God's Word Wednesday

Several followers have asked...."how is your brother's church doing?"  I am happy to say - really good.  Read more here in earlier post:  http://dickybirdsnest.blogspot.com/2013/07/good-samaritan-elderon-wi-apostolic.html

Two weeks ago, Frank's message was about being encouraged in God's Word.  He had us go around and read our favorite scripture and what it means to us.  He challenged us to encourage others with God's word - the Bible.

The very next day, I was working at the antique shop.  This elderly gentleman came in.  He was asking about a pattern of depression glass his wife collects.  She was waiting in the car.  He tells me that his world has turned "topsy turvy" over the past 6 months.  Decline in his wife's health, selling their life long home, moving to an assisted living - you know - what everyone of us will face one day.  He actually had tears in his eyes.  

I felt, I knew in my heart, my spirit told me what I needed to do - encourage him with God's word.  I said "sir, Jesus just told me that I need to pray for you and your wife."  If you are a regular follower, you know how experience has taught me to listen to Him.  Those experiences, Frank's message the night before and my empathy for his situation helped me to be BOLD.  I handed him one of our church's cards and said that the people who attend want you to know we are praying for you.  

Did I offend him?  Was he mean to me?  No, he actually looked happy and said "thank you."  

So, I am going to try to do as many regular posts that I can on Wednesdays called God's Word Wednesday.

Let's encourage each other with His Words.  Feel free to leave a comment of what scripture is your favorite.  

So this week my word was BOLD.  

According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:  In whom we have BOLDNESS and access with confidence by the faith of him.  Ephesians 3:11-12

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.

Hi Jacky! I want that kind of boldness! I need to copy that scripture down! This is one of my favorites: Prov. 16:3 Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed. I look forward to God's Word Wednesdays! Thanks for sharing! Blessings from Bama!
