Fresh Manna

1 Sam 30.6 (Message)"David strengthened himself with trust in his God"

Way back, a very long time ago, Dave and I had a vision. We saw that people were in need of encouragement, we needed encouragement and we wanted to help. We thought up the term "Encouragement cards", a post card that could convey a word , a thought. We could never really come up with a good way to do it. But I think the Lord has given us the way to do it. My ATC's (artist trading cards)! Small, pocket size.
All it takes is a word, to change a mind, change a life. I am going to do my best to bless as many people as I can, by combining Fresh Manna, confessions, art and love. I want to make it fun and interesting.
It doesn't stop there though, as it says in the verse, you have to encourage yourself. David was in a hard place. He had been attacked and his family taken prisoner. His home and the homes of his men, were destroyed. His men were ready to kill him. What did he do? He trusted God.
Trust God, He will not fail you!

Scottie

Hey
I wanted you to know Scottie was back in the hospital and out again. He had to start kidney dialysis yesterday. His kidneys aren't doing so well. He hasn't really felt good since he had pneumonia awhile ago, and it may not have been pneumonia at all. What I believe is that he will come through this. He is one amazing guy, so strong. The Lord gave me Romans 4. 17-18 (Message)

We call Abraham "father" not because he got God's attention by living like a saint, but because God made something out of Abraham when he was a nobody. Isn't that what we've always read in Scripture, God saying to Abraham, "I set you up as father of many peoples"? Abraham was first named "father" and then became a father because he dared to trust God to do what only God could do: raise the dead to life, with a word make something out of nothing. When everything was hopeless, Abraham believed anyway, deciding to live not on the basis of what he saw he couldn't do but on what God said he would do. And so he was made father of a multitude of peoples. God himself said to him, "You're going to have a big family, Abraham!"

Isn't that good? I've decided to believe, not looking at what I see. God Is so good. More later...
