We all need people who will see us, not by our mistakes or failures, a label, a rebellious period in life, a diagnosis, or a tragedy or obstacle that has set us back. What would the church be like if we stopped and saw people by what they were capable instead of incapable of doing?
I choose to be like my Mom with my son, not like the family member who tried to give me a life sentence, a definition of me based on the selfish need to be justified, control my future or play god. Only God knows the future.
It's time to stop and pray that people will be set free, to inspire them, cheer them on, and believe that the God who raised Jesus from the dead and saves all who call on Him in truth, can heal the sick and broken-hearted.
We can be part of their answer to prayer. I'm so glad my mom did not give up on me, and that she, to this day, disciples and brings out the best in me. May I do the same, not just with my son, but with every person I come into contact with.
God cares for you and you are constantly on His mind. Find a faith, truth and Spirit-filled mentor who will speak truth to you, help you stay on the path of life, not give up on you, inspire and bring out the best in you! God's definition of you and your choices could be very different than you think. We all need people to speak truth to us and to guide us in the right direction.
You also could be that mentor, truth-speaker and inspiration to someone to guide them to them find hope, joy and peace and to trust God to help them live an overcoming and abundant life!
"May the God of all hope fill you (and _______) with all joy and peace as you (and ______) trust in Him, so that you (and _______) may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Romans 15:13
Who are you mentoring, encouraging, and inspiring?
