|Reminded of tea in Japan in January|
As my feelings of discouragement grow, I recall a phone call I received in February from a well known, author, preacher and teacher. His words ring in my ears this morning, "Do not give up Nancy. This takes time." I also recall my promise to another who was familiar with my preaching, teaching and writing. My promise; I will not stop. And most importantly of all, never allow anyone to tell you what you are not, and discourage you from moving forward with the dreams, the desires, the promises God places in your heart through the Holy Spirit,.
This mornings encouragement from the word comes from 1 Corinthians 12, 13, 14. God gives each one of us gifts to be used and each gift is given for a purpose.
