As a response to yesterday’s post (God in You), a generous wife named Bridget made this comment:
Thank you so much for this post. I have watched my husband get door after door closed in his face because he doesn’t look like what people want or because of his past. I was just beginning to wonder what’s the point in him going forward but then I got this email. My hope has been rekindled a little today because of this.
A few thoughts ~
People have great value.
Even though most folks may look at a person’s “cover” and dismiss them, there are still wise people who will take the time to “read the book” and find their value.
As people we need to appreciate our own value.
As wives we need to appreciate our husband’s value and become his biggest fan and greatest encourager.
I’m delighted that Bridget is in a better space to encourage and walk with her man.
The young man in the video would not have been on the stage at all if not for the encouragement and support of Charlotte. The world is richer for hearing her lovely voice (I may shoot Simon) and for her encouragement that allowed Jonathan to shine. I pray that both of their lives are changed for the good and that many others will learn from this lesson and be changed as well.
Prayer Request: please pray for Bridget’s husband who needs a job as a Worship Leader and, while we’re at it, pray for all the folks represented by this list who could use a new job or a different job. God cares about those kind of things. Really.
Don’t be afraid to be amazing. Andy Offutt Irwin (I know I just used this quote a few days ago, but I like it, so y’all get it again.)
