Upon my new trip to the UK 2 weeks ago, I connected with a lady named Chris Kelly who leads a group called CFF (Christian Friends Fellowship) in Kent. CFF is an organization out of Glasgow, Scotland that sets up singles ministries/groups around the UK, Scotland and Ireland, focused on Christian single adults to find fellowship, connecting them to God, church, Bible studies..basically, a singles network. I have spent the weekend teaching, training, encouraging and being encouraged.
When I travel, I often stay with host families to help offset the cost. My host family here has been a lovely married woman named Margaret McCooey (and her husband Andrew and grown daughter Christabel). Margaret would share something with me the blew me away. Something that would remind me of God's power, of his fire, with the tiniest of sparks and the tiniest of flames.
While Margaret was visiting her father earlier this year in Scotland, God woke her up in the middle of the night. She turned on your television to Revelation TV and saw me speaking about singles ministry including the struggles and frustrations of singles adults, lack of leadership, churches giving up on them, etc. She said she got so excited because she had been a counselor to single adults, specifically women in broken relationships. She agreed with the things I was saying. She said she got so excited and just started writing note after note. She then contacted her single friend Chris Kelly, telling her that she had to contact me. Chris would contact me only to find out that I had a new trip planned for the UK. And well, the rest is history passed and future history to come.
Q: What in your life do you need to trust him about?
Q: What has God shown you already of his power?
Q: What is your next step?
God is into details, into the smallest of seeds. When you share your faith, when you pray, when you encourage you never know who is watching, who is hearing you, who is receiving it. You may also be apart of a miracle of a married woman, in Scotland who just happened to watch you on TV in the middle of night. God can and does anything. Allow God to start your spark.
Psalm 77: 14 You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.
