Testament Tuesday

First of all I have to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY REBECCA!  Rebecca is my dearest and longest friend and today is her birthday.  Everyone should have a friend like my Bec.  Love you Rebecca and am blessed to call you friend.

So onto Testament Tuesday as we read through the book of Acts.  I think the thing that stood out to me the most was how God consistently used the persecution of the Christians to advance the spreading of the Gospel.  A couple times we saw where the believers were scattered and it was always followed by a statement about many more hearing about Christ through that.

So What does that mean for us?  Well let's think about it.  If I were a follower of Christ during those times, I would have had a very well mapped out plan as to how I was going to spread the word about Christ and it wouldn't have included persecution and running away.  I bet they weren't much different.

It makes me think of other times when I have had a plan that hasn't gone my way and reminds me that God's plans are far superior to mine.

Sorry this is short this week.  I am super tired and a little overextended.  I promise to do better next week. :)

Here are a few more vacation pics.
