{PrAyInG GoD's wOrD}

Hello to all in blog world! I have been M.I.A as of late- huh?!! Not really, just very busy doing some fine tuning for ministry and getting my wits about me in my personal life. (I've pretty much given up on that ever happening though! HA! Just kidding...not really!)

Ok....so quick post. I need to get my hind end together and get the pics for the studio up here. I know, I know...I said it was gonna be this time, but alas, it's not. : ( I WILL do it shortly and WOW you all with how cute it is! If I do say so myself. : )

So, Living Proof Ministries , i.e. Beth Moore is quite possible one of the most awe inspiring ministries out there and has had direct impact on my life. I mentioned that I was in touch with them about getting the Praying God's Word Day by Day book to be donated in a large quantity, that I may place a copy in every box! (How cool would that be?!!!!) The ladies I dealt with were so gentle and thoughtful and certainly did all that they could do. Because of Beth's immense popularity, and I assume also the recent craze over this particular book, she was able to donate a few, but a great deal less then I was hoping for. Their ministry gets so many requests and they are unable to fill all of them, understandably. I would be lieing if I didn't say how very bummed I was about that. This book is really the meat of the box. God's word...sharper then any two edged sword, and totally God's love letter to each of these precious ladies. However, all is not lost! With my EIN number I will be able to go directly to the publisher and get a "ministry discount" on a large order. (Large being 75 plus books!) I figured the total to come to something like $700. A lot, yes, but well worth it! Now I have been praying about what to do. Just knee jerk reaction and buy them out right now?! The ministry account has that, and it could totally be covered. OR...step out in faith and believe that God is going to move in the heart/hearts of people to give for such a worthy cause! I am putting it out there to have others join me in praying for such favor. If the money were raised exclusively for the books, then the ministry account balance could continue to be used directly toward the supplies to make the boxes and the ever increasing gifts that go inside. Anyway you look at it, The Greatest Blessing will be blessed. If only half that amount were donated there is always the ministry account to fall back on and then the sting won't be as strong!

Prayer works, and I hope that my life and this ministry will be clear evidence to that! How thrilling it will be to offer, straight from the Father to these, possibly unsaved people.

On a lighter note, be on the look out for some updating on the blog. FINALLY! I know. I have been struggling to keep all the balls in the air in a smooth and seamless manner. (I am so not a juggler!) I am really new at ALL OF THIS! Bear with me, please.

I am always grateful to share the latest happenings with this ministry. It is indeed the way I can love my Macsen here on earth, and by giving my life away to others, I love my King! The One and only!My heart is so blessed and grateful for your prayers and encouraging words! You have no idea how much I am it edifies my spirit by those that take the time to email or leave a message. My home is not experiencing ultimate deliverance yet! It will, I believe...we serve a God that should very appropriately be called, The Extravagant One!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He loves us so much....it is the only truth that keeps me going! Press on dear ones....

Dearest Megan, so good to hear from you and that you are being renewed and encouraged. I have not read anything by Beth Moore, so maybe I need to get this prayer book and then I would love to help you with your vision. I have recently returned to working fulltime. And altho' this would not have been my heart's desire, neither was losing Renner so quickly to heaven, I feel blessed to know that God is in control and accomplishing HIS purposes in our lives. We are hoping to pay off some bills and then in April, my husband will be quitting his job and going to school full time in the fall to become a teacher. I am resting in God and His faithfulness. God's grace and His loving kindness have been carrying me. We went from one income to now two and still there is never enough money. . .isn't that how the devil works. I would love to contribute, tho' I think that you could somehow but a button on the blog for purchase of the books. . .just an idea. Let me know. As the holidays approach, I really want to be aware of our eternal purposes and give gifts to that end. We are so blessed and really don't need anything. Please continue to keep me in your prayers and I will do likewise. I have recently learned of a christian woman in my area who is pregnant with a baby that will not survive outside of the womb because it doesn't have a brain. I was asked if I would like to be available to her and I said that I would. I am a little nervous but know that it was for such a time at this that God had me trudging this painful road as well and I ask also for your prayer and encouragement for her and this situation. I believe that she wanted to carry her child to full term. It is her first. There is no good way to try to alleviate such pain but just to BE present and available. I pray that God will use me in whatever way He chooses. Anyway, I do love and miss you. I haven't been much for writing/blogging myself. What can you say. . .your sister in christ and in this fight for joy and missing our sweet dear little sons. I know that they have found each other in heaven and are brother in Christ like He has blessed us with each other. Ruth
