    For there is no distinction, for all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God; being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. Romans 3:22 WEBIt is so easy for us to become used to having positions, titles, and levels in the workplace during our life and th...

    Walking on Water from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the importance of believing the Lord, of shaking off the naysayers and continuing on your own journey.

    Out of that terrible travail of soul, he'll see that it's worth it and be glad he did it. Through what he experienced, my righteous one, my servant, will make many 'righteous ones,' as he himself carries the burden of their sins. Therefore I'll reward him extravagantly' the best of everything, the ...

A Christmas Story

  • Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you. Luke 6:38 ESV

    As Christmas approached, we felt like doing something special. Looking back, I am sure that it was the Holy Spirit prompting us because He wanted to bless us, and needed a reason. We needed to be givers for what was soon coming.

    We owned a small computer business and it was really slow that year. We had a lot of spare parts and time, but very little money. So we came up with this idea that we would take all the spare parts that we could muster and build them into working computers. We then planned to find some widows without one and bless them. So we did just that.

    We made a few people happy and everyone had a great Christmas. Then in January a client contacted us and gave us over $10,000 of new computer equipment. We got things that we would not have dreamed of buying. If you get the urge to bless someone, go with it. It is probably the Holy Spirit prompting you so He can in return bless you with something.

    God could bless you anyway, but He did say give and it will be given to you. I didn't write it, I read it. The reverse could read: 'Don't give and it will not be given to you.' Sowing and reaping works just as surely as farmers plant and then harvest. If you don't plant something, the only things that reliably come up are the weeds.

    Prayer: Father, show me the opportunities in my life to plant a seed. Guide me and give me wisdom in my giving, in the name of Jesus.

    Note: Merry Christmas!!! Thank you all so much for being part of our RHM community. We wish and pray for each of you to have a peaceful and joyous Christmas, and an amazingly blessed 2017! Much love, Dion & Sylvia
