Dancing in Delight
The third Sunday of every month Nairobi Chapel hosts their "BnZ" meeting. BnZ (Buttons and Zippers) is a place for ladies, young and old to share together in a lovely meal, learning from God's Word, a time of fellowship and education around selected topic.
November 13, marked the last meeting of the year, and as such, there was a focus around thankfulness. Each one wrote and shared what the Lord had done this year. What encouragement there was in hearing testimony after testimony of the Lord's faithfulness.
People have received jobs, scholarships, healing, awards, grace, mercy, peace... just to name a few. As the end of the year draws near, it's vital that we reflect on the goodness of God. Throughout the Psalms (77:11, 89:1, 105:5, etc.) we are told to remember the works of the Lord, to declare them through all generations.
What is it that the Lord has done for you this year? What of His faithfulness do you need to remember and pass on to others? In the sharing of testimonies there is great power, it is the building up of one another's faith, and your own as you recall the goodness of your God.
After our time of sharing, we danced! and Oh' how we danced. I have no questions that the Heavens also rejoiced as we each expressed from our hearts the joy of knowing the Lord. Each one in their own way, joyfully expressing thanks to a God who is forever good, forever faithful, forever loving and forever with us!!
