8:28 Blessings Share Social {Week 4}

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,

to them who are the called according to his purpose.” 

Romans 8:28

 

Have you ever had a day when it just seemed like life itself was set against you? Maybe a situation you wanted to go one way went completely left and you couldn’t figure out why?  Or someone seemingly random crossed your path and for a reason you didn’t know left an impact in your day?  Do you have a testimony that you feel could lift someone else from a low place? Or simply a personal praise that may brighten someone else’s day?

In my life I call my these Godly set-ups my 8:28 Blessings.

MY 8:28 Blessing:

My story starts a couple of weeks ago with a post I wrote about my first day as Leader for my Girlies’ Daisy Girl Scout Troop.  When I sat down to write it I knew that I was going to make it a series, Girl Scouts: 2 Daisies And A Leader.  I wanted to keep a written record of the journey I was going to share with my Girlies and the adventures I knew we would have as I tried to balance being not only Momma but Troop Leader as well.

After I finished the post, I did my normal review and edit process and then went in to compose my Tweet.  Trying to write appealing content to draw readers for a new post in a 140 character limit can be a bit of a challenge at times.

At the last moment before hitting that ‘Tweet’ button I decided to rearrange some things so that I could fit in the twitter names for the both the Girl Scouts USA (@GirlScouts) and my local Council The Girl Scouts of North Carolina Coastal Pines (@GirlScoutsNCCP).  I have been followed by my local council since last year and often mention them in tweets concerning our Troop and I usually include the larger council on the off chance that we may get a ReTweet.  Yet,this time I felt lead to do so.

Once I hit the send button I pretty much went on with the rest of my day as usual.  Editing, writing, posting, tweeting, reading, etc.  Then maybe an hour or so later I got an alert through my phone….

Okay!  So not only was my post read and noticed by my local council but they wanted To REPOST it on the Council Blog?!?!?!?!  I was floating on Cloud 9…!! Was this seriously happening?

**I was also getting ReTweets about our Troop’s awesome new Slogan “Cupcakes & Hand Grenades”  1 of our Leaders came up with it because we are an Army Base Troop…get it Grils (cupcakes) and Army (hand grenades) LOL

Then not maybe 2 minutes later I was slapped in the face with just a bit of God’s exceeding and abundant #828Blessings

Wait! Wait! WAIT!  Not only did they want to RePost it but they wanted to start a full on SERIES?!?!?  Yes Ma’am that’s just how AWESOME my God is!  All this from an unction to add them to a tweet that I was all set to send with my normal {New Post} format.  Aaaaah Thank God for listening to the whispers of the Spirit.

So, the rest of that day was a flurry of emails and scheduling with the Social Media/Marketing Department and the results?  My first article: The First Meeting of my new SERIES with The Girl Scouts North Carolina Coastal Pines was officially published yesterday, September 20th! I could not be more excited, grateful or blessed than I feel right now.

This is truly a story of #828Blessings because I had no idea where that one tweet could lead…yet My God did!

Now its you’re turn…
Come, share, connect and fellowship…. with your #828Blessings

  1. That's a great testimony. I love hearing about other's people's blessings. It reminds me that God is still in the blessing business. Even when we least expect it He still shows up, love that!!!

  2. That's wonderful about the Girl Scouts. My mother just moved to Savannah from London this year so when we visited her this summer I took my daughter to visit Juliette Gordon Low's house. She saw troops of Girl Scouts also touring the house and immediately wanted to join the scouts too.

    • Thank you. Wow! That's wonderful! We would love to take our Troop to visit Juliette Gordon Low's house. We celebrate her Birthday as a Troop every year. I am sure your daughter would love and enjoy being a Girl Scout…I know mine do :)

  3. Wow! Now how are we supposed to follow that amazing story? Just kidding. What an amazing opportunity only made possible by our amazing God. He is just so great! So happy for you and I cannot wait to read more of this series!

    • Isn't He simply amazing??!?!!! I can never expect more than he can provide…

      Thanks so much and thank you for your support here at #828Blessings and for the series as well :)

  4. Tiffany,
    that's awesome! We never know who's gonna read the words we type. I just did my first volunteer stint at my daughter's troop last Thursday. We're going camping next month, so I'm excited.
    Again, great job!

    • Yes. I am so grateful and still in awe of God…

      You did? How was it? :)

      I hope you post (or at least share with me…lol) how the camping goes…my Daisies can't go camping just yet…
