What is Multitudes on Mondays? It is a gathering of those in Ann Voskamp’s community at http://www.aholyexperience.com that take this day of the week to say
Those of you who read me regularly know that I have had a tough week. I was terminated from my work and have had to scramble to take care of my affairs in a timely fashion. While scrambling I have been made aware of some sweet fragrances in my life which had gone unnoticed in the bustle of business as usual. I have re-prioritized and today I use this space to set the record straight. My highest praise and thanksgiving go to:
#464 acquaintances who are wise counselors and take their time to give me invaluable advice and connect me with necessary resources.
#466 the cyber-community who comes here and encourages, encourages, encourages.
Do you have those times when you are going through something really dark and hard and long where God seems to reach out and just give you a nod to let you know He is there. That has happened to me day after day, intermittently throughout each day, through dozens of different people this past week. If you are reading this, you are quite probably one of them. Your obedience to God’s promptings help me make connections that would most likely have not been possible without you. I have named this year 2012 The Year of Grace. It is only the 16th day of the year and already I have felt His grace mightily through this termination experience.
When our days become dreary with low hovering clouds of despair, and when our nights become darker than a thousand midnights, let us remember that there is a creative force in this universe, working to pull down the gigantic mountains of evil, a power that is able to make a way out of no way and transform dark yesterdays into bright tomorrows. Let us realize the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice. ~Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
With the multitudes at Ann’s this Monday,
