For the spirit God gave us does not make us timid but gives us power, love, and self-discipline.
I remember the small things. First, a testimony from Sunday's baptism service reminded me of this. How could I know that a minor, encouraging comment about a woman's tattoo, several months ago after a Sunday service, would be a major part of the chain reaction to change her life for Christ!? That's humbling, for her, and for me. Furthermore, the testimony reminds me that all kinds of people in all frames of mind and faith journeys attend our services. Praise God.
Minor breakthroughs on the homefront. The security guard and I are bonding. Alleluia! The beer turned him. Praise the Lord for He redeems and provides for the guard and me. I could share a beer with him and talk to him about it. Tonight I could ask him more -- he prefers the local brands -- and even extend my hand: he grabbed it and held it tightly. Wow! We will have more beer together, God willing.
