Feel like having tea with me?
1. I'm having... my morning hot tea (Twinings Irish Breakfast Tea) in my giraffe print mug. I just love animal prints!
2. I'm feeling.... compassion for Ruth and the people of Thailand - I've been through a flood myself. I know what an ordeal it is.
3. On my mind.... it seems unbelievable, but a lot of good things came out of the flood. Our house is better off since it has been totally rebuilt. We learned some great spiritual truths as well. For one thing, we know now beyond a shadow of a doubt that our Lord loves us and will work things out if we trust Him. For us, it was a real living example of Romans 8:28 at work!
4. A line, a verse, or a quotation to encourage the readers (and yourself):
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28 NIV
Can I share one more? (Again, because I used this in an earlier post - but it's so good!)
"Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place." 2 Cor. 2:14 KJV
This doesn't mean we always come out ahead materially, but in some way we are better off after going through a trial. Then we should testify of how God brought us through triumphantly and the fragrance of His goodness will be everywhere!
