A time to give and receive
Let’s take a moment to discuss the life lesson regarding giving and receiving. I honestly know and have experienced God’s faithful hand in many ways! There were times that I can remember when I was the one in need and had to learn how to receive. Oh my, that season was so incredibly humbling yet rewarding all at the same time. My faith stretched so much, that I experienced another level of miracles that I just will not forget. There were individuals not aware of what my family and I were facing and just because (God prompting them) blessed us; whether it was food, clothing, toiletries, cash to pay bills, etc. It is something you cannot put into words because you know that you were NOT looking or depending upon anyone or anything else BUT God!!!
The rewards to all of this are when you can do the same for others. Not for the praise of man but secretly in obedience to God. You are able to do to others just as others did for you! You see before walking through this level of testing, it was already a great joy to be a blessing in secret but it just caused me to see even deeper the other side of being in need.
I believe it’s important that we keep ourselves tender-hearted with a capacity to be ever-learning. As much as we may believe we know or understand, we can always learn more. I believe these lessons are for our good. An ability to give and be stretched in faith can always and only do in us what we could not have genuinely done for ourselves. So the next time you find yourself at a place of testing and season of learning more; submit yourself to God quickly and humbly. Allow these lessons in life to bring you up higher and enable you to encourage others sincerely without contradiction. Remain teachable and tender-hearted. Soon enough you come out of the season and are now ready to reciprocate all that you received!
