Today was our last day at Praise Assembly. This was our first church home away from home, our first Children's Pastor job, our first family away from family.
This journey here at Praise has been amazing. We felt like it was home from the first time we came. We were loved on and pulled in from the beginning.
Since coming on as staff we have truly been so blessed and supported and loved. It's truly unbelievable what God has given us and done in us and allowed us to give in the two years we have pastored here.
Words are so limiting in this moment.
We have truly made life long friends and have opened our hearts up completely to be used and poured out and I believe that God really was able to use us to minister, touch and love the kids, youth, and families here.
What an unbelievable confirmation that God is faithful and truly has a plan for our lives to impact His kingdom!!
I am so blessed beyond words! I am so blown away!
Blown away by the loved we received today. Blow away by the support we received today/ Blown away by the hugs, gifts, words, and true blessings from today! (Just so that I never forget: Locket from Stacy & my Girls Only class, Card from all my kids, Pictures from the Harper girls, necklace from Kiana, and many hugs and prayers and sweet words of love and encouragement from so many)
Just deeply blown away!
Jesus, my heart is so thankful and so very full. Thank you for allowing us to love your children, young and old, and for allowing us to minister. Thank you for providing for us and loving us and for giving us Your Wisdom and love to give out! Thank You Jesus mostly for changing our hearts so that we can indeed make a difference in the lives of others because we are changed from the inside out by your incredible love! I have no words that can do justice to the gratefulness of your love, forgiveness and salvation.
You, Jesus are the reason that we can love and teach and impact and minister to your people.
Lord, I ask that in this new chapter that you would be glorified in all that we do. I ask you to give us Your Wisdom and Spirit to guide us to love your children and people and to make an impact in your kingdom! We need YOU Jesus! We thank YOU Jesus! We trust YOU Jesus!
In Jesus name, Amen.
