Ephesians 4:12-13 "...to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ."
What a blessed time since March! The first order of wristbands are gone, and I received yesterday the second batch from Reminderband. I'm excited to see how God will lead and where they'll be mailed to.
#FaithHopeCourage wristbands have been given to family, friends, Believers and those I haven't met yet within the contiguous United States. Recipients were mailed a special message along with a wristband to encourage them on their journey.
Recalling with Christ's love how this journey began. I met Mike who has serious health issues through a mutual friend. Mike is a sweetheart with a gentle soul and I was moved with compassion to reach out. But how? When I arrived home the Holy Spirit prompted me to write a personal message for him. I have done this through letters before so this wasn't as crazy as it might seem. So typing on my keyboard in obedience came the gift #FaithHopeCourage with a God-idea of a wristband as well. Mike was very blessed,"Thank you for being the messenger." I hadn't thought of that until he said it, but I can see God's fingerprint all over this mission. Yes, I accept Lord.
Walking with Jesus as a Believer is an adventure, but serving in the ministry and imitating His example takes plain vanilla to a whole new flavor. Are you with me?
As we mature in Christ, we transform into His likeness in a spiritual process to imitate and love like He did. It's euphoric when Jesus takes residence in our hearts and we speak and act as He would.
My prayer is that I can continue to serve and honor Jesus in the ministry using the gift #FaithHopeCourage as an instrument to share God's heart for His children.
If you'd like to receive a wristband please contact me through email found in my profile on Blogger or message me on Twitter.
Faith Hope Courage is a message to those afflicted with sickness, facing trials, or in the chasm of despair.
In my own personal struggles I have found that these three elements have been the sustaining factor in which I can carry on in spite of circumstances, disappointments, or when life happens in any season.
Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Matthew 17:20 So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.
Romans 5:5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
Psalm 27:13 I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living.
