Blessed....

"Here is what I would like for you to do" Isn't it sweet to get to a point in our life when we hear those words from our Father. I used to believe that there was no way God could use such messed up broken people. But to the contrary, it is because of my brokenness and surrender to Him that I can be used. Yesterday I got to see over 500 people in this scenario. One of the sweetest things I get to have is a front row seat to watch broken people give back in service. Pastor Rick Warren said it well when he wrote, "Nothing matters more than knowing God's purposes for your life, and nothing can compensate for not knowing." The volunteers across the world serving in CR are some of the most grateful and giving people you will ever see. What a treat to see this example yet again here in Chicago with 100 volunteers serving with the greatest joy? Who were they serving? New leaders of new CR's that will hopefully start this next year. Also existing leaders looking to keep learning and growing as leaders. Why were they serving? Because of their love and desire to glorify the Name of the King Almighty Jesus Christ. Never question the heart of a volunteer. So grateful to be blessed and then get to be a blessing to others.  What a sweet way to say thanks to our Father for what He has and is doing in and thru our life. Thank you Bill and Carolynn at Hartford church & your volunteers for shining like a bright light in Illinois! “Serve the Lord with fear, & rejoice with trembling."Psalm 2:11 Rodney Holmstrom
