It was 5 am when I heard a distinctive sound. Numi was about to throw up in my room. I scooted her outside, thanked God for waking me up, and protecting my row of shoes.
My phone was blinking, letting me know I had mail. It was a comment on my Blog, and it touched my heart so deeply, I’m shaking as I type this. God was at work early this morning.
A woman found my Blog during the night, and read Blog after Blog, after Blog.
She left a comment, but then had a change of heart and asked me to delete it. I will do as she asks, but her comment will be forever imprinted on my soul. I needed to hear her words.
God works through people. They tell us what we need to hear. That is my hope while I write. That God will work through me, and you will read something you need to hear.
This woman validated what I have been doing the past three years. I’ve posted so many Memes on social media, I told my daughter yesterday, “My life is a Meme.” She laughed and disagreed, but from all those Memes, I could run some of my favorite ones through my mind at any time. I am mindful when talking with friends, or I’ll give them a quote from a Meme.
You can laugh along with me here, but it’s true. So, what God has called us to do, which is encouraging others, is a gift. People are reading our words, seeing our Memes, and it helps keep them going. What I want this woman to know is, the comment she left this morning will help keep me going.
When you leave a comment, your words fill me with hope and love.

Thanks for sharing! A great reminder that we just never know who/when/or how God will use us if we’re open. You’re inspiring me!

We never know, but God does. Thank you lovely. xx We inspire, love and encourage one another! Sharing is caring. ❤
You just never know whose heart you’re going to touch. Or who needed just the gentle push or prodding of your words to reinstate their purpose and focus. These are the lovely and reassuring rewards of His work through us. Thank you for opening yourself up to being His instrument. We hear Him through you and your encouragement. What a blessing! 💛
