The Lord brings encouragement in many different places. Have you ever experienced that? Sometimes I think we believe it has to be through believers or from the bible. The truth is God can use anything to encourage his people and at times it can come from the most unlikely place. I was encouraged today by someone who called me to express love and concern who doesn’t know and love the Lord. It was a sweet/bitter moment. Sweet in that I felt encouraged, bitter in that I felt sorrow for their choice to reject the truth of Jesus Christ. My hope is those of us who call themselves Christ followers will continue to be testimonies of the God who loves, guides, transforms and saves.
