During 2013 I’ve received several amazing emails of encouragement and affirmation from friends, family members, teammates and others. Two messages in particular, one from our senior pastor and one from a key volunteer, were especially meaningful. They were not only encouraging, but affirming of specific areas that I am passionate about and have demonstrated great strength in.
Though encouraging notes don’t find their way to me often, when I do receive them I put them where I can see them; Where I can be reminded that the work I do matters. They remind me to recognize that the impact God has in my life is impacting the lives of others. These notes affirm that I am leaning into God’s will for my life.
