Because I love my online communities
and enjoy being a part of them….
Because I have several posts rattling around in my head
but am still processing….
Because I’m tired….
I’m going to just give a little update to the Reflecting Ups & Downs.
It started like this…
“Over 300 journals (& counting) downloaded!!
It ENDED like this:
- an encouraging email from someone who downloaded a free copy: ~~“BTW: I read your blog post about how hard it is to see so many free downloads taking place. I want to encourage you to trust that God will bless you. As folks see the cool stuff y’all have put together, they’ll want to get the rest of the series.”
- encouraging comments on the blog itself: ~~Dear friend,I too struggle with the very same issues of trust. What keeps me going is knowing that God always, always, always provides! Keep on leading the next generation to the word and you will see how God blesses you! And…don’t look at the numbers with dollar signs in your eyes, see with your heart the real numbers that are being led to the kingdom. You inspire me! God bless you! ~~Michelle, I pray that God blesses you richly, just as you are blessing others so much right now. You are making such a difference. Such. A. Difference. ~~we are called to be faithful and to return our eyes and heart focused only on Him. We aren’t called to be successful. ~~You are doing what is most needful, leading others to Christ. And He takes care of the rest. ~~You are blessing others! And you will be blessed. God knows in what way that will come. Love you, girl!
- And over 1600! downloads – with one actual purchase this week!
I’m still processing,
and appreciating all of you who encouraged me this past week!
I love how God uses His people so sweetly in my life!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!
