Today I would like to dedicate this post to our readers. You've given Lynn and I the privilege of sharing our lives with you, and you've even allowed us to step in the gap with prayers and encouragement for many of you as well. When I think of what God is doing, how He's allowed us to participate in this ministry, I'm so humbled.
There's no mistaking God's great purpose. Paul even speaks of this in 2 Corinthians 1:3-7
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows. If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort.
It's such a huge undertaking to reach out and touch another person's life, to encourage, uplift and edify. To share something so painful, and to be rewarded by seeing another person comforted—their burden eased just a bit.
To be a witness to hope restored, faith strengthened...God glorified.
So I'm thanking you all today, for speaking into my life and allowing me to speak into yours. It is truly an honor. This ministry is so vital. Lynn and I are blessed to be a part of it and a part of your lives.
We are so blessed...by you.
