Every couple weeks, we ask the same question:
This could be something that happened to you, something you witnessed someone else do, or a story you saw that spoke to your heart. Examples include:
You saw a news story of Christ at work in the world.
You saw someone do something extraordinarily kind for someone else.
Someone came to help you in your time of need in an unexpected way.
You witnessed someone accept Christ as their Savior or be baptized.
Sometimes we can get so wrapped up in our own little world that we fail to look for signs of Christ working in the world around us. This often leads us to believe that Christ isn’t working. I’m hoping that by consistently posing this question, it will remind us to be looking for evidence that Christ is still at work through his people. Some weeks, we may not get any stories. Some weeks, we may get a lot of stories. But I want the opportunity to always be there for you to share stories of how Christ is at work as a way to encourage Christians to stay strong in the faith.
John 13:34-35: [Jesus said] “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
I hope you will join me in sharing your stories! If you have a story and don’t want to wait for the next post, feel free to go back and find the previous post and share your story there!

Our family has experienced in a huge way God's provision over the last several months. My husband lost his job at the end of last year and has been looking for a new job; but it has been a long, slow process. He was the sole source of income, so financially it has been challenging. However, we have seen God's faithfulness to provide for us in so many ways. We have received financial gifts from many that have been a huge blessing. There was one gift in particular that just blew us away in their generosity and the unexpected timing of the gift. There have been opportunities for mowing jobs, gifts of needed household items, a daughter who put together a lemonade stand to help raise money for buying school supplies for this year, mobile food distribution pick up sites to help with the grocery bill, gifts from family so our kids can continue their extracurricular activities for the school year...the list goes on. I have witnessed first hand the Creator providing for our family with every resource at his disposal. What a faithful God we serve!
