Week 281: ENCOURAGE~Beautiful YOU

A dear Christian Mentor friend called me this morning.  Her words of encouragement were just what I needed.    I could sense my burdens being lifted from my shoulders as she spoke over me and prayed.   She also shared many good scripture verses with me too.  Such a blessing.   I was telling her about my plant that usually sits on the table.  I have many household plants (about 50).  This particular one was from my daughter.  Watering day is usually on Monday, and they all just get a drink then.   But because of the holidays and my mom's failing health (hospital runs), and helping my daughter with the wedding(Jan 27th).. I completely forgot to water plants.  Well, I noticed it the other day when the lovely fittonia was laying flat on the soil dead is what I assumed.  So sad.  I picked it up and gave it a drink.  and PRAISE the LORD the little plant has started to show signs of life again.  I hope it survives.  But you know it made me think of my life with out Jesus, Bible study and prayer.  Just lifeless and limp.  He truly is the Living Water that makes our soul bloom.  I'm so thankful to Him for that gentle reminder of getting back in "step" with Him.   Which now brings me to today's card.   Encouragement.  God never leaves us.  We just need to take that first "step"  He will be there with open arms.  I also like the acronym for FAITH=Forwarding-All-Issues-To-Heaven
I'm going to submit this card to the challenge at: CASology
I also thought I'd include a song that came to my mind about taking the first step
Thank you for stopping by.
Keep Smiling and Keep Stamping.
