“God can do anything, you know –
far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams!
He does it – not by pushing us around – but by working within us, His Spirit deeply and gently within us.” Ephesians 3:20 The Message
We’ve returned from a leaders training/discipleship in Cape Coast, a large fishing area. 14 teaching/training environments over 4 days.
The theme – To Follow is to Fish. “Come follow me and I will make you a fisher of men.” – Jesus
Once again, we are reminded that God is not looking for ability – just AVAILABILITY.
We believe, the best we can do – is surrender,,, to Him – Surrender to His great love.
