"Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever"
TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria
God wants to do exceedingly abundantly above all you can ever ask, think, or imagine. In another place, it says that no person has ever seen, heard, or even imagined the wonderful things that God has in store for those who love the Lord. But notice that it's according to the power working in us. God's power works in us by our faith or how we believe. Do you believe today that God wants to work in your life exceedingly abundantly above all you could ask or think? Do you believe He wants to overwhelm you with His goodness and blessing?
The Bible says that if we have faith the size of a tiny mustard seed, we can move mountains. And no matter how much faith we have, faith can grow in us by hearing, studying, and receiving the Word of God.
I encourage you today, make God's Word a priority. Believe that He will do exceedingly abundantly above all you can ask or think. He is faithful to His Word, and He will be faithful to fulfill every promise He's made to you!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
"Heavenly Father, thank You for Your goodness in my life. Thank You for blessing me and for doing exceedingly abundantly above all I can ask or think. Thank You for increasing my faith as I focus on Your Word. In Jesus' Name. Amen."
The Lord continues DAILY to go beyond all I have imagined ... NO eye has seen, nor ear heard ... PRAISE THE LORD!!!!
... tonight heading downtown to hear Rob Bell:) GLORY....
GRACE AND PEACE!

Tomorrow will be my 4th and final Beads By Beth open house (it will be at my home, email me for directions : email@example.com) to have orders completed by Christmas ... the first 3 have blown me away!
I have been so blessed by gracious hosts, wonderful guests and many new customers. This is about to take off .... and I am so excited to be creating, again. The parties have been set up with a display and sampling of my work. Then I talk with each guest (if they are interested) and we design their piece. I love talking through the creative process. So many ideas that can not all come just from my head. That is the aspect of teaching that I do miss - working through problems. Creating solutions that had not been imagined before.
I am looking forward to continued momentum for 2010 - I have dear friends that have ideas that will help me expand ... and they not only have ideas - they offered to help:)
so i loved the devotion from joel ....
