God will meet us in whatever way we are able and willing to accept.
In my mind He's the Almighty, and He's welcome,- always.
