My Divine Assignment: To Encourage Others

A dear friend who has gone to be with the Lord once told me I was her Barnabas which Biblically means "encourager." I never saw myself like that, but as I've grown in my walk with the Lord it seems that is my desire. I hope that what I share here will be an encouragement to you as we trust the Lord - for great is His Faithfulness.

My Divine Assignment: To Encourage Others.
In Christ's Love, Shelley

KEEP His JOY IN TRIALS, TEARS & TRIUMPHS ~~ A WOMAN'S HEART SHOULD BE SO COMPLETELY LOST IN God THAT A MAN MUST SEEK Him TO FIND HER ~~ Our desire to learn God's Word must be greater than our need to breathe ~~

Move the "S"

     It seems that this post will be a continuation of my last post which was a continuation of the post before that. I guess I can claim my first "post series" & I think that phrase has something to do with sports also, but I'm not a follower in that arena - I leave that to my hubby. 
     A few days after my prior post on "resigning" I was reading my morning devotions for August 28th.  The title: He Reigns.  It speaks of God being sovereign over the entire universe & He reigns over my little corner of that universe.  "Your Heavenly Father may not always reveal Himself as quickly (or as clearly) as you would like. God is in control, He is here & He intends to use you in a wonderful, unexpected way. He desires to lead you along a path of His choosing.  Your challenge is to watch, to listen , to learn...and to follow."
     Then I looked back at the title & I thought "move the S."  When I reSign myself to God's will then He reignS in my life. And as God loves to bring the little things together in our lives I had just purchased a book for my little girls that I used to read to my girls - The King Who Rained by Fred Gwynne (anyone remember him?)

Even the title of this book can be drawn in.  For as we resign our lives to God, He will reign in them for His Glory even when it rains !!!!  How can we ever doubt a God that is so involved in every detail of our lives even when we don't acknowledge it.
In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.  Proverbs 3:6
Let us not hesitate to allow God to be our All-in-all so that others will see His Son Jesus Christ in us.  Let us say to the world, My King Reigns !!!!
