God is at work among us!

Have you noticed – prayers answered for those undergoing surgery and treatments; Jill’s mushrooming community enterprise feeding those in need; others finding boldness and opportunity to share their faith in response to Greg’s recent stirring message and others volunteering service to the community?
God is stirring us to prayer; to compassionate action and enlarging our faith. How are you experiencing the stirring of God’s Spirit at present in your life? What is God directing your spirit, your thoughts and prayers toward? What next step might you take in response? Ring a friend and share your thoughts, praying together for God’s guidance or discernment and boldness. Be sure of this – God is frequently speaking to you. Often it is simply through a need or opportunity that presents itself to you. As we begin each day with a simple prayer of inviting God to direct our path that day trust that he is doing so and then be ready…
Eph 5: ‘Be filled with the Spirit…’ ‘…making the most of every opportunity because the days are evil.’
