What a surprise. I was recently awarded the ABC Award. This particular award recognizes the many blogs who create a positive atmosphere in their content. It is named this because one of the requirements is to alphabetically name those positive things/people/thoughts etc. that define one as a person. As I thought about it I decided to use some of my favorite hymns to honor the One Defining Person in my life. (Posted in a previous blog.) It has been my desire and mission to follow Matthew 28:19-20. To go and teach. If in that mission I reach just one through my blog or my teaching or my life then I have honored my Jesus and that is what really matters.
The other requirement is to pass the award forward. These are blogs that inspire me and keep me aware of the many around the world who are “not ashamed of the gospel”. I grow from them and am blessed by them.
What a difference you have made for me. Pass it on.
As I lift this prayer in the Name of Jesus I give you praise for the many people You have placed in my path to remind me of who You are and of Whose I am. I ask You to bless them and enlarge all our territories for You. Amen and Make It So!
