You find what you’re looking for, right? I appreciate all those who use social media to encourage others and there are lots! Below you’ll find just a glimpse of all the good people I’ve seen this past week. Enjoy, and happy Monday!
“To free yourself from guilt, you must practice the 4 R’s:
- Repentance Acts 8:22
- Restitution Lk. 19:8
- Reformation Rm. 6:4
- Rejoicing Psa. 51:12“
2. Because I LOVE it when spouses encourage each other, here’s a post by Kara Davidson to her husband (with permission, of course):
“You did an amazing job with your sermons the past few weeks! Linder is so blessed to have two outstanding ministers! Love you!”
3. Beautiful, beautiful blog post about anxiety by Emily Hatfield…prepare to be touched:
4. Sweet friend Wendy Chesser keeping it real on facebook:
“Ya know, when you are asked to lead a prayer for a Ladies event (and you are too embarrassed to say no) and you want the truth about how you did….just ask your 14 year-old daughter, who replied to my asking, by saying, “Well, it was nice, but….you kinda’ made this giant sniff and everybody heard the snot rattle in your nose”…just like to apologize for that!!! ;O)”
5. From my favorite humorist, Celine Sparks:
“I thought I would count a different kind of sheep in order to get to sleep last night. I would think of a preacher for each letter of the alphabet (first name). I got all the way to Alan Highers.”
6. Under the category of Practical and Outstanding, Neal Pollard‘s blog article about what to do when you’re given the cold shoulder:
7. Wise facebook post from consummate encourager, Jeff Archey:
“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well” (Ps. 139:14). Was reading this AM and it brought to mind the commercial of the couple at the concert looking for their little boy and they looked on the stage and there he was…seated at the piano of the world renowned entertainer everyone gathered to see. The little boy was playing “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” as a child would when the entertainer walked up behind him, paused and looked and said, “Keep playing.” The famous pianist added in notes and melodies and it harmonized beautifully. Like that little child, we as children of God have days that may be gloomy and down; sometime boring to ourselves and others. But as we are “fearfully and wonderfully made,” our Father God grants us individuals and moments that brings forth the melodies in our lives and it harmonizes beautifully to His glory. Look for them daily…it starts with me…and you. Let’s keep playing…and keep living.”
