unexpected encouragement

*a timely word spoken

*a butterfly while running

*a tweet reply saying “feeling His pleasure over that tweet right there.”

*writing an e-mail that made me cry to find God in speaking to me through my own words

*being reminded that I can nap and let God work while I sleep

*someone’s facebook status that turns into a new background

*so many texts saying “i’m praying”

*sprinting through the bible in 90 days

*an “I’m proud of you”

*a song that speaks about my knight in shattered armor who is unbreakable

*the beautiful kiddos that hug me close every time I see them at church

*the little one who let me hold her while she colored…she didn’t know how much heart just needed to be held

*a text that hit home on more levels than the sender knew–God knew and He’s pretty sweet and pretty much got me in awe…”You desire His best, and it WILL come! Peace-His peace, comes with our giving up/giving over.”

Encouragement is everywhere. God is everywhere. You just have to take the time to remember and to learn to see Him in everything. He’s there. He’s holding your hand. He’s waiting with you.Β  Even when your heart is quiet and you don’t have much to say. It’s okay. He’s there.Β  He’ll hold you even when you wish you had a roomie to hold you. He’ll wipe your tears. He’ll still call you lovely especially with your teary green eyes. Yeah, He’s madly in love with you and He delights in you.

  1. What a great list of encouraging encounters you’ve compiled. πŸ™‚ You’re intentionally looking for God — and He says when we seek Him we will find Him when we seek with all our heart!

  2. So many love notes from God to you… I echo your friend’s text: You desire His best, and it WILL come! Peace-His peace, comes with our giving up/giving over.” You are not just one in His Kingdom. You are the apple of His eye. And there is no one like you, Katy! So encouraging to see you trusting Him, time and again.

    • ohhhh, bonnie! YOU are such an encouragement and definitely make my heart smile. i love seeing you pop up on here and in my e-mail πŸ™‚
