in this moment

The wind is blowing a million miles an hour today. I hate wind. Especially when it's only 17* to start with. Bluck.

We had a great service last night. What a great group that meets on Monday nights for worship and prayer and sometimes ministry from various men and women of God around the area. So many young people came. Very cool. We took one of our co-laborers with us, a mighty interceeding Gramma. She was sent here, by God, for us. Just ask her.

Also showing up was a good friend, who just spent a year at Hillsong Church in their leadership school. Yeah, I hated him for a while. But you get over it. :) He is preaching at our church this Sunday. I'm way excited to see how God has 'grown him up' over the past year. I'm a little like a mamma hen. I get totally stoked {and usually weepy} when I see people {especially younger ones} getting their world's rocked by the power of God. Like I said, I'm excited to see what kind of things God has developed in this guy's life.

I've had an emotionally rough last few days. No particular reason really. Besides the same ol' same ol'. We so need a breakthrough and some days there just seems to be no hope. I'm the first to cheer another on in their quest for God's destiny. I know all the right things to say. Heard all the inspiring messages. But some days, you just can't get through your fleshly head what you know is right. Blah.

My Beloved preached a message last night that I've heard 3 or 4 times. But I so needed to hear it again. In the moment. God's Word is powerful truth that comes alive in my time of need. He overwhelms me with His goodness. Both God and My Beloved. :)

Mitch just took the kids to school. We had told the teachers that we would have a late night so they would be in school a tad late. God has granted much favor between us and our school. Awesome.

We leave to head waaaay west tomorrow night. I have much to do between now and then. But this morning my stomach is not in a good way, and I'm having a hard time convincing myself to stand up. Jesus help me.

So that's my life. In this moment.
