4 - Day 36 – Love is God’s Word
“Commit to reading the Bible
every day. Find a devotional book or other resource that will give you
some guidance. If your spouse is open to it, see if they will commit to
daily Bible reading with you. Begin submitting each area of your life to
its guidance and start building on the rock.”
four and new doors still open for the dares to be completed every day even if I
think they have already been completed in the last rounds. Seek and knock—He
answers! In round two I followed His direction to quit the Bible Study I was in
since the OM’s sister was a part of it. Shortly thereafter I also started going
to a different church that I pray one day my husband will be joining me at. I
have yet to get plugged in to a new Bible Study. Once I read today’s dare He
gave me direction that I need to move forward with joining another group even
though I will not know anyone, so I put the request in to the leader of a
ladies group that meets Wednesday evenings.
went to my ed fair that lasted a few hours then went back to the hotel to relax
for a little bit before going to a movie with my mom. My husband texted and
called me this afternoon, which hasn’t happened since before he moved back in.
Will be praying this overflows into when I get back from my trip.
being on a journey such as this your eyes cannot help but be opened everyday to
His blessings big and small. What may sound trivial to some and even dismissed
as coincidence, I think not. The first is when my mom and I went to the movie.
Typically I will get candy from a local convenience store and bring it into the
movie. Due to trying to watch what I’ve been eating since not able to exercise
like I normally do I opted not to. Sure enough the one and only time we have
ever been asked to open our purses because it is policy—we had nothing to hide.
then went to dinner afterwards. My mom and I have been trying to share entrees
to save on cost. This evening was no different. Well, the restaurant forgot to
add chicken into our chicken pesto, so they surprised us by cooking up another
whole helping of pasta rather than just some chicken. We now had two entrees
for the price of one. Since we have a mini fridge at the hotel we boxed up the
leftovers to take back to our room. On the way back I felt led to share the
leftovers with someone that needed it way more than my mom or I did. Across the
street from our hotel was an older lady sitting down holding a sign. We crossed
the street and I gave her the leftovers. Her face lit up and a big smile spread
across it. My heart melted. Besides very rare moments of giving what little
change I might have on me to someone that asks, I shamefully have never done
anything like that before.
of my new favorite quotes I think is fitting for how I am feeling right now—“Anyone
who thinks that sunshine is pure happiness has never danced in the rain.”
Wow sounds like a very blessed day! Praise God for his blessings which you in turn shared with someone else. Praise God for his work on your hubby with his contacts to you today! Yayyyyyy fantastic!
All through the Bible it speaks of taking care of the poor, so part of your testimony is that you have seen that door open...
Fantastic! You were blessed, your cup running over, and you chose to share with someone who does not have as you..
That is love right there Jenn.
Adding to Sean's comment, keep in mind that the most poor of us are not those of us lacking in material things. The truly poor, and the ones I think our Father truly point us to, are the spiritually bankrupt. I see people who have so much...but are so, so, so poor.
