Sisterly love

May 22nd, 2010

We had our secret sister party on Monday! First, let me tell you a little about my secret sister. When I first came to Calvary Chapel I struggled a little and as I was sitting eating with my family Alisa came up to me with a smile and said, “Hey Dani! We are doing secret sister you wanna draw a name?” I thought to myself, ” Well, of course I am even though I don’t want to but since you put me on the spot..” This was my attitude! Ungrateful! Even thought I didn’t show it, my heart was so sick! So, to you who are reading this journal entry make sure your heart has pure motives. Phil 4:8! If not, it is NOT pleasing to the Lord and will hinder your relationship with God and others..

Throughout the months here, my secret sister has given me encouraging words in her gifts, chocolates on those days of emergencies, scripture verses in her artistic creations, and her prayers! I knew she was praying for me! Every time I prayed and had a petition the Lord answered them with my secret sister gifts…no, not money but her words and thoughts of love! Things like, I NEED A CHOCOLATE BAR LORD!!! At one time I was so focused on trying to figure out who it was I forgotten the main purpose of it all..and started to think about what will I get this time..how selfish we can become. I lost focus on what was true, the love God has for us. Because she prayed for me diligently the Lord spoke to her on what I needed and yes at times He blessed me with things a wanted, even to her it didn’t make sense however, she remained obedient to His guidance and gave me the right verses for that day, and a simple chocolate bar for another. Isn’t He just amazing how He cares so much for the little details of our lives?

Matthew 6:32-34 For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.   But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.   Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

During our party they asked if we would like to share any blessings during our months here. A few of us shared and it was so beautiful how these girls just poured out their hearts and thankfulness. I had a chance to share and the interpreter, Vivian Farkas, translated for me..She seemed a little different with what I had to say, she seemed “brighter” I can’t explain it I guess you had to of been there. I explained some of my struggles and the blessings I found because of my secret sister and how Sophia was blessed with half of the chocolate bar. How she blessed more than one person through her gifts to me. How the Lord just works through those prayers for others.

Now the time was at hand where we went to reveal our secret…and guess who was mine?? Yes, it was Vivan! No wonder she have a different look I basically told her how much she blessed me…I of course screamed with joy and gave her a hug..it was amazing! At the end she shared how it’s not about the gifts..as Paul explained in Philippians, but the heart behind it..And how sometimes when God asks you to do something or to get something for someone..just listen and obey…He knows exactly what He wants to do with it. My encouragement to all, listen and obey you will be blessed and you will bless. God loves us so much and cares for us so much that He will provide even the simplest things we just need to open our eyes to it..
