Dear Sweet friends,
I have been reading Holley Gerths book:
If We Could Have Coffee… 30 days of Heart to Heart Encouragement.
If you haven’t read Holley…you must download immediately!
She is a woman of faith you search for
when you need comforting words.
I realized after reading her two days ago that I wanted to be an encourager to my girlfriends.
I immediately texted them and asked them over for coffee,
scripture and to come in their sweats!
I was astounded that almost all of them came.
In fact, it made me nervous because I truly
didn’t know what I was going to talk about…
just that I needed them to know how
much their encouraging hearts meant to me and
how much they are loved by God.
If you have ever thought to connect with other women of faith but scared to do it…
my advice is to just do it!
Set out a pot of coffee and call your girlfriends….don’t
worry about how the house looks or if you have time….
Make time for your soul!
Be strong and courageous.
Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged,
for the Lord your God will
be with you wherever you go.
We simply talked about this bible verse and life!
We all had something on our hearts today and needed
encouragement from each other.
We just needed a comforting safe place to share our fears, struggles, insights and laughter.
A song by Hillsong United, called: Oceans, is such a beautiful reminder that He is in control
and that if we trust His love and follow, we will find beauty.
Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders.
Let me walk upon the waters wherever You would call me.
Take me deeper than feet could ever wander
and my faith will be made stronger
in the presence of my Savior…..
Before I go, I would like to share some photos of our gathering:
By the way, all of the food items you see were purchased from a store!
You do not have to bake or spend a lot of time in the kitchen,
just showing your hospitality is LOVE!
Before our sweet time ended, we wrote a letter of encouragement
to a friend and added the above bible verse.
I encourage you to go out and SHINE!
