His best in 2010....

Well, today is the last day of 2009. Wow. It's crazy how quickly a year can pass you by. I'm finding as I get older the years seem to slip by faster and faster. This year was filled with sweet memories that I will cherish forever, and hard times too that only molded and shaped me more into the woman Christ wants me to be. Refinement is hard but is something I will always be thankful for. I am very excited about 2010 and the things that will be waiting for me this year. Who knows what The Lord has in store but isn't that what makes it exciting? And better yet to know & trust that He has His best waiting for us in 2010. Not what I think is best, not His second best, but His VERY best. I was reminded of this sweet promise this morning during my quiet time. That His best may not look like my best but it is going to be something even better. Something that will blow my mind and I will be oh so thankful for. As I sat before Him this morning I was reminded that He has never failed me yet & sometimes it takes letting go of what I think is best to only wait on His very best. 2009 will be a year that I hold very close to my heart for I feel as though I've learnt and grown the most this year. However, as I leave 2009 behind I simply can't wait for The Lord to unfold what His best is for me in 2010.

Kids Crazy Christmas Show!

Kids Crazy Christmas Show has come and gone! We participated in the pre-show and were the GiGL Band...kind of looked like the doodle bops. I literally had a little girl come up to me after one of the shows and tell me she watches me on TV every day! Ha! I had so much fun spending time, hanging out, & loving on the students in the pictures below! They were amazing and so much fun to be with! The Lord also taught me some tough lessons about myself during the show that I am working on and changing. I am so blessed to get to do what I do every day....what a fun way to get to tell people about the birth of our precious Savior. I have heard so many fun stories about how The Lord has used KCCS this season in the lives of the people who came. I am so humbled that He gives me the opportunity to get to show others His love with the gifts He has blessed me with on a daily basis.

His Sweet Grace...

Yesterday I got to attend the 11:11 service at our Woodway campus because there was no GiGL. Let me just share with you how blessed I was through the time of prayer and praise we had. You know my sweet Jesus must have just known that was so needed in my life. Being in ministry I don't get to attend a service that often and yesterday was just what I had needed. You see I've really been wrestling with The Lord lately and we all know that can be really, really tiring. I don't think I realized just how tired I was until I sat down in our worship center yesterday & came to the conclusion that I am utterly exhausted. Don't get me wrong I have been spending time with Him, praying, seeking His face I have just been frustrated with where He has me right now in life. Why? because it's not where I want to be...I'm just being real. There is that sentence again...where "I" want to be. I'm going to be completely honest the month of December has been a tough one for me.

Yesterday as I started to pray & get still He reminded me of something I so desperately needed. The sweet promise that He gives us. He doesn't promise us a life that is free of hurt, pain, sickness, or anything else but He does promise to give us His grace to walk us through those times. His sweet grace. Isn't that what keeps us running back into His arms, what keeps us leaning on Him, what leads us back to the cross every single time. What a sweet promise...His grace is sufficient to meet all of our needs. Not some of them... but all of them. And that precious promise alone is enough for me to rest in and get me through the day.

Baby Hank Update...

Hank had his heart surgery yesterday and everything went smoothly in the morning. He was in the Operating room between 6-8 hours and the Doctors fixed the problem with his heart! Praise The Lord!! Some of us were at dinner last night when my friend Trista received a text message from Samantha that said Hank is bleeding out please pray. Of course we jumped in the car and drove her down to Memorial Herman to be with Samantha and Derek to wait to hear some news about sweet Hank. About 20 min. later the nurse came out and told them that they found the bleeding and stopped the problem...Praise The Lord! The next 72 hours are critical for Hank so please continue to be on your knees for this family and this precious baby! You can keep up with them at the family blog...

Please Pray!

My friend Samantha gave birth to her first baby boy Hank last night after undergoing a c-section. Hank appeared to be born a healthy baby boy but had some fluid in his lungs so they took him to the NICU just to be safe. Well during the night he was having trouble breathing so a team of Doctors from Memorial Herman downtown rushed to the Woodlands branch to see Hank. This is what they discovered....there is something in our hearts that make a figure 8 that must connect...his does not causing the blood to not flow correctly and difficulty breathing. He has been life flighted to Memorial Herman Downtown where they will perform surgery. Today at 11:00 they will tear a hole in his heart until he is strong enough to perform the actual heart surgery in 4-5 days.

Please lift this precious baby boy and his parents Samantha and Derek up to The Lord right now as they are going through this time. Pray that The Lord will guide the hands and give the Doctors wisdom in how to handle sweet little Hanks heart. Also that The Lord would give Samantha & Derek the peace & comfort that only He can provide during this time.

Thanks for praying!
