Words of Ephesians Comes to Life
Through all of the unexpected twists and turns, there was one central theme that God started to show me early on in the summer as I read Ephesians (specifically 3: 16-20)
Verse 20: “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations.”
This was a reminder to me to keep God out of the small box that I sometimes try to put Him in; to what He could provide “realistically”. The truth is that He’s able to do immeasurably more! There was one week where about three of our key ministry sites either closed due to lack of supplies or because of new staff. That same day, two new sites contacted our office to start bringing volunteer groups. In a small little situation like that, God answered ... and bigger and quicker than I would have ever expected!
