A Simple Life, a Childlike Faith


Sealing Trust

posted by Linda G. Howard

Today, I went  to the local Wal-Mart.  My shirt was dirty and my pants were not a comfortable fit.  But, I reasoned to myself, I never see anyone that I know there.

My assumption was wrong.  As I was struggling to get my cart out the front door, I backed into a young man.  He is person with whom I’ve been sharing the love of Jesus each week for several months.  He smiled and waved at me.

Knowing that he was a friend, I could not get my brain to focus on anything but the faulty cart.  He moved away, sensing that I didn’t recognize him.  I knew that I knew him from somewhere but where?  Suddenly, I remembered.

I called him back.  He was genuinely pleased that I knew who he was and he hugged me.  We laughed at my bad memory and my crippled cart.  Then he went into the store and I headed for my car. I knew that God had given me a miracle encounter.  A chance meeting at the store and my recognition of him away from his work had sealed our friendship.

Trusting the Lord always insures our success.  Even though, others may not see or know what God is doing for us.  By recognizing and acknowledging God’s hand in our lives, God has the ability to turn even chance encounter into a blessing.

Friendship Evangelism
For many years, I taught a seminar called "Friendship Evangelism."  The basis of this teaching was that people are much more susceptible to hear the promises of the Gospel, if they know and respect you.  We all have a knowledge of the friendship of David and Jonathan from the Bible.  Even if we o

Overcoming Fatigue
After four days of Camp Agape, my children laugh that I'm in my Camp Coma for about a week.  While it's humorous there is a lot of truth in their designation of my abilities.  There are some things that I've learned from others and from my own experiences regarding physical fatigue. First, this

Explaining grace
In the past weeks, I've been going over some of the key words in our covenant relationship with God.  Perhaps one of the most important words we use is grace. Most of us have learned and maybe we even remember God's Riches At Christ's Expense This is great explanation of grace and

Familiar customs and limited means
When the Biblical young woman, Ruth, married into a Jewish family she understood little about their ways, God or religion.  This is my supposition; but I base the conjecture on facts.  Moabites were shunned by the Israelis.  Decades before, Moab wronged the wandering tribes who desired to trav
