How To Increase


He who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.
Proverbs 11:25

When I read this scripture, it tells me there is a way to become refreshed and revitalized.
These our the days of anticipation!
What is coming!
Why is this happening?

How to be an overcomer and not just a survivor in your life.
To receive we must give.
To accumulate we must scatter.
To make ourselves happy, we must make others happy.
To become spiritually strong, we must seek spiritual good and growth for others.
Our real refreshment and strength come when we exercise the love and giftings
God has given each of us  for others (orphans, widows, the lonely).
The refreshing of others brings humility.Grace comes when we show grace.
Love comes when we show love.

Therefore, "give, and it will be given to you.
A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over"
Luke 6:38
We had a earthquake in our region the other day and a after shock at midnight last night.
Yet, we must not be shaken as the world is tossed to and fro.
Blessings, Roxy

Wow, was this good Rox. So well said, and I say Amen! I didn't feel the earth quake did you? Steve felt it last night... didn't know about earthquake prior to last night, and what he did feel, he didn't know it was an earthquake at the time, just thought he was just feeling weird, like his heart was pounding funny. I was too busy sleeping to notice, but he woke up and wondered what was happening. Any how girlfriend... got have that catch up chat. I want to hear about the retreat. If I have strength after I get done making dinner tonight, I'll give you a call, if not, it will have to be tomorrow... but I am hoping to catch up soon.
Love you lots,
Pam

Another one came to mind when I was thinking about the two of you. "As iron sharpens iron".
