A teacup ministry

I was thinking, today, on how the Lord is so kind. How He does things that He says He will do.

Two ladies came into our shop today, browsing. Our conversation subject went to shop ministry as we are non profit, and one of the ladies was sharing with me that her family was part of a work to orphans, also.

And the other lady confided in me that her ministry was buying teacups and putting in a hankie and a verse, and giving them to those she felt led to do so. She was so delighted as she related this huge amount of pretty things she found for her Teacup ministry.

When I heard her speaking of that, it made my heart glad as I remembered through the
years how the Lord blesses the work and brings increase to ministry. Whatever we were doing, the Lord always brings increase to the work.
Always.

And I was delighted with her and could say, that was the Lord!

Bringing provision for your ministry, and shining on your ministry.

Bringing the things needed. As we outreach, increase coming from Him.

Because I knew that is how the Lord does.

When you work and do something as an outreach, because you want to serve Jesus in it, He blesses it, brings increase, He provides.

It has always been to see this is so. He says it is so in the Bible Scriptures.

He gives seed to the sower. He increases us. He brings inheritance. He blesses the work of our hands.

Do not grow weary in well doing, for you shall reap if you faint not.

When we did a small Christian Calendar, the Lord brought us help and free printing. Years ago.

It didn't start out with free printing but the Lord brought it. He blessed it. He provided the need, divinely.

When giving to ministries passing through town, and just wanting something to give to them, the Lord always brought a house to clean for the amount I wanted to give. Always, I saw this happen. And He increased this also, in time, even to increasing my desire and prayer to give more, He Himself increased. It was clearly Him. Even my asking and the Lord bringing the answer, everything came from Him.

When needing product for outreach, the Lord brought it to full and overflowing.

An entire room packed with what was needed and I have been working out of it for two years now. Our Lord's provision. So awesome.

That is our Lord and His promises are true. We do the outreaching, but the Lord brings the increase.

We can be encouraged that the Lord brings a increase for our work, blesses the work of our hands, helps us always.

God is so Faithful. He is so Kind. It is a delight all the time to see Him in our lives.

I looked briefly at the computer news when coming online tonight.

I felt so sad for the world and the things that the world has offered to it. They truly are offered only husks to eat. It made me sad. All that the world has offered, to eat, was a fantasy of reality, given to it to lull it's senses by a hard taskmaster, nothing of substance in it, something that would put one to sleep, as the cocoa and sweets offered to the child by the witch in the Narnia movie, it put him to sleep and made him drowsy to what was real.

That is what the world is offered, and if I looked at it very long I would start to be dulled in my senses and become sleepy, too, and if my food were that, it is husks.

Life with the Lord is full. Life with our Lord Jesus is Wonderful. It so exciting. So alive.

I pray the Lord open doors to share Jesus with the people as they are hungry for our dear Lord.
He offers good food, pure water, and a joyful life.

Do not grow weary in well doing, for you shall reap if you faint not.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
