Ten to go….

I’m really happy today. I have this warm fuzzy feeling deep in my heart. It’s that feel good feeling you have that no matter what happens around you or to you, you just can’t shake. It’s that feeling  you get when you know you heard God.

I’ve been smiling

(inside) all day. I missed being at #christmas1000timesbetter physically but the gist I got totally made me so much more confident that I heard God.

The truth is when I first heard #christmas1000timesbetter it was supposed to be a JUGN project. It was my give-back time but for some reason I felt in my heart that God wanted to use it as a teaching moment for DCC as a whole not just the women.

I had no clue how to go about it or where to start from but when I spoke to my sister Diche, she and her wonderful team Helping Hands our benevolence team, they came up with a plan and a cost. Then our DCC workforce got behind it and of course you wonderful blog family.

At first we were like the disciples when Jesus told them in Luke 6, you find them something to eat. We had so little and it seemed like it was nothing among so many but at the end of the day God showed up. That was the first sign that God was in it.

First he sent us miracle, our miracle worker. She single handedly did all the shopping even with a healing leg. We got everything at rock bottom price and packaging and mobilisation was a breeze. Then even without enough money Diche went ahead and bought the baskets in faith. The idea was Lord we’ve brought the baskets now you have to fill it. We had more than enough but that wasn’t the highpoint of the day for me.

The biggest miracle for me was the lesson in compassion that our DCC family got. People encountered hunger first hand. They saw tears of joy, received hugs even got a thank you card from someone who said she had never received anything at Christmas in the last twenty years.

They felt something I had been trying to teach for years…. God showed me that as pastor peter used to say to me, some things are caught and not taught.

They all left there happy to be a part of something bigger than them. I, happy that we were able to be the answer to some people’s prayers. God showed up and I’m sure people that had lost hope in him, had their faith renewed today.

I’m just glad that he thought me worthy to be a part of this great plan. I’m grateful Lord. Truly I am…
