Appreciation and Love

1 Thessalonians 5:12 And now, friends, we ask you to honor those leaders who work so hard for you, who have been given the responsibility of urging and guiding you along in your obedience. Overwhelm them with appreciation and love!

There is no greater joy than working in ministry with others and seeing the Lord do great things along the way. I am surrounded by incredible people that show compassion and love to others every day. During this month they have truly overwhelmed me with appreciation and love. They turn Pastor Appreciation into a month long celebration!

Today I smile once again as I pray for each of them and thank the Lord for sending these amazing people into my life. I ask the Lord to Help me to never take for granted those that honor God with their time, their abilities and their resources. And I thank Him for using them to urge me on and keep me on the right track! It truly does take TEAMwork to make this DREAM work!

I bless all of you today in the name of the Lord. I honor each of you for your diligence and commitment to sharing the love of God daily and urging others along on their journey with Christ. May your "cup" be running over and His mercy and grace always abound in you!
