"Words Of Encouragement"

I'm not sure why I am still amazed with the things God shows me in my life and knowing it is Him speaking very clearly to me.  I don't believe in coincidences but I believe in the Holy Spirit guiding and directing my life.  I have a system when I'm reading my Bible and today part of my Psalms reading was in chapter 18.  I then read a chapter in Proverbs, then went to my daily reading.  Today happened to be 2 Samuel 22.  I quickly realized these were the same words I had just read in Psalms and it was as if God was speaking to my heart.  I could rewrite both chapters in my blog but that would take a lot of space.  With tears streaming down my face, I knew God was speaking clearly to me as I read the words in my Bible today.  Verses 28-30 "For it is you who light my lamp; the Lord my God lightens my darkness.  For by you I can run against a troop, and by my God I can leap over a wall.  This God-his way is perfect; the word of the Lord proves true; he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him."

I received 3 envelopes today from a young man that grew up in our youth group.  He has since graduated from college and lives in Springfield, MO.  He is part of a Life Group and he and other young people in his group took the time to write me words of encouragement and sent me scripture verses to let me know they were praying for me even though they had never met me.  I'm not sure why I wore makeup today with so many tears falling.  Thank you Matt Potter and your group for taking the time to encourage my spirit and life today.  It amazes me that God continues to show me His love through so many people.  I never want to take for granted the many prayers that have been and continue to be lifted up on my behalf.  God is so gracious to me.  My daughter's friend Jessica didn't know about these letters that were sent to me today and I have not seen her since November.  She was at Jordan's house this evening and we had a chance to visit and she told me her community group still prays for me each week.  God is showing me that through others faithful prayers, I can have peace, perseverance, refreshment, joy, trust, healing, faith and so much more. 

Jordan, Bryan and his boys came over tonight for pizza while David and Jenna had to work.  We decided to take a trip to downtown Bentonville for the "First Friday on the Square".  We made it around the square amongst many people but we didn't last too long.  GPa and Bryan heated up quickly carrying 2 little guys around.  I am so thankful my children enjoy hanging out with their parents.

"Today is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it."
