Sending Encouragement

Joy over at Joy in the Journey has asked us to send "a real, touchable, keepable, snail mail letter" of encouragement to a friend whose husband will be deployed to Iraq soon. Jennifer (aka Mississippi Girl) will be a single mom while her husband is away and could really use encouragement and lots of prayer during this difficult time. Please go read this post by Joy and consider encouraging a sister in the Lord.

I was praying for Jennifer this morning and asking God what verses I could use to lift her up. This is what came to my mind:

Hear my cry, O God;
listen to my prayer.
From the ends of the earth I call to you,

I call as my heart grows faint;
lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
For you have been my refuge,

a strong tower against the foe.
I long to dwell in your tent forever

and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.
~Psalm 61:1-4

Thank you, Lord, that your body of believers reaches around the world.

What a great verse and will surely be a great encouragment in the months to come!

Nice to see your faith shining through... I'd be interested to chat a little about Christianity and how you see and live it.

Dropping in from Mary's... drop me a quick email if you'd like to banter a bit about faith, religion and such.

Joy said...

Wow! Turtle guy wants to banter, sounds like fun!

Thanks for posting this about Jennifer...I hope that we can all encourage the sock off of her!!
