Encouragement For Your Day
Day 1 Love Challenge----->'If you have children, grown or not so grown ... no matter what they may have done EVER tell them somehow just what a joy they are to you and have been every minute of their lives!' If you don't have your own then bless someone else's! Dawn, Megan and Eric ....I do not have enough time on this earth to show you three the joy you have each brought into my life! Nothing and No one except Jesus truly knows how much I adore you all! The uniqueness God has knitted within each one of your hearts has truly been a life line so many times in my life! I adore you all even more so today as I did so many years ago! I'm honored to have been chosen to be your incubator! All my love ~Mama
Day3—"Love is kind" … OUCH! Now Iknow toes are sore … "right?" Wow, busted? I am! Just lastevening I failed miserable on this aspect! Challenge seems "bigger"than I expected! Dr. Charles Stanleysaid, "It takes 3 days to make a bad habit and "21" days tobreak one! Anyone still counting?
Father, Ichoose to surrender my mouth to Your use and ask Holy Spirit to speak forme! I pray for each person that works inthe "service" industry. Mayeach one be blessed beyond measure with joy and gladness no matter what or"who" shall come their way today and every day forward. I also pray for those of us that come theirway to be filled with Your "solutions" and not allow the enemy tocause us to be used as part of the "problem" in Jesus name!
Day 6 – Love Challenge"Love Considers the Lonely!" Instead of "wondering" why someone is lonely why don't we just take the initiative and reach out to them?God puts the lonely in our paths for a divine reason that benefits both people. Even though His ultimate plan brings good to both we still are required to be His hands and feet! Many people who are lonely will not reach out to strangers. However, those of us who know and listen to Holy Spirit's instructions and leading will also be given the strength, courage, and divine open window of opportunity to make that extension of not only friendship but also God's love!Ask Father to open a window of opportunity today for you to hold out your hand and heart in love and friendship … to the person or persons He chooses! Be excited to be His hands and feet to those you meet and also remember to greet them with His heart of love!
Day 7—Love Challenge"Love Does Not Judge!" … Wow! Did you know that this point in "society" is upheld to a higher standard than in "most" of our Christian communities? I was shocked to "hear" so much about "where" a person came from (who they were before Christ) from so many "church pew sitters" than the person themselves …Hardly ever will you hear who they are now and what they are doing for and through Christ. In fact most "Christians" "use" a person's "testimony" to "taint with many" that person's "salvation story" with "way" too many " facts about "what they were" before details…If you are like me, you have been the "subject" of these conversations but, you have also been among those "saying" those things about that person as well! Come on now … speak the truth … shame the devil RIGHT? You can be "yourself" and admit that you have taken part in "tearing" down and not "building up" your sister or brother in Christ at least once in your Christian life … I think we all have at one time or another. However, I pray once Holy Spirit conviction settled in you "stopped" or at least you asked Him for His help to be delivered.I steer clear away from anyone that begins a conversation with, "Girl let me tell you" … We all know what comes next! Just pray because it might not be "your" name "this time" … BUT … it will be at some other time!Father, please help us all to dwell less on a person's past, more on their present and strive to see him/her in the future sense completely set free and on fire for You. Help us to dwell less on the "test" and more on the "testimony!" Also Father, may we be able to be trusted with Your people and become a sanctuary, a haven of peace where they can come and "be their selves" and seek healing and encouragement. In Jesus Name I pray.
