Come And See...Our Daily Bread





Have you ever heard the expression..."Actions speak louder than words?"
I think we can talk until we are blue in the face when we are trying to lead someone to the Lord...but unless our actions line up with our words, people are not going to be interested in what we are saying.

And if we are not excited about our own Spiritual journey, then why in the world would anyone want what we have?

Today in the devotional Our Daily Bread... it just remined me that it is better to walk alongside someone and show them the way to the Lord, instead of just telling them about Him.

I truly have a desire to help people find Jesus...and I know His Word is necessary...but I just think they won't even want to listen to the talk if we are not walking the walk. And they also will be more apt to listen if we learn how to speak the truth in love!

SPEAK THE TRUTH IN LOVE

Ephesians 4:15 NLT

..."We will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church".


This devotional blessed me and refreshed me...and I hope it will do the same for you!

Also...will you please be in prayer today for my grandson William? He will be 16 in 3 months and he got into some trouble last summer with some of his friends doing pranks, and has a court interview tomorrow morning (WEDNESDAY)...and then he will go back in June to hear what they decide. Please pray for my daughter as she goes with him. Please pray for grace...and for God's will to be done. And please pray for grandma too...that I can trust in God and rest in Him....cuz I love my boy so much! Thank you.



Prayer changes things!

I really enjoyed your quote "Show me some love~~Become a follower~~No fun to write if nobody is reading" so I added you to my follow list instead of just being bookmarked! :)

Thanks for the reminder that we may be the only Bible other people read. My mission field is age 12 and under, the ones given to me by birth, and I am needing to be constantly reminded that more is "caught than taught!"

Blessings!

Oh, I also meant to say I will pray for your daughter, grandson and for your grand- "mother's heart!"

Love you, sweet Linda, and am praying for you all today. I, too, will be in a much more serious courtroom today with my son-in-love and daughter and need many prayers for the judge who will be presiding. Today determines a lot, so please add us to your prayer list.

Much love!

Dearest Linda,
May God comfort you all, especially Grandma Linda.

It seems life gets difficult at times and the only thing I can honestly do is pray and trust and do my very best to rest in God.

I'm not a good student at times and I have to remind myself.

Will be praying for William, Daughter and you.
Please let me know how things go.

Beautiful Linda. Thank you for sharing. I heard it said that our children will never be more spiritual than we are... This one thing keeps me on my knees.

Love to you. Thank you for your sweet comment about my Mr. AGPMan going to school.
