Day 7- 5 Loaves and 2 Fish

Do you ever wish you could be in two places at once?  As I spent another day at home with Jackson and his upset tummy, its amazing to me that somehow I was still able to somehow serve in a small way at Bible study without actually being there.

The beautiful new Gathering Place at our church…part of the Grace Beyond building project…has a Mac worship program called ProPresenter.  From home I am able to create a presentation and upload a media file to a playlist along with the lyrics so that the women can sing and see the words on the screen.  Thanks to our fabulous tech team running the audio/visual and another leader graciously willing to lead the song…voila!  And even though I missed the teaching from our lesson this week, I will be able to listen to the recording online!  Bonus!

While these tools of technology can be challenging, God uses them…and learning how they work…for our good.  God has very clearly shown me time and time again that part of my purpose is not only to worship Him, but to help facilitate others to worship Him as well using the gifts and abilities He has given me.  Today that physically meant being with Jackson…all the while keeping my dear sisters at Bible study in my thoughts and prayers.   I am so thankful that time and space never limit our awesome God.  Just like with our building project, he takes our small and seemingly insignificant offerings and multiplies them to be immeasurably more than we could ever ask or imagine for His kingdom.

“Bring them here to me,” he said.   And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people.  They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over.  The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.  Matthew 14:18-21
