The Ultimate Net-worker

But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. (2 Co 4:7-9). I would like to add – stretched, but not broken – to these verses. God has been challenging me for the last several months that part of my new assignment will be to help write music for the church in Portugal. That task appeared to be more than a stretch for me; it felt completely beyond me. And I told God so. And I told Him I couldn’t do this alone. But I told him I would try. And I began learning from a  book how to write songs that would be worthy of God.  And He sent me to Portugal and introduced me to a Worship Pastor who offered to mentor me and has a heart for seeing worship music written for specific people groups; and he allowed me to meet a young Portuguese couple who are headed into ministry training who have the same heart and passion I do. And I sat in my room at the conference and cried… because God is GOOD.

  1. Wow, that’s amazing, Mara. I’m so glad for you- so neat to read how God works all of these things out when we allow Him to work! 🙂

  2. Mara,
    My eyes are filled with tears as I read your blog. I would feel so inadequate. But isn’t that the neatest thing, that HE who calls us also EQUIPS us?!!?!?!?!?!!! I will never get over that!!! Thank-you for sharing. ~K~
