Thankful Thursday

Linking with Cami at Thankful Thursday

"Every experience God gives us, every person He puts in our lives, is the perfect preparation for the future that only He can see." Corrie ten Boom

I love it when things come together in ways that shouts....This is right...This is part of a plan. For the past few weeks that's exactly what's been happening....meeting one person...who connects me to someone else...who opens a door....which leads to other amazing things.  This week I'm excited and grateful for.....

-I pass this church every day on the ride to and from home. One day this week, on a whim....I stopped, rang the bell and spoke to the minister. I asked if she'd consider letting me run a group there. She said a resounding yes.
-My editor, a Jewish woman, finished editing my manuscript. She said it's a great read and something that needs to get out there. Yeahhhhh.
-People have been emailing me wanting to buy the book already...It will be out hopefully in October...yeah!
-Hebron Ministry is considering paying to put my first book into a cheaper format so it can be distributed in bulk to women in prison. 
-Mostly for the plans He has for each of us...they're the best. Life  connected to Him is one amazing venture.

I totally agree with this, Nikki. There are no accidental encounters... everything in our life is part of a Divine plan and has a purpose.

Rejoicing with you for the doors God opened and all you had to do was to walk through them.

Have a wonderful day!

God does put things in place for us. I had the same thing with a bad chain of events which actually led my son back to Christ and I have cried many tears of joy over this.
