Affirmation!!

I just needed to post the little blessing I received today! Lately (again) I have been feeling unsettled about my work! Getting frustrated at my lack of ability to do the things I feel God wants me to do! Not feeling up to the task, etc... etc...! (You know the drill). Anyway today I get home and in my mailbox is a card that said the following:

Kim,
Thank you for all the heart you put into Children's Ministries.
I have loved getting to know you. I really appreciate your open heart & the love you have for sharing God's word.
I pray today you feel a special touch from the Holy Spirit. I pray that He affirms your calling and strengthens your resolve. I pray that your fountain overflows with his blessings!
Wow! Isn't God amazing! I don't need the praise and thanks for what I do, I just want to please Him, but OH my goodness! I have been praying today that he would show me that (again) I am where he wants me to be! Boy I love how he works!
Just thought I'd share my blessing with you!
Colossians 3:23-24
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, 24since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
Ephesians 6:6-8
6Obey them not only to win their favor when their eye is on you, but like slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from your heart. 7Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men, 8because you know that the Lord will reward everyone for whatever good he does, whether he is slave or free.

You know - the Lord always 'shows' up when we need His affirmation. He uses willing hearts to encourage you. What a great blessing indeed.

Don't you love how GOD sends someone just when you need them MOST? I LOVE it!

You're package was BEAUTIFUL too! (Also LOVED the roses) Wow, one blessing right after another...
=-)

Hang in there, my sister! GOD will show you HIS will... the "be still and KNOW I am GOD" is sometimes the hard part. I'm thankful you've got friends to help remind you that you're 'on track.'

LOVE YOU!

What a sweet story. I aspire to send cards like that when the Lord puts it on my heart, because I know how much it blesses people.
We all need to recieve love from our sisters in the Lord! Praise the Lord for hearing us when we call! And for faithful responders.
