Last night at Second Wednesday Worship our focus was on what God has done. We spent the night in worship of God specifcially focused on the testimony of God. We thanked Him for all He has done, is doing, and that which He plans to do in and through our lives.

Throughout the room we had different stations in which students were invited to go and list on paper what God has done and what He is doing in different areas of their life. They then spent time in prayer thanking Him for these things before they moved on to the next station. What a blessing to read all that God has done and is doing. Here is some of what was recorded.

•Growth in numbers and spiritual growth
•Revealing gifts to everyone and the obedience for people to use them
•Giving our body passion to serve Him and love
•He has grown our hearts for His mission - to reach the world
•Matured our hearts and brought people closer to You

•Making people stop doing things that are against His will
•Growing people in knowledge and relationship with Him
•I see and meet more and more people who are Christians and loving God who aren't afraid to share the truth with friends

•Better attitude at work, able to talk to those around me about God
•Stay connected to Him during work (when I think I am in control)

•He has made Himself known in each one of us. I pray He continues to grow in each of us more and more each day.
•My family has been able to more openly talk to each other about their faith.
•He has brought us through multiple deaths, different moves, illnesses, accidents, and He has been faithful in all. He is good.
•He has provided for all our needs, even in my doubt.
•Helped us make decisions and we grow closer to the Lord together even if we are apart.

Personal Life/Friends Lives
•Family stop doing harsh things to themselves and cutting their life shorter.
•Friends stop hurting themselves
•He's giving me boldness to share about Him with others.
•Showing me friendships that pull me to God and that I can "pull" to God
•Showing me friends who I can openly talk to about my faith and help me grow stronger with them in the Lord.

It is the very work of God, the story of God in our lives, that demonstrates the fact that His love endures forever. The words of Psalm 136:1-4 (as well as the rest of 136) are beautiful reminders of that.

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good.
His love endures forever.

Give thanks to the God of gods.
His love endures forever.

Give thanks to the Lord of lords:
His love endures forever.

to him who alone does great wonders,
His love endures forever.

May we continue to allow the story of our lives to proclaim loudly God's enduring love for this world.
