Fave Scripture – Isaiah 55:11

It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it. (New Living Translation)
As a Christ follower for most of my life, I have often wondered if I’ve made a difference in someone’s life.  In my 39 years of living on this earth, I can’t even remember the amount of times I’ve shared the love of God through the Bible in hopes that someone might accept Jesus and come to know him and love him and serve him. You can imagine how freeing it is to me to know that God has addressed this in His Word. So, when I’ve shared the gospel and the person looks at me like I’m crazy, I will believe that “it will always produce fruit” and when I’ve offered the hope of God to a wounded individual and they don’t heed my words, I will trust that “it will accomplish all God wants it to.” Have hope, my fellow Christ followers.  Our job is to share Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives. God’s work is to do the rest.

  1. Amen Cindy. I strive to live by this verse as well. It’s very powerful.

    Thank You Father God for using Cindy in a way to reach out to those who need Your word. In Jesus’ name, amen.

  2. The timing of this was perfect for me, Cindy. Your words speak such truth. I just met a colleague for coffee today, and although I did not plan to witness to her, the opportunity presented itself and I shared with her about my faith journey and my stand for my marriage despite my divorce. She is not a believer, but has wondered about her purpose in life. Mom was Catholic, dad was Muslim, and she does not seem to have a faith identity other than anti-Catholic. She was so appreciative of my sharing, and indicated that it was very inspiring. Now I just have to trust God and pray that the seeds I scattered today will take root at some point.

    But God was not content with this being a one-way exchange, and blessed me with my colleague’s words as well. After I shared my hope of marriage restoration, she proceeded to tell me about a couple she knew from college. The wife entered into adultery and divorced her husband. He forgave her and continued to love her unconditionally despite the circumstances. Several years later, they remarried and after much hard work are now happier than ever. Leave it to God to use a non-believer to strengthen my hope. Praise Him!
