The work here is a huge blessing, but sometimes little things stand out to me and I am encouraged by them. Saturday was youth service. We had a great time together. We did four weeks of games, bible trivia, verse search, etc. Yesterday was the last day and the day to give out the prizes. One of the things that encouraged me was a young lady that memorized 30 verses. She quoted all the verses in front of everyone. She also memorized all the books of the Bible. Simple task but a huge accomplishment. There were others that memorized verses and the books of the Bible, which just put the cherry on top for me.
The other awesome moment for me was this morning in service. A man in the church brought his offering in a peculiar way. He grows vegetables so an offering he brought a bag full of vegetables and placed it on stage. He was giving the first fruits of his labor.
We all have something to give. We just need to make it available for God.
