Last Thursday

So its been a week since the whole She Speaks experience started.  I have unpacked the suitcases...but my heart is still so full I am not sure I will ever be able to put into words what He has done in me, and for me...I just hope and pray it comes out through me!

Last Thursday morning my boys and the Engineer got up super duper early and took my little self to the airport...and just maybe they had to practice grace when I forgot something at home and the Engineer had to turn the car back to home to go get it.

So up in the air I go...and it was in the middle of the super busy Seattle airport that God started my heart journey with Him for this specific trip.  He and I found ourselves together in Luke 13.  Now that chapter has some great stuff...but one verse that truly loved on my heart in such a girlie way and helped set the stage for a most amazing weekend...

Then He put His hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God. Luke 13:13 (emphasis mine)

You see my Jesus had to take my red shoe wearing self over 2000 miles to truly get ahold of my heart.  To pause me to listen, and to remind, repair and renew some stuff!

He has most definitely put His hands on me!

Thursday night in an answer to prayer and a wish, hope and dream that I held tightly to in my heart...I got the honor and privilege of hugging Miss Cindy in person.  She is one of the most beautiful and Jesus shining girls I know.  In the moment of hugging her neck standing outside the Charlotte airport, I felt our Jesus laying His hands on us and in that moment love was felt, hope was experienced and praises lifted. 

I would have traveled over 2000 miles just for that moment with Cindy...but God have even MORE for me.

I will be back to show how over the course of a weekend His hands were on me!

May you know today in this very moment He thinks of you and love you immensely.

Have a great day, on purpose!

I can feel His arms on you, my dear friend! I love the Jesus, that pours out of you! Keep sharing His love, Nichole.

Today, what God opened up to me-in a new and living way, was, once again to love: yes, sweet girlfriends, we are called to love all of those around us without any conditions attached.

Seeking Him to do this today! Lori

On Purpose said...

Lori because of your commitment to pray for me and my family we are positioned to sense and feel Him, thank you sweet and precious friend. You already have loved on me for the day...but keep going...go spread Jesus around! Hugs to you and prayers up to Him!

"He put His hands on her..."

I love that. That is and always will be one of the dearest things to me about the Lord. HE put His hands on ME! Me, the unlovely one. Me, one covered in great guilt and shame and the dirt of my sins. His perfect, holy, beautiful, without spot hands touched me...unafraid of all that covered me.

I. Love. Him. :)

I love you, too. And I am so glad He tenderly met sweet longings of your heart through this trip. He is so, so good.
:) K
