So… where do I start? I know! Let’s start with God…
God, thank You so much for what you did tonight. It was a breath of fresh air for me and a great time for everyone else. You came through in ways that not many will see and breathed life into our fellowship in a way that only You can. You are good.
So… first they came. We met at a grocery store across the street from my apartment building. We waited for a while so that we had everyone together and then started walking down to my place. There were two guys that didn’t show; regardless, we had a packed house. We barely all fit in my small kitchen while I was getting the hot water ready for tea and coffee.
After getting to know each other a little, we sat in my living room and played some ice breakers and then charades. That was a lot of fun. After that, we sang a few worship songs and then got into the message. It was about how God offers us the best thing, while satan offers us a counterfeit “good” thing.
After the message, we had an awesome time praying for each other. It was really cool. I was touched.
It’s funny how you see things differently when you’re getting ready for something like this. While I was cleaning my apartment before FNL, I was thinking about that. Before today, my apartment was just the place where I eat, sleep, and get ready to do stuff elsewhere. Today, it’s like God made the place alive and gave it purpose, meaning… haha. The sheep came and were fed here… that’s such a crazy thought.
Thanks, God, for letting me be a small part of that.
Here’s another pic of us trying to look a little crazy…
