Far Beyond and Infinitely More


Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Ephesians 3:30 NLT

This morning I just wanted to express my overflowing gratitude for God and for you who have prayed for our nursing home outreach. Since reopening the three homes I visited pre-Covid only 2 of them have returned to somewhat normal attendance. One facility which is nice but understaffed has been so unresponsive that though I was earnestly praying for people to come I was ready to give up our meetings. Then two weeks ago God began His answer by having a sympathetic staff person get involved who brought in 8-10 people. At the time I posted here about my excitement at God’s answer but I was totally unprepared for yesterday’s amazing experience.

It began an hour before I was scheduled to come when one of the residents called my cellphone. This would normally have been my week to sing for the memory care unit but Lucy let me know they had me on the calendar for a different room. A bit confused I prepared some extra devotional newsletters to give out and loaded my things in the car.

On entering Watermark Assisted Living the lady at the desk directed me towards a meeting room on the first floor I had never seen before. In a bit of confusion I carried my guitar and music stand around a few corners till finally I walked into a room jammed with more than twenty residents and family members from every ward including my special memory care friends! So today I simply am posting to give God glory and say thank you to every one of you who have prayed, commented and encouraged me along the way. No matter how long I have been following Jesus, He never seems to run out of new ways to amaze me by his far beyond – overwhelming – and infinitely more way of answering prayer!

      Thank you Beth. I was just so overwhelmed and amazed by yesterday that I was bursting with excitement to share it.

  2. This is great, Pastor Pete. God teed the ball up for you Himself, and all you had to do was “swing for the green!”\

      I didn’t do one single thing any different or any better but just had to share the blessings. They even invited me for ice cream afterward but I had a lady waiting at home with chocolate pie! Thanks Dave. Did you do prison outreach and have you been able to get back to it yet?

  3. What a nice surprise. I love it when God does things like that, “just because.” ❤

      Amen just because He loved us first and on some days He knows we all need a reminder! Thanks for joining the conversation!
