Encouragement for Today~In today's world of swirling circumstances, we need to be reminded of how much we are loved by God.

A Glimpse


“One of the boys is calling!”

We yell at each other when this incredible event takes place…my husband and I…the mom and dad of the two adult sons.  And our nightly discussion always seems to include the fact that one of them called one of us.

The “boys” are grown men with jobs, wives and mortgages. But when they call, we get pretty excited. We love talking to them. We enjoy hearing what is going on in their lives. We just want to hear all about everything.

By the same measure, when I visit my mom she just wants to sit and talk. I could always find things to “do” in her house to help her, but when one of the three of her children comes over she wants us to just sit at the table and talk.

Could this be a bit of a glimpse of the way the Abba Father feels about us? I was always pretty well taught that prayer was a list of things to ask God for…you know, bless this and that. Protect this one and that one. Lord, could you please? You know, like a grocery shopping list.

But I mean look at Martha and Mary:

I am not trying to be irreverent, and I do believe it is okay to go to Abba Father with those needs. But I also believe He just wants us to spend time with Him. To talk to Him….to share with Him and listen….especially as we get ready to celebrate His birth.

Prayer is an invitation to be involved in the work He is doing, and an opportunity to spend time with our Abba Father, the one who loves us most. He is a personal God and I sometimes forget that…and that we are daughters and sons of the King.

So…..a glimpse?

I think so.

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 60 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer and author... who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 44 years, married almost 41 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. AND...we became grandparents to a beautiful baby girl in 2018!! We also have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. My heart's desire is to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, which seem endless right now in 2020, HE is present and loves us unconditionally. Thanks for reading. ~Be Encouraged Today~
