DAILY ENCOURAGEMENT MONDAY - AVAILABLE.

I used to ask God if He would come and help me. Then I asked if I could come and help Him. Finally I ended by asking God to do His own work through me. - J. Hudson Taylor.

Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good - Titus 3:1.

While waiting in a cemetery to conduct a funeral service, Charles Simeon walked among the graves, looking at the epitaphs. He found one that arrested him.

When from the dust of death I rise,
To claim my mansion in the skies,
E'en then shall this be all my plea
"Jesus hath lived and died for me."

He was so impressed with that gospel message that he looked for someone in the cemetery with whom he might share it. He saw a young woman, obviously distressed, and called her over to read the epitaph. He took her address and visited her the next day.

The home was a scene of poverty and squalor. The woman's old mother was dying of asthma, and two little children, very dirty, were trying to warm themselves by a small fire. Simeon prayed with the family, visited them again, and found assistance for them.

Later, the young woman told Simeon that she had been in the cemetery five hours and was contemplating suicide when he called her to read the epitaph. Because of his concern she trusted Christ and the family situation was changed. - W. Wiersbe.

Five Loaves and Two Fishes

God uses

what you have
to fill a need which
you never could have filled.

God uses
where you are
to take you where
you never could have gone.

God uses
what you can do
to accomplish what
you never could have done.

God uses
who you are
to let you become who
you never could have been.
- Philip Clarke Brewer


Loving Father, help me by the power of the Holy Spirit, to be available to you at all times, in every way, in every place, that I may share the love of Jesus with everyone I come in contact with, and to bring glory to your name. I ask this in the wonderful and mighty name of Jesus. Amen.

Be encouraged!
