#2101 Encourage Love and Help Out


Hebrews 10:24 Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out.

A line I heard in a sermon by T.D. Jakes. Cant even remember what the sermon was about, but during it he asked sais “Imagine if God wants to do somethng completely new and He wants to do it through you?”

Jesus said John 14:12  “The person who trusts me will not only do what I’m doing but even greater things, because I, on my way to the Father, am giving you the same work to do that I’ve been doing. You can count on it.”

What an encouragement! What a challenge! God cares enough about me that not only did He provide a Way for me to overcome my addictions and compulsions but He als made a Way for me to be used by Him to be different and make a difference.

Every year in the lead up to Christmas I like to take inventory on my spirirual walk thus far. And, dream and roughly plan what I want to achieve for the next year. 2019 is my 30th anniversary of Living Life Recovery from Bible-based principles. I’ve been in recovery since 1987 but I became a follower of Jesus Christ in 1989. That both encourages me and challenges me as I contemplate what the New Year will bring.
