Hello 2014!

One year ago today I posted my very first message on Wordscroll.

From that very first post, birthed out of obedience to God’s call on my heart, Wordscroll and all its wonderful readers has been an incredible blessing to me. So far 52 countries have been represented by visitors to this blog. And now I realize that, by the wonders of technology, I am enabled to ‘go ye into all the world and preach the gospel’. What an incredible and exciting time we live in. A time we can’t afford to waste!

“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to the whole creation.” Mark 16:15

Every Christian believer has a calling on their heart from the Lord and the gifting to fulfill that call.

“Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them–” Romans 12:6a

I urge one and all to step out in faith to answer God’s prompting. Do you sense the urgency in the air? There is so much to be done and all are needed to do their part. If you simply take the first step, you will see the next and the Lord will meet your every need–just take that step.

“I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power in us who believe, according to the working of his great might–” Ephesians 1:16-19

Happy New Year Everyone!

I am so thankful, and I look forward to another great year of service to you, and to our King!

 

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello Blog family, this is my 200th post on Wordscroll!

This blog began on January 1, 2013, in obedience to God’s call on my heart. The Lord speaks the messages to my heart, His special gift for you of fresh bread, to encourage, build up, stir your spirit, motivate and yes sometimes correct those who have ears to hear.

My role is not always easy for, to whom much is given, much is required. I spend countless hours ‘listening’ to the Lord, and reading the Word and as, I too, am receiving the messages, I spend the rest of my hours putting into practice what I hear. The key word is practice, because it isn’t easy changing and sometimes, undoing, a lifetime of ingrained habits, along with developing new. But the Lord is so gracious and encouraging, enabling this to be a major year of joy and growth for me; as well as a tremendous blessing!

This Thanksgiving, I am so very thankful to the Lord Jesus who trusts me to speak His heart; I love you with all my heart, soul, mind and body! Thankful for my loving husband who gives up so much time with me, so that I can answer the call on my heart. Thank you to my wonderful family and friends, as well as teachers and mentors along my path; you have all helped me so much!

My dear blog family of faithful readers, I haven’t forgotten you!  I am ever so grateful for all your encouragement, kind words and the time you spend reading the posts; allowing me to flood your mailbox for the first five months of daily postings.

To one and all a sincere thank you! May you all be very blessed this Thanksgiving and always. Enjoy your family time and for those who are not able to be with family, remember that we are all your family and we love you!

Thank you all very much for visiting and reading Wordscroll.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone, may you be BLESSED!
