"...with God all things are possible." Matthew 19:26

Last Monday night, many women came to Ladies' Night Out to eat a delicious dessert, sing praise songs, and hear Marlo Mitchell and Beth Wood talk about their recent trip to Israel.
One of the many beautiful tables that was decorated for the night.

It's so easy for us to say "I can't do this!" But God clearly states, "You can with my help!" Marlo and Beth both found themselves saying "I can't" while they were in Israel. They went there to show others the love of Christ, knowing there would be language barriers and safety concerns. Marlo and Beth even traveled to Gaza, one of the most dangerous places in Israel, and were able to minister to the secret believers who live there. So, instead of saying "I can't", they sought the Lord for strength and peace! Psalm 34:4 states, "I sought the Lord and He answered me, and delivered me from all my fears." And that's what He did for Marlo and Beth! He kept them safe and showed them what can be accomplished through Him! There may be times when you feel like you can't do something, whether it's grocery shopping when you have a million other things you need to do, paying bills when you may not have enough money, or even telling someone else about Jesus Christ. It's at all those times when we need to look to God for wisdom, peace and comfort! "I can do all things through Him who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13.

How awesome to be in a room full of women and hearing them all sing praises to Our great God!
