E is for Encouragement

Life can be tough at times and quite often it's hard to see what impact we might be having on the world.

So today it was such an encouragement and a blessing to be approached by a well respected member of the community where our church meets and be thanked for all we do for the community. I particularly loved it when he said "I know you're not full on Sundays, but what you do during the week is really appreciated".

I've always believed that church is about what we do from Monday to Saturday so it was great to hear it's working in practice.

The second encouragement that really lifted my soul this morning was hearing that one of the kids (now an adult) we used to work with in Chris Nissen Park got baptised on Sunday, and as part of her testimony she told the church how Paula & I had first planted the seeds of faith in her life.

I wouldn't mind a few more days with such wonderful encouragements in them.

Thank you LORD!
