Stagnant Water is NOT God’s plan! - Even during a drought...
I heard from an individual who reads the blog that she was talking with another person who visits the blog. That second person….call him FRED…was receiving the notices, but wasn’t sure why he was getting them……until the day God showed him why. At this point, I didn’t receive the whole story in detail, but the nutshell is that Fred has a relative whose close friend (I think) was having a rough time with a divorce filed against them. So Fred passed along the site to the relative, so it could be shared with the friend.
I want to challenge you to consider that God has a purpose in you reading this blog as well. Maybe you are not getting divorced, and maybe you don’t even know somebody who is getting divorced with whom you can share the material. But maybe, like Fred, somebody you know is aware of somebody who is desperately need of this kind of hope. And maybe, like Fred, you don’t even realize it. Kind of like that whole “six degrees of separation” thing. What can you do?
It is my hope and prayer that the materials I have put together get to the hands and hearts of those who really need it. But I cannot do that without your help. If you feel this site has something worth reading now and then, I want to suggest that you recommend it to several of your friends by sending them the link and telling them about it. Those friends of yours may be the ones who know somebody who NEEDS to know about this blog and my little book. Or maybe it will be their friends who knows that person. But God knows even now the ones He desires to reach with His love through this ministry.
Ah, but like my friend, you may feel like the blog is good for you, and that maybe God is trying to speak to YOU. Well, that may well be, I would never question that. But in my experience, God rarely touches people just for our own sake. Instead, he gives these things to us so that we can pass them along to others in need. So that He can use us. Paul expresses this very notion in 2 Corinthians 1:1-5 where he indicates that the comfort God gives us, God wants to use to comfort others THROUGH us! Somebody once said we are meant to be conduits of God’s love and grace, not cisterns. I want to ask you directly to intentionally make yourself that conduit…..pass along the link. Who knows what might happen.
TL:DR God may have placed people within your circle who either need to know about this blog site, or who know somebody else who needs to know about it. Our job is to pass it on.
