Another exciting week, living and breathing a God-filled life! Yes, we still have trials and tribulations but with God, we can overcome any obstacle through His power and love at work in us.
Here’s a lowdown of the week:
We started the week by ‘Counting it all joy’, recognising that the trials we face are necessary for us to develop spiritual maturity and inner peace.
James 1:2-3 Consider it nothing but joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you fall into various trials. Be assured that the testing of your faith through experience produces endurance leading to spiritual maturity, and inner peace.
I shared a powerful story about an amazingly brave lady, Julie Aftab, who was persecuted for being a Christian and had acid thrown in her face. My WordPress friends and I discussed how the persecution we face, as Christians in the Western World, can be rather trivial in comparison to what Julie went through. We must continue to pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ who are persecuted for their faith.
Last week I was asked by my WordPress friends, Leon and Plutonia, to record a worship song called ‘The more I seek you’. I have been so blessed by this tender worship song. As I sing it I am taken straight to the throne room of grace and right into God’s presence.
Next Wednesday I will be sharing another beautiful worship song, ‘This is the air I breathe’, requested by my WordPress friend, Carlos.
If anyone has a request for a song, (Worship or Christian) please let me know.
I am so blessed and privileged to have made some wonderful friends here on WordPress and I received so many encouraging messages, relating to a circumstance I shared.
An update and testimony
Today I received a text from the person I spoke to you about on Thursday. The lady sent me a full apology and I was able to extend forgiveness to her. (It was only by the grace of God that I could do that).
Thank you to all those who held me up in prayer and also to my lovely friend, T.R Noble for starting up a Community Prayer Request page. It is so encouraging to know that people are praying for me and that we can support one another as believers in Christ.
So, that rounds up the week. Have a wonderful, blessed weekend!
