He really does.

Friday last week: packed to leave for Inductive Bible Study Course in Switzerland
Friday night last week:
Covered my head with my blankets and cried out in fear, "God how am I going to be able to do an Intensive Inductive Bible Study in German? There is so much I don't know about this language. - How can you possibly be able to use me? This is impossible"
Throwing my feet off of the side of the bed, they hit the floor and pace. My head swims, my dog sleeps, my heart pounds. Where do I go from here?
I tick off the list of things that are pressing in:
- Travel tomorrow to an unknown place with unknown people
- Group of women from Texas come in 5 weeks to stay and mission for 2 weeks (continual preparations)
- Start new classes in German
- Get phone fixed
- Continue German tutoring
- Call the massive list of people I need to call
- Contact pastors from all the churches I am desiring to work with/confirm flyers
- Design Flyers
- Finish Everything Book
- Write/send out newsletter
- Wash car/clean house/walk dog/walk me/feed dog/feed me/breath
- time with God??????
Saturday morning - Sunday evening
I understood almost everything said and done the entire weekend.
But God knows I have a need to be encouraged. He encouraged by allowing me to dance around in an intensive Inductive Bible Study of Galations IN GERMAN.
Being reminded this as well as so many other truths:
"But before faith came, we were kept in custody under the law, being shut up to the faith which was later to be revealed. Therefore the Law has become our tutor to lead us to Christ, so that we may be justified by faith. But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor. For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to promise." Galatians 3:23-29 NASV
We live by Grace
He is our Everything
He is all I Need
I am an heir to the promise
God knows that when I am spinning out of control - allowing me to swim in His word refreshes and restores me.
And this time, I am refreshed and restored in German.
Miracles Never Cease!
He relates to me in me-shaped ways... He relates to me in written words... He relates to me.
How did He relate to you this past weekend?
How did He relate to you?
