Had a great time at house church tonight. We discussed how one of Jesus’ big deals is finding/having life.

I naturally question whether this effort is “of God”, but feeling more confident week by week that God is moving in our little fellowship.

God put on my heart this passage from Ecclesiastes 11:

1 Cast your bread upon the waters,
       for after many days you will find it again.

 4 Whoever watches the wind will not plant;
       whoever looks at the clouds will not reap.

 5 As you do not know the path of the wind,
       or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb,
       so you cannot understand the work of God,
       the Maker of all things.

 6 Sow your seed in the morning,
       and at evening let not your hands be idle,
       for you do not know which will succeed,
       whether this or that,
       or whether both will do equally well.
I can’t know for certainty where God will take this effort, but as I see simple and first fruits coming from our time together, I am more confident of His leading.

It’s been a wonderful thing to share spiritual conversations with Ron and Barbara. Even though they are close family, we are only now finding regular opportunity to discuss how God is working in our life.

Dan, Diana, Everett, and Justus Wenzel have been a God-send to our group. They have a deep commitment to God and living their relationship out in their lives. Their example has encouraged me to be even more intentional about sharing God and his ways with the kids.

We resolved to invite others to join in our time together as believers. Hoping that unchurched believers will find a safe place to find God and His will in their lives. Please join us in prayer that God will lead us to the people He has prepared for this invitation.  We “cannot understand the work of God”, but if we “watch the wind”, we “will not plant”.
