Vol. 1 Issue 5
Greetings Crossover Family,
The season of summertime has arrived, plans are being made to get out of town, the kids will be out of school for a few months, and you might finally get a little extra time on your hands to do what you love the most.
Every month that I write to Crossover I ask God simply one question: What is it that I should share this month? As I listen to God closely and think about all the relationships I share with many at Crossover Church, I suddenly come to realize what it is that I always hope to do and be, which is: to encourage.
For instance my life as a missionary started not too long ago and though I was nervous for quite some time God has shown me his blessings and He lets me know that I should not worry about life a single day. “Then Jesus said to his disciples: Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. 23 For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. 24 Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds!25 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? 26 Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest? Luke 12:22-26
As believers in Christ, it happens that we become guilty of doubting God or worrying more about our situations instead of worshiping and praying onto God more. No matter what trial or tribulations you face today, know that God is right there with you. God is good and He will never give you more than you can bear. Be strong and courageous (Joshua 1:9), Endure hardship as discipline (Hebrews 12:7), make the most of every opportunity (Ephesians 5:16), have an attitude just as Christ Jesus (Phillippians 2:5) and encourage one another daily (Hebrews 3:13).
I pray that you are being encouraged daily as well. The Christian Life is not a life that is supposed to be lived out alone. We all need and can use encouragement daily. Therefore I challenge you today to speak words of encouragement to that co-worker, to a significant other, a spouse, a child, a friend or brother or sister. Words can be so impactful and today I encourage you to be inspired to activate someone’s life.
