LAVISH LOVE: How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! (I John 3:1 NIV)

Feeling Useless?

My women’s Bible study group has been studying the book of Philippians. Wow, what an encouraging book! Just two of the verses could keep me going for months:

– “I am sure that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on that day when Christ Jesus comes back again.” (Phil. 1:6 NLT)

– “For God is working in you, giving you the desire to obey him and the power to do what pleases him.” (Phil. 2:13 NLT)

As one woman in the group said, “God is always at work. We can get on his train, even when we don’t know where it’s going or how it’s going to get there.”

How exciting to think our Lord not only journeys with us, he’s the engine, the fuel, the grease, the engineer, the conductor, the travel agent, the tour guide, the passenger car, the caboose, the scenery–and the train tracks.

Bon voyage! Becky
