Prepare the Way of the Lord (His Encouragement #4)

December 11, 2018

Girl, you have me singing after a rough night. ANYBODY NEED ENCOURAGEMENT?

Rev. Rebecca Writes

What is “His Encouragement?”

Thursdays are always a really long day of the week for me. Since I’m a pastor, Sunday feels like the natural beginning to my week.  By the time I get to Thursday, I am tired and drained. That’s why I’m excited to join with a group of blogging friends in order to offer you a weekly devotional which will be posted every Thursday. We are calling the series, “His Encouragement.”

It is my prayer that these words of encouragement inspired by scripture will help to carry you through the rest of your week  My prayer is that this weekly series will be a much needed reminder that God loves you.

I heard the sweet sound of a bird

calling out from a high branch.

No answer,

he didn’t give up.

He showed no anger.

He listened . . .

he called again.

He enjoyed his perch,

Love is patient.

Love never fails!

Love is eternal.

Fills my heart and soul.

“Good Morning” Hope seems to say.

I rise.
