What a joy it was to welcome back Lynda Hulcoop! And what an interesting afternoon as Lynda told us her life story relating it to the fact that God weaves His patterns into our lives. Lynda referred to the poem, Life is but a Weaving which has been attributed to Corrie ten Boom:

Lynda testified to her experience of God’s goodness and faithfulness saying that God does not leave anything to chance.  He is the Master planner.  He knows every individual life, their particular pattern which He ordained and their purpose. Nothing that happens to us is ever wasted – God weaves everything together. Isn’t it a good job that we don’t know God’s plans for us? We surely wouldn’t be able to cope! We just need to trust Him step by step, day by day!

Lynda shared the three verses that have meant so much to her over the years:

Proverbs 3 v 5-6 – Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will direct your paths.

Jeremiah 29 v 11 – “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Matthew 6 v 33 – “Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness.”

What verses do you hold dear?

Lynda concluded by encouraging us that we may not be able to change the world but we can make the most of every opportunity that comes our way to tell our story – to share with the individual – one at a time!
