My Heart Is A Bucket
I purchased your My Heart is a Bucket book when I was at the School of the Prophets at Bethel this past summer. I am using it in our children's ministry time on Sunday's to help them invite God's presence and hear his voice.
I love the way your lessons prepare the children to recieve, but allow the Holy Spirit to do all of the work. What a blessing. We are an Episcopal church, so a lot of this is new to many of our parents, so it should be really exciting. I'll keep you posted.
In The Spirit
Funny story....last week in the Wed. evening worship service one of the kids was praying w/the prayer minister and the lady they were praying for fell back in the Spirit. The little girl jumped back with her hands up and said, "I didn't do it!" Isn't that cute! Soon things like that will become the norm for the kids! But, for now, it is a new thing!
I am really excited about how the Lord is putting this all together. This week we are focusing on the "King" ... on his love and character. Finishing with a time of sitting in His lap! I can't wait for the stories of what the kids hear and see!
Soaking With Papa God
Want to hear a praise? This last Monday I taught lesson one from God's Bucket of Love to a group of Sunday school teachers from various churches in our Area. During the soaking time, a couple from an evangelical church (both in leadership) joined us. Many teachers were weeping as God's presence filled the place. (We only soaked for 5 min. as this was a first for many of them!) Before the night was over, the man -- in church leadership for years -- accepted Christ as his Savior. He knew Him in his head, but he never before accepted and experienced Him in his heart!! Only God!
Thank you for equipping and providing the tools for us to bring Heaven to Earth!!
And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son
