Congratulations to Diane Bollinger of Mt Joy, winner of the new 7eventh Time Down CD “God is On the Move” as well as a FitBit Fitness Tracker! We asked you for examples of how you’ve seen God move in your life. Here’s what Diane had to say:

“Where do I begin? He has been opening doors for me so much lately, I can hardly keep up! In May I left my job of 2-1/2 years and began nannying for strangers—a time of learning and stretching!

“In June I started with symptoms of two different illnesses– more stretching and dependence on Him. I’m still going through testing but He has proved faithful!

“In July I witnessed 4 children from my 1st & 2nd grade Sunday School class be baptized!!

“God has plainly shown me that He is not done with me and He still wants to use me in spite of me, my illnesses and how I might perceive my value to Him and others.

“God is AWESOME and so FAITHFUL!!!!!!!”

Thanks to everyone who submitted your example of how God is on the move!
