NOTES FROM US

salvation, ministry, reaching out, evangelism

He made a change...now what?

I have been looking back over our journey and began thinking of how much God has done in our life.  I look at not only how much He has changed who I am in knowing Him through the salvation experience I made many years ago, but more so how He has changed me as an individual, a wife, a friend, and even a servant for Him.  In the last blog, I pointed out the importance of how Knowing Him seems to make a change on us not only inwardly, but outwardly as well.  I was reminded of a the old song entitled, “He made a change”.

1-31-13 - KNOW THE LORD

I once heard, “you don’t throw something away just because it’s a little broken”.  I see how applicable this is when it comes to our lives as well.  This week has been no exception.
 
This week, I have encountered stories from other women who are struggling with areas in their lives.  One young lady came to me and discussed some areas in her life where she has begun to see she needs something more.  She has lived a life of drugs and alcohol, of immorality, and great sin.  She had even been told by someone that she was not worthy of the Christian life and God couldn’t forgive her.

When the church is gone

As we have been able to go from place to place and view the beautiful sights of this country, we seen astonishing things.  We have described some of the most precious places to you.   We have given you images of secluded places, natural beauty, sights that were unimaginable and so many that were breathtaking.  It has been so exciting to see what new and beautiful sight the Lord would bless us with each day.   However, we have also shared with you things like forgotten faces of those we have encountered.

It's Raining

Here we are on the east coast in what continues to be rainy weather. The forecast continues to show us that there is more in sight. The weather continues to bring in not just rain, but cold, potential freezing rain and even snow. As we have listened to the forecast, we actually have enjoyed the continual rainfall. As we seek the Lord each morning, it has been so neat to sit inside our camper and hear that pouring rain as it falls atop the roof. The rain continues to pour, sometimes slowly, and other times at a steady, even pace.

Who Defines It?

How do you define what ministry is? How do you decide to whom you will minister? Do you choose someone by their race, their hair color, or even shape or size? Do you only minister someone(s) only when they are in a major crisis? How is someone to decide what real ministry is? Is ministry only in the church? Do we only minister to the sick and ailing or sing carols at Christmas to shut-ins and those who are lonely? So how should we really define what ministry should like to others or even to ourselves?
