“and let us consider [thoughtfully] how we may encourage one another to love and to do good deeds,” Hebrews 10:24 AMP
Happy Tuesday! When everything starts getting routine in our lives, it’s a great time to try something new. What will you try?
One thing I have noticed that is important to everyone is to have encouragement during our trials, and when we feel especially weak. How long does it take for you to be worn down after a long day of work when the house is mess and the kids are begging? How about when your grown kids need help, but so do your parents?
Everyone is going through different struggles in their lives all the time. At the end of the day there are two things that matter: God and people. Things are not what is most important. Sometimes it is difficult to find a balance between work and caring for family. That’s when we need to ask God for help and truly depend on Him to help us.
A friend of mine recently lost her mother. It has been difficult for her. Not only does she need encouragement, she needs help with housework and her kids. As a Christian family this is when we need to pitch in to make a difference. Together we can help one another without wearing ourselves too thin.
Recently I have been humbled by my friends and how much support they have shown me with my new book. People I never expected have come out to help. It is wonderful to help and receive help.
In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps. Proverbs 16:9
Good Morning. It’s Try Something New Tuesday! What will you try? Sometimes I feel like things try me, instead of the other way around. A few weeks ago I visited another church to watch a sermon review. Then, about a week later My husband and I visited our sister church. For the last 3-4 weeks a friend of mine who lives about 30 miles away invited me to visit her women’s bible study class. She’s invited me to other things, but it has never worked out. Last night I made a commitment and went. What fun! The leader is the minister’s wife. She cooked a country meal that was delicious. I met 10-15 nice ladies. Then, we enjoyed Bible Study. I loved it. What a great way to start the week! I’ve also been invited to visit yet another church for lunch on Tuesdays during lent. Does this mean that I’m leaving my church? No. I’m just enjoying meeting other people and listening to their discussions. It’s a great way to obtain a new perspective and hear about how God is working in the lives of others.
The verse for the week is Proverbs 16:9. No matter how much we plan our course, God is with us to help along the way. Whenever we worship God with prayer and ask for Him to show us the way, He will direct our paths.
