God Heard my Prayers!!
Before I tell you what happened, I want to thank a special friend of mine that has a blog and has inspired me a whole lot. Her Name is Lanette Weatherspoon, and she gave me so much inspiration when I met het on here, she was talking about how she has a group of ladies at her church that get together once a month and they make cards. I said to myself how awesome is that , she has a place that she can get togetther with others and do what she does. And how great that her church loves the fellowship that it brings. At the time that I met her, I belonged to another church and I had pitched this idea to them before, but to no avail, they did not receive it, so I put it out of my mind that I could reach out to my women at the church I belonged to then. But I still prayed for God to give me an avenue to reach his people through what I had a passion for. And thus we come to today, recently I rejoined my previous church that I belonged to in 2004, New Hope Baptist Church, and that is where some of my in-laws go, so I know alot of people there. So last Sunday, my mother-in-law says to me that I needed to talk to the lady incharge of the womens ministry to see if I could start a scrapbooking night. I was very hesitant to do that, but I stepped out of faith and I asked her if I could set up an appointment with her to show some of my work. She said sure, so I set up the appointment for today, She then told me that I would be meeting with the Director of Operations, who makes all of the decisions about what can be apporved and what can't. So I took some of my work and she loved IT right from the start. The first thing she said was, "let's start as soon as possible", she then told me that she is going to have me come in on the nights the women meet to set up when we would meet monthly. I said ok, and then she also said she wants me to start one for the children's ministry. Now as of that point, I was so overwhelmed, I didn't know what to do. All I could say was look at God work. She was so excited that she called my pastor in the room and told him and he even got excited too.I left there today feeling so good about where God is taking my ministry.I'll keep you updated. Just pray that God continues to use me for his Glory.
