I’ve never been good at gratitude, but I’m learning. I find it’s one area the Lord will prompt me in if I’m staying connected, little thoughts to slow down and be grateful, and when I respond I find it not only does something for others, it does something for me—go figure! (something like “more blessed to give than receive?”)
I got a prompting today to thank Becky Laswell on this blog. I woke up one morning early summer realizing we needed a website to build online community for this experiment, but I had no one to own it. Becky has single-handedly designed, created the architecture, coded and made functional this website to serve our church and others doing this experiment together. God has given Becky an amazing mix of gifts, and I’m so grateful for her servant-hearted spirit and diligence to get this done to serve all of us doing this experiment. Yeah Becky!
If you haven’t done so, surf the site, because Becky has also created lots of amazing resources to support living out Jesus’ vision of a community growing together.
Ask the Lord if there’s someone you need to show gratitude toward today? If so, respond—for their sake, and for your sake.
