What another amazing week here at the River Church. God has been doing so many things in the lives of those that have sought Him and have been hungry for His presence. There have been many things that God has been doing in me and showing me through the course of this week. One of the biggest things that has become more and more of a reality to me this week is that what God is doing in me is not as much for me as it is for those around me and those that I encounter. This has been a topic that has been preached for a long time here at the River but it has become more and more real to me over the course of the last couple of weeks.
When God touches me He does it so that I may allow Him to flow through me to touch others. The calls that I have been taking in the call center have been amazing as I hear the joy and the release in the voice of those that God has touched. The ones that I have encountered on the streets have been so amazing that it is almost hard to put into words. Everything that God has done in me and for me is so that I may go and touch a generation of people who are desperate for a touch from Heaven. Seeing people react when they realize that God is not mad at them but rather loves them is something that I personally will never get tired of seeing. People who were hooked on alcohol, drugs, pornography, and even self despair and defeat until this one encounter with the Spirit of God and will forever have their lives altered and are now bound for an eternity with Jesus is one of the greatest miracles that we will ever have the privilege of witnessing.-Darrel G.
Or, as I call them in pregnancy, the “her-mones” and the hormones and the emotions. And then the physical changes occur. The eating binges. Some caused by the pregnancy, some excused by the pregnancy (laughter).
