Highlights from Women's Night



The other night at church we had a special night just for our Northside ladies.  It wasn't outreach oriented this time, but something different.  This was a very small and intimate "in house" gathering when the core group of our women gathered so I could share with them my heart on a few things, particularly what's happening in our church right now.  I was able to bare my soul about a few things that I've just been waiting for the proper timing to unveil.

  After having some amazingly delicious desserts, appetizers, coffee and tea (and a new banana punch recipe from Jill), we settled in for worship led by two of my very favorite young women on the planet-- Becca and Bethany, and the band (my sons Dustin & Jordan, and Stephen).   After that, I brought the message that had been burning on my heart, "Prepare to Soar" that goes along with the theme for our church right now and where we are headed in the next few months.  God showed up.  Bec and Beth introduced the song, "You'll Come" which is my favorite right now and I've listened to no less than 50-60 times in the past week!   I have it on repeat as I'm getting dressed in the morning and putting on my makeup.  "Chains be broken...lives be healed...eyes be opened...Christ is revealed."

The girls led the song again last Sunday and an insider perspective tells me they are doing it again this week....can't wait til' I'm back from Tres Dias...and I think I'll put it on the lineup myself next Sunday when I lead...I'm addicted...  

I have decided... I have resolved
To wait upon you Lord
My rock and redeemer, shield and reward...
I'll wait upon you Lord 


As surely as the sun will rise
You'll come to us
As certain as the dawn appears...

You'll come... let your glory fall
As you respond to us
Spirit reign... flood our hearts with holy fire again


We are not shaken... we are not moved
We wait upon you Lord
Mighty deliverer my triumph and truth
 We wait upon you Lord


Surely as the sun will rise, You'll come to us
Certain as Your Word endures...

Chains be broken
Lives be healed
Eyes be opened
Christ is revealed.




*I'm posting again this afternoon, so why not have an afternoon coffee break and check back?!
