It's Friday and time for another Life Change Inbox! I have been sharing some of the wonderful emails my husband gets, where people share the work God is doing in their lives through Elevation Church. Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 3:2-4 that our lives are living letters written so that God might be glorified.
Here is Bree's story about the power of being in a small group...
About a year and a half into recovery God lead me to Elevation. My personal relationship with my Papa was evolving, but I felt as though something was missing. I went to Elevation for about a year before getting more involved. After I continued to hear from God through Pastor Furtick, God led me to search for an eGroup.
I was at an AA meeting one night talking to a friend about Elevation and a woman who attends Elevation heard me and came over. We started talking and got on the subject of eGroups. I told her about seeing Erika in the documentary. I really related to her and her struggles. The woman WAS IN ERIKA'S EGROUP and she invited me to join! I was so amazed and humbled that because of my addiction God used it to bring me closer to Him through Elevation and Erika.
I had been in Erika's eGroup for a couple of months when I need to find a new roommate. I had been living in a very negative and depressive environment. I had been going to Elevation every week and God used Pastor Furtick to confirm in my heart that he would provide for me. I told my eGroup my prayer request for a roommate. The NEXT WEEK, one of the girls came back with a card of a fellow Elevator woman who need a roommate!
I now live with her and I couldn't be happier and more blessed with my roommate. I am always lifted up by the worship experience and blessed by Pastor Furticks words from God. Thank you for allowing God to use you in such a powerful way in my life.
