Once everyone got there, we worshipped and prayed and then they prayed over me and Richard and then everyone prayer walked through the house, waiting on The Lord for a word or scripture or vision concerning our family and house. It was so cool!! Some of the words that people shared were joy, sanctuary and unity. I too received the word joy and during our worship, we were listening to a slower hymn when all of a sudden the iPod shuffled, mid song, to a very upbeat jazzy version of a different hymn. Everyone began to giggle and we just went with it! We began to clap and dance in our seats and I just felt like God was saying to my heart this house was meant for joy, for your family and for others. One friend shared that he felt like God was going to use all that He has given us to reach so many people. And I can completely agree with that. I feel like we have been blessed abundantly and in turn we will use what we've been given to help others or bless others or just show others God's faithfulness. One friend went upstairs where all the kids' rooms are and she received the word mighty for the boys. She said even though the boys are small they will be mighty. What a wonderful word, I'm so glad she shared that!
It was such a special night, and one I will treasure always.
