Very Encouraged Part 2

I hope that you have read part one so you can enjoy reading part two as much as I will enjoy writing it.

Tonight I had to make phone calls to supporters. If you are raising support, you know what comes over you when having to make calls. It is fear of the uncertainty, not really being sure how people are going to react to you calling them. My first few calls were made to set up appointments with people this week, all about which I am excited.

Then began the conversations that were such a blessing to have. I shall highlight three.

1) I called my friend's mom. She and I talked a few weeks ago and she told me she was interviewing for a job that she was really needing. I called after the interview to see how it went and I got her voicemail so I left a message. Then tonight I decided to call back and she picked up. She began telling me about the training she was going through for her new job so I, being quick to figure things out, realized she had gotten the job. It made me so happy to see the Lord providing for her needs and I look forward to hearing about the lives she changes.

2) Then I called a couple of supporters from my old church. They were so ecstatic to hear from me and we talked about what I have been up to and what they have been up to. Then they revealed to me how happy they were to hear from me through letters and e-mail. In fact, they appreciated it so much that they saved every letter and printed the pictures I would send in my e-mails and placed them all in a folder specially made for me and what God is doing through me!!! They kept telling me how much they appreciated hearing from me and how I have affected their lives. All I could say was thank you, Lord!

3) Finally I talked to a woman who I worked with in the Lions Club. She helped my club set up an art show for the blind called MindSight. Well she told me that God had been doing amazing things in her life and she is just finishing up building a house in the town of Alachua, which is near Gainesville. The conversation overall was so great and she made me want to be up in Gainesville so much faster to visit her and spend time relaxing in the farmlands!!!

Like I began in the first part, God has totally changed the way I view things. He has done it through people. I thrive off of relationships, whether deep or shallow. I love people...and God knows that.

Much love in the grace of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
