When one hears these words from one’s children, they are Golden and full of worth, it sends a warm feeling through one’s body
Confidence and strength are restored where there has been fatigue and discouragement.
Children are truly gifts from the Lord but often we forget what great things the most-High has done whenever we get lost on the highway of life’s sorrows and disappointments.
Yesterday the 10th of June 2009 I added another year unto my years; as always, I had moments of sober reflections, ‘what next’, I asked myself as my thoughts dwelt on the present events and situation that surrounds me as who I am at this very moment, I thought about the good , the bad and the sour.
I thought about how good and merciful the Lord has been all through the years even where I have not measured up to His standards He has remained who He is, doing always that which He alone can do.
Showing me every step of the way that I AM INDEED HIS BEST workmanship, a creation of His hands, which has value in His eyes and of much worth before Him.
It humbles me and I also feel good whenever I think along these lines, remembering Ephesians 2:10 -: we are His workmanship, created for good works in Christ.
Compliments are good and they go a long way to uplift a person’s spirit and general well-being.
A boss who never forgets to give compliments to his employee builds his work environment on the solid rock of willing and zealous workers, which eventually gives him an output beyond his own very expectations.
The pastor or elder who works with a humble and appreciative heart and a mouth full of blessings for his, team of ministers, church workers and even congregation never works alone in the church and is never weary as they always willingly and lovingly uplift such a one and the ministry in their prayers.
A colleague who never fails to encourage another with wisdom words will never lack a peaceful work environment and new friendships
The friend who always uplift another with words that are golden will get in return a rich and fulfilling relationship
The husband who is not too proud or lackadaisical in his responses to his wife, her needs and how much she affects his life will reap always good harvest in this wise; likewise the wife who knows how to build her home with wisdom words after the order of Abigail will never lack a peaceful and loving home.
The almighty is never too proud to give us compliments and words of encouragement,.......and he made us!
He reveals every step of the way, what He has deposited in us as works of His hands and how beautiful and wonderful he made us.
His reaction at the beginning of creation in Eden was, WHAT I HAVE MADE IS VERY BEAUTIFUL!
So believe me brother, do not doubt this sister, YOU ARE THE BEST!
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
