You Amaze Me

This is just the quickest shout-out to say that you nearly took my breath away in your comments to the last post. I have never been so humbled and so thankful and blessed to be part of this community. If you haven’t had a chance to glance at the ministry going on between sisters in the faith, even just letting your eyes scan down the comments and seeing the interchange between the phrases,ย  “Little Sister here…” and “Big Sister here…” will put tears in your eyes. You amaze me. We are flawed people around here and all of us have some degree of brokenness but, Sisters, God formed something real in this community over the last years – something we couldn’t have conjured up with the best of plans, talent, and organization – and His Son has never been more obvious among you than in that last post. I cannot thank you enough. You mean so much to me.

I’m keeping it short because we have our big Siesta Summer Bible study post going up first thing in the morning but I want to ask you for one more thing. I am so pleased to hear from many of you that you’re agreeing to memorize Psalm 25. By all means, older sisters, join in, too, if you could really use those words in the marrow of your bones. Read it and see. Memory work is often done best in the framework of accountability. If you want to be held accountable to memorize it, would you please make a comment to this post and let us know you’re taking on Psalm 25 and what version you’re using? (The version is completely up to you! This is just to provide you a chance to sign on the dotted line, so to speak.) Some of you could also pair up and use the same version and agree on how you’re going to approach it and what Scriptures you’re taking on each week. My little sister in the faith that God used to spur on the whole previous post – remember, the one I ran into in the grocery store? – is going to memorize the same version as me so that we would be able to say it together. It just makes it extra fun and gets it done.

I love you guys so much. Now, let’s get out there and live in victory. Jesus, be obvious in Your daughters this day. This week. This lifetime. You are all to us.

    Little sister here, though only for a few more hours. I’m observing my 40th birthday tomorrow. Despite knowing that God has a plan, I am a little freaked out to find myself here–divorced, without children, selling my house, and with only a temporary job. This was not what my life was supposed to look like. I know God’s kindness and faithfulness and mercy and grace, but I’ve been discouraged. Yet, something powerful happened when I saw sister after sister, encouraging one another with what the Lord has done.

    I’m so blessed by these posts. The Lord led me back to Psalm 46:10 this afternoon, and as I was chuckling with God that, lately, I’ve been more like “Be still and fall sleep,” I realized that, while I have my own stories of God’s faithfulness, I tend to focus instead on the discouragement and craziness of life. I needed to hear sisters share: “Come and see the works of the Lord.”

    This could not have come at a better time. Thank you, sweet sisters!

    (When I commented on your previous post to our little sisters, I imagined going back in time 30 years and telling my younger self what I have learned about the Lord through the years. It blessed me greatly as I realized how amazingly faithful our God has been, is and will be.)
