Inside, the printed part of the card read:
When change is everywhere
and you are feeling overwhelmed,
please remember that God
is everywhere too,
and He is always with you.
It was just the perfect thing I needed to read and hear! I am so amazed at how God works through others. One of these days, I'm going to design a greeting card that says, "God Used You." And I would send it to this couple. God used them and I was encouraged. I'm so glad they listened when He promped them! So often this happens to me that someone contacts me with a card, or a phone call, or a visit just when I need it the most. God uses them to encourage me.
The Cantata went off without a hitch. On Easter morning, I woke up and I was calm. I didn't have butterflies and my hands were not shaking. I got dressed and as I looked into the mirror I realized people were praying for me. Later at church, many people told me that they were praying for me. I felt those prayers. Those prayers washed over me and carried me through what could have abeen a difficult stressful morning. God used the prayers of those people to calm me.
I just hope that I am as useful to God as all of those that blessed me.
