We have only been going to our new Church for 3 weeks.
Already many people know us, talk to us, and are just so friendly and lovely.
We are already in a care group, I am already attending an excellent Bible study group at the Church, I have been invited to join groups, a ladies group on Monday evenings, playgroup, an upcoming trip strawberry picking and have my first new friend, who also has just started scrapbooking – how perfect is all that!
My children are happy, a new and big youth group is starting next month for my son and they are both very settled already, which is a truly amazing sign, not that I need sign, because I trust in God.
I talked with the minister’s girlfriend today, who came and sat with me for a little while. She is really lovely and within our conversation I told her how thankful I am that the minister has so much theology knowledge, as this is something I am yearning for and I’m planning to go to Bible college next year. She was genuinely interested in this, asking what I wanted to study and I said a ministry to women’s course and then possibly after that a Christian counselling course, as I have a deep interest in that and she was very encouraging, so that was really good. She even asked me if I wanted to join her and the minister at the front of the Church where they sit, but at present I feel more comfortable at the back, but it was so lovely of her to ask that.
So far, all I have seen is encouraging, humble, welcoming, happy, lovely, kind people and for that I am truly thankful.
No Church is perfect and I realise there will always be little issues, after all, we are sinful people, but so far, despite my cautious and vigilant mind, I am truly only delighted with what I see, hear and feel.
And I think I will put my name down on the cleaning roster, as they need people for that and that won’t be an anxiety issue and I am only too gladly willing, to clean God’s Church.
Thank you God, for everything you do and provide, always showing me over and over of your perfect love and grace.
