Day 12 of the 12 days of Thanksgiving!!! Thankful for Best Life Ministries

Post

It’s been 14.5 months since I left my last position as Director of Worship & Creative Arts, at a local church, to go full time with our Best Life Ministries team.

 

I’ve prayed about it, written about it, cried about it, rejoiced about it, and thought about it.

Days and nights have gone by where I’ve sat down and written into the journal of my lifestory, what God has done and how He has answered prayers.

I want to give Him glory today.  So, first things first. To God~ thank you for bringing these people into my life over the past six churches I’ve worked at.  Thank you for teaching me things along the path, that I never thought I’d need, and now I do!  God, thank you for giving me the opportunity to take something awful that happened to Chandra, and make it something that brings you glory, each day of my life.  And thank you that I get to work each day on things that I love:  writing, speaking,praying, creating, and spending time with really great followers and leaders of You.  For all you’ve done over the past year (provided conferences, provided Jennifer to help create a great website,  provided Godly leaders to help me, provided money, provided a van, provided people to help create a magazine and a devotional, provided women who came to our conference who accepted Christ as Savior, as well as women who came to our conference and prayed and left  encouraged.) a simple thank you seems like it’s just not enough…but hear/see my heart…I’m so grateful to You.
