This is what I, the LORD, have to say:

Preach My Word.
Be prepared.
Patiently correct and encourage people with good teaching.

Keep a clear head in every situation.

Don't be afraid of suffering for My sake.
Work at telling others the Good News.
Fully carry out the ministry I have given you.

Each day proclaim My Salvation.
Publish My glorious deeds.
Tell everyone about the amazing things I do.

Recognize that I am glorious and strong.
Worship Me in all My Holy Splendor.
Come to Me with praise and thanksgiving.

Fight the good fight, run your race, and remain faithful.

I will reward you with a Crown of Righteousness.
I will bring you safely into My Heavenly Kingdom!

For I am a great God.
Who is like Me, and who can challenge Me?
Listen to My!

For you are the people I watch over - the flock under My care!

I am the Rock of your Salvation!

Love you all,

(Taken from Jeremiah 49, Psalm 95 & 96, and 2 Timothy 4)

  1. encouraging words, thank you Sharon. God Bless - Nita

  2. Thank you Sharon for proclaiming His words
    of life and truth!

  3. Hi Sharon -

    Yes indeed this is the Lord speaking. Clearly it is HIM!

    Thank you, Sharon, for sharing this.

    Sidebar: I heard a testimony this morning where a man who grew up in Christian home, went wayward...the Lord spoke to him one day and told him, "If you don't come to me today, I will NOT be back this way." The Lord warned him that He would no longer draw him with His Spirit. The man obeyed GOD and now is a minister....

  4. I love how you do these Sharon!! they are always so awesome on how you expound from the Lord's word his promises, blessings, protection, etc :)


  5. I love it when you do this. You know, I think it would be a WONDERFUL retreat activity to write out what God says using his word the way you do.

    Hmm. Wonder if I have time to fit it in this weekend.

  6. You always have such encouraging words to share with us. Glad I stopped by for a visit.

  7. Amen! This owner's manual is one we never should misplace...

    Thank you for the sweet comment on my blog....

  8. I like that He is my rock and my salvation! Good to know! Sandie

  9. Katie - YOU BET! God is good!

    Nita - Glad that God encouraged you today!

    Sandy - Life and truth, indeed! God's Word still reigns!

    Sandra - I read these Scriptures, and I just HEAR Him speak! Loved your comment in the "sidebar." I love that God spoke, and that that young man LISTENED! And how He blessed the return of the prodigal!!

    Betty - I'm so glad you like these! I have fun writing them - because I can just hear God speaking as I write! It's so exciting...

    Debbie - So much of God's Word just seems to tumble out like a letter. Written just for us - each word. You know - that's a great idea about using this as a retreat activity - it could even work in a class or Bible Study. Have to keep that in mind. (I sent you a short email - long one to follow soon - but is your retreat THIS weekend?!)

    Denise - Oh, thank you, my friend. It always makes me smile a little bigger when you stop by! Glad God spoke His encouraging words to you today!

    Karen - And it's an owner's manual that we should actually READ - unlike the one sitting in my glove compartment!! I continue to think of you in your difficult time...

    Sandie - I love ALL of God's "titles" - but knowing what you know about how I love rocks - ROCK OF MY SALVATION is one of the best!!

    GOD BLESS, dear ones...


"So [I] have been greatly encouraged in the midst of [my] troubles and suffering, dear brothers and sisters, because you have remained strong in your faith. It gives [me] new life to know that you are standing firm in the Lord. How [I] thank God for you!" (1 Thessalonians 3:7-9)

Thanks for your comments - it is such a joy to be sharing my journey with friends like YOU!
