More Than I Could Have Imagined

3 women on 3 different continents. Who but God could connect them in the same ministry? This 1-minute devotion shares their story. #BibleLoveNotes #Bible #Devotions #Dutch #Suriname

Cathy’s no ordinary woman: she and her husband have been sharing the gospel in Suriname for almost 40 years, living without many of the conveniences we take for granted.

As a Bible Love Notes reader, Cathy had a good eye for typos and errors in my devotions. I was so blessed when she volunteered to be my editor. It was more than I could have asked or imagined!

But the story gets better.

In 2017 Aritha, a gifted woman in Holland, started translating Bible Love Notes into Dutch. That was another blessing I'd never imagined

But the story gets better.

Aritha had no editor. Having one would have been a blessing she could never have imagined.

But guess what.

Dutch is the official language of Suriname, and Cathy speaks it.

Who but God could orchestrate this partnership: three women who'd never met, on three different continents, volunteering together to share God’s Word. 

Without a doubt, our God “is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us” (Ephesians 3:20).

Note: Cathy has become more than an editor for me. She’s a personal friend and we’ve even had opportunity to meet face-to-face. Being in the family of God is a wonderful thing – more than we can imagine! See Revelation 7:9-10. ~ Gail

Bible Love Notes


  1. How amazing! Praise God! 🙌 This makes me so happy! ❤️

  2. Hi Gail, I so agree with you. God-ordained link-ups are the best. This blogging environment has been a huge blessing to me and am so grateful for it, and the ladies like yourself and Aritha, and the many others, who love Jesus completely.
    God bless

  3. Wow Gail. Isn't it amazing how God strategically, and beautifully weaves; (just) the right people into our lives, just when we needed the most? It is always truly more than I could imagine of Christ.

  4. Love this!!
    Always love seeing how God works!!

  5. Aaaah!

    Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

  6. Hi Gail, praise the Lord. I am so blessed to read your devotions every single day. I did comment on few posts earlier and you did reply to me which can be appreciated. Iam from India (settled in the UK). I speak Telugu language. Often times I felt the urge of doing the translation of your work, so that people who speak my language can be blessed too. I did some translation work for my church before and still do for any of my friends in Christ regarding Gospel work. I wanted to personally explain to you, i did send friend request in Facebook to you. Please let me know your reply. Looking forward to work together with you or would also like to join your prayer team. May God be honoured in everything we do as we strive to live for Him more stronger each day by the help of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

    1. Dear friend, I am sorry that this didn't get to me until now. My Facebook account was hacked and there are two accounts on Facebook with my name, but neither is actually me. Please contact me at this email address: BibleLoveNotes

      Thanks so much! I pray you will see this.
