The Girls Can Do It Too

         This past week I was part of the first ever Sisterhood Revival for the Frisco Baptist Association. The ladies met at Trinity Baptist Church in Valliant. At the same time, the men were having their own revival at First Baptist Valliant. I am here to tell you these ladies are awesome! We had a good time trying to figure out how to do revival without the men. We all looked around to see who was going to start the meeting.  The leader took a deep breath and headed to the pulpit to do the welcome and pray; then we were off. Next thing you know it is time for the offering and "oh no, what do we do now?" Everyone got a little tickled  trying to figure out their role. Some ladies jumped up and came to the altar to get the offering plates; while another lady headed to the piano. You would have thought none of us had ever been to church much less a revival. The special music was presented and then I was up. Things were rocking along and then here it came; the altar call. We didn't have a pastor to stand and meet people coming to the front. What to do??????? You know what? God took control and the altar was filled with ladies meeting with their Lord one on one. It was humbling and exciting. (We had it figured out by the next night)

As I thought about the revival, I found myself laughing. I thought about how funny we must have looked, just like little kids, playing church.(Remember baptizing your brother in the horse tank? Or was that just me?)You know it doesn't matter how you do the service.  All that matters is that you have that one-on-one with your Lord.

The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.
Psalms 145:18
