A special “welcome” to those of you who found your way here through my Encouragement for Today devotion. I hope Steven’s story touched your heart. I know if it weren’t for the power of encouragement from God’s Words to me and His love expressed through people, I wouldn’t be who I am today.
I also know how hard it is when you don’t have the gift of someone encouraging you not to give up. I have been in that longing and lonely place, too. But one day God challenged me to become for someone else what I wish I had for myself, and it changed me forever.
I pray that my blog will be a source of encouragement for you today! First, I’d like to share with you the story of sacrificial love expressed by a mother named Hagere who chose life for her baby girl. A baby she named Aster who God called our family to adopt a month ago from Ethiopia.
Hagere’s story is reshaping me as a woman, wife and mom as I have seen the sacrificial love of my Savior through her. I posted the story here. I’m praying that each of you who stops by my little corner of the world will read it and hear words of encouragement spoken from your Father’s heart bringing hope and courage to yours.
Blessings and prayers of encouragement for you today!
