God is good!

A few weeks ago I agreed to be a part of a new program at our church. We are starting a weekly “After School Jams” program for kids in the community to come and hang out after school. We are having music, snacks and activities. Now in our small town (700) and our even smaller church membership, I was thinking this was a big undertaking. As we started to plan yesterday, I started to get a little stressed out and think, “What am I doing? I can’t take on one more thing right now!” I started to think about all the kids that could potentially show up and how we would handle that. I questioned how we were going to fill the whole 1 1/2 hours and keep the kids interested, etc. etc. Doubt was filling my mind. Then, I decided I would just pray about it and “Let go, Let God”. If this is what I am supposed to be doing, then God will be there to help us. One way we were talking about keeping the kids interested in music was incorporating musical instruments. But, we knew that would be costly and we currently have no budget. So, we put that in our hopefully in the future file. Then today I got a phone call from one of our church members who is helping to organize this new program. She said she has $200 to donate to our cause in memory of her father and wanted it to be used for instruments. Would you believe the instruments cost $197 and will be able to be here by Tuesday? Our program starts Wednesday. So, after meeting again today to plan, order the instruments, and mail out invites to 25 families, I am so excited for this new venture in my life and in our church’s life. I pray that the kids in the community come and we can share how God can work in their life. God is so good! I will let you know how the first week goes!
