HE IS ALWAYS WORKING
I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:14
While I was home visiting family one weekend, my sister bought tickets for my mom and me to join her for the Delight Ministries Tour that Friday evening. Delight Ministries is a Christ-centered community for college women. I had already been familiar with this ministry after purchasing their book, For the Girl, but I was unsure about this tour as their ministry revolves around singleness. I am currently in a very happy relationship, so I wondered how I could find a blessing in the evening. As the worship service began, it was nice, but there was nothing that spoke to me. Then the speaker ended her talk and shared how she did not want anyone to leave without feeling the presence of God. I doubted that this would happen for me until I heard those first few notes of the song “Waymaker” by Sinach, which was popularized in 2019 through various covers. This had been my song for the last four months! Every time I hear it, I gain a blessing. I immediately rose to my feet, not caring about those around me and the tears began to flow as I felt God pouring out his blessings. As the song continued, I could not contain myself. Hands raised, I worshiped, but I still wondered what God was telling me, until the guided prayer. As I knelt to my knees, I came face-to-face with God. I cried to Him about my issues with body image and the struggles I have to love what I see in the mirror. I waited to hear His voice, but it did not come. Then as we began to sing “Good Good Father,” we sang the line that says, “You are perfect in all of your ways, and I’m loved by You.” I felt God wrapping His big loving arms around me and telling me, “Abby, I love you and I think YOU ARE PERFECT!” I went into that evening expecting no blessing, but came out feeling more loved and filled than I could have ever imagined. God can work in our lives when we least expect it, and I actually think He really enjoys when He can catch us off guard. I encourage you to open your heart to Him and look for ways that He can speak to you throughout the days and weeks ahead.
