We are so excited when we listen to that still small voice of God and then afterwards get confirmation that yes we indeed did hear correctly and our obedience blessed others!
Our family prays that we would hear God's leading in all circumstances, not so that we can play God but so that we can be a useful tool in our redeemers hand.
1 Timothy 6:17-18 Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty,nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy. Let them do good, that they may be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share,
We were at a party and one of us looked down and realised a friends sandals were very tired and worn. Brian had just found new sandals and we realised we were in the perfect situation to share our shoes...Our friend was very blessed and one of us went home barefoot that day! Our friend let us know that when they left the tribe they could not find their sandals so had to resort to the pair that was falling apart and hoped the sandals would stay together until they reached a place they could replace them! Our hearts were so full knowing we had been used to encourage a friend that had a need we could help fill!
Another sharing instance this week happened when we felt led to sort through the boys cloths, counting out what we needed in a weeks time and give the rest away! As we gave a friend the boys extra's cloths she said to us...This is so amazing, just this morning my sons came to me and said they needed new shorts for school. I told them we had no money but we would pray and watch God provide for our needs! That was the same day God promted our family to share our boys cloths with them.
We may not be rich in the eyes of America but in the eyes of those in PNG we are very rich! We are thankful to be in a place where we can share our riches and share God's Love as He provides for the needs of so many around us! We pray that we bring God Glory when we are obedient and open to His leading1 Please pray for our family that we would continue to be open to His leading and bless the people He places in our lives!
