Well, you might have thought that I’d forgotten about this giveaway, as I was going to let it run through the 4th of July like the Surrendering the Secret blog. However, there’s a possibility that I might be traveling that week and wanted to get this done before I really DID forget about it!
So, the winner of the Surrendering the Secret: Healing the Heartbreak of Abortion Bible Study/DVD kit is…
A Simple Country Girl!!
Congratulations! Join me in praying for those in her area whose lives will be touched with a new freedom through this study. Thanks for entering, and don’t forget to check in on the STS blog on the 4th, or on the Facebook group to see if you’ve won there – there’s another study kit up for grabs!
"Cast down, O Lord, all the forces of cruelty and wrong. Defeat all selfish and worldly-minded schemes, and PROSPER ALL THAT IS CONCEIVED AMONG US IN THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST and carried out to the honour of His blessed name."
We serve an awesomely amazing God whose timing is perfect. The above quote is part of the prayer I read this morning in a little prayer book entitled, "A Diary of Private Prayer" by John Baillie.
I was also led to read Psalm 24 this morning. A psalm of David with a theme that recognizes everything belongs to God. It is about opening the gates and letting the glory in! Perhaps those "gates" include the ones we have built around our hearts too…
In order to conceive something (an idea, thought, plan, a Truth) in and of the Spirit of God, Christ first needs to be let in. No, He needs to be invited in with a strong, determined heart. Once there, amazing things happen!
Thank you dear sister in Christ, for holding my hand along this journey, the same journey I share with so many other sisters.
When freedom is the destination and God is the tour guide, our load is lifted and our steps are placed on only paths lined with love. And forgiveness is the sweet, sweet aroma we smell along the way.
