“Come and listen…and I will tell you what HE did for me.” Psalm 66:16
I love a party. I love to laugh. I love to make others laugh. I love to entertain. I absolutely love to cook for my family and friends. (The cleaning before and afterwards …. not so much!) I love that parties are usually wrapped around celebrating someone or something. Yep, this party is all about celebrating Jesus and what He has done for you and for me!! So thankful that YOU stopped by so feel free to take those heels off and stay awhile.
This whole blog party thing is new for me. It all started out with just wanting to become a better small group leader for the small group that I lead through my church, Restore Community Church. But am so thankful that God has a bigger and better plan for me as He shares in Isaiah 55: 8-9, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
God’s plans for me just happened to include Proverbs 31 Ministries and Melissa Taylor’s Online Bible Studies of A Confident Heart by Renee Swope. And what a party and ride it’s been … complete with a bouncy ride and a roller coaster. And I so fell in love with my new online party animals. These girls know how to throw a good Jesus party. They love Jesus and others like crazy BIG!
And the party that started out with me sitting on the sidelines and then being invited to the party rooms of all party rooms. And that party room just keeps gets bigger and bigger. And yep, party horns were included in the form of Melissa Ross Taylor and Stephanie Clayton. And when they squeak their party horns …. YOU listen!! Their squeaks for me have always included challenges – BIG and FEARFUL next steps in my faith and leadership – but always, always spoken in love and I absolutely love that about them!
Not only were party horns included, but God also threw in some confetti in the form of guest blogging opportunities from Melissa, Wendy Blight and Renee Swope. And those sprinklings of confetti have led to this party blog.
So I say let’s get this party started and raise the roof for Jesus!!!
