Everything was normal about yesterday, get up, hurry up, get ready for church, and make it there just in time. The weather was great, well except for a little rain. And our pastor shared an awesome message. The message was R U Sure ~ with two questions, am I unchanged? am I unchallenged? At the end of the message he asked for anyone who needed to know Jesus and be changed and/or be challenged to come forward and talk with a pastor ~ and many did! Some of our old friends were re-visiting our church and both of their teenage children came forward to make public decisions for Jesus and to learn more about baptism. I don't think when they were getting ready for church yesterday that their morning was much different from ours, but it turned out to be a "God was there" day for them and for all of us. Another lady who came forward had met a church member the day before at her yard sale. She is new to the area and had simply been invited to come to our church and she too had a "God was there" day. There were couples and a senior lady who joined our church yesterday. Husbands, wives, teenagers and one sweet little girl who made decisions. I know "God was there" with us yesterday at Capshaw and I look forward to getting back next week to see what else he has in store for our church.
