This whole month I have been pondering how deeply we are hungering for GOOD NEWS as God’s people living in the world.  How much more is the world going to hunger for the same!  I can remember as a kid going to a movie or hearing a story that made my heart so tender with tears because of the graciousness of people and the kindness of how people treated one another, especially those in need.  Nowadays the media and entertainment is so full of bad news and bad relationships that we are becoming famished for simple goodness. 


Recently I read the following testimony from one of our QW Class members, it brought tears to my eyes.  What she wrote was the Word of her testimony.  She cooked some chicken wings and brought them over to her neighbor and through that act of kindness, it opened the door to share her neighbor’s burdens and nurture her in the Lord.


It reminded me of this scripture:


2 Cor 1:3-4  NLT
He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When others are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.



Hi Sandy
There have been times like I could actually feel what a person is going thru.. Back in Oct. this young girl moved in next door to me and at first she was like she was afraid of me.. she has been hurt so much by other people.. the Lord showed me some things and how I got started talking to her was I cooked some fried chicken wings and took her over a plate of them then the next day she came and talked to me and the Lord showed me how she had always been pushed back and always had to settle for second best and I began to talk to her and show her love and most of all shared the love the Lord has for her.

She is so hungry now for the things of the Lord. I do things for her and tell her that God has such great things for her. She loves flowers and she had a gardenia bush she has had for several years but never bloomed. She planted it in her front yard and now it is covered with gardenia's. The Lord said He planted her next to me so she could be showed His love and now she is beginning to bloom. She is so precious and just about every day she comes and says, “Look what the Lord showed me!”

All I know is He just about always uses me with taking someone something to eat or a cake or something like that.....then He shows me or I feel what they are going through and He does the rest....I get so blessed when the Lord blesses someone else.


Gal 6:10 NKJV
Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.


As a culture, we have forgotten what it was like to listen to a story of how one act of kindness makes a difference in another's life.  We NEED the Word of our testimonies to start pouring forth upon the earth.  When we add a deed (like chicken wings) to back up our faith (in sharing with your neighbor) it empowers the angels to go.  Faith without works is dead.   It is a living testimony in action.


 Rev 12:11 NKJV
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.


When the Lord called me, He said I would be His witness of what I had seen and heard from Him. 


Acts 1:8 NKJV

But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." 


Acts 26:16-17

I  have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you.


When we read those verses we think, "Oh I am going to zoom up to the throne room, see Jesus and then travel all around the world and tell people."  And yet all I do is keep track of the times the Lord speaks to me in special ways, then type it and click one button.  It is His living power that travels with our testimonies to changes lives.  


Acts 1:8 AMP
But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends (the very bounds) of the earth.


The Word of our testimony is simply sharing God’s goodness.  It is a weapon of how God has encompassed our lives.


I will post this Word to Ponder again, I think it is relevant.  From over 1,200 Words to Ponder the Lord has given me, I think this one is my very favorite.


WHOM DO YOU SAY I AM?  7/23/07

When I labored and created the earth, I looked over everything that I made and saw that it was very GOOD.  I also gave gifts of creativity so that mankind could understand that what is created comes out of the heart of the person creating. The creation is a message that in someway represents the person behind it. What I created was GOOD, because I AM GOOD. 


Live in such a way that men will see your GOOD works and glorify Me, for a GOOD man will bring forth GOOD things from the GOOD treasure stored in his heart.  When I walked the earth, I went about doing GOOD and healing all who were oppressed by the devil.  I give GOOD gifts to My children and I do not change; I AM GOOD.  Every GOOD and perfect gift comes from Me.  I AM and always will be, the GOOD Shepherd.


Remove your focus off the devil.  Overcome evil with GOOD.  Abhor evil and cling to GOOD.  Never repay evil with evil.  But instead pursue GOOD.  If you want to see GOOD days, refrain from speaking evil.  Turn away from evil and do GOOD.  Beloved, all in the world is very simple.  You have only 2 choices, GOOD or evil, coming from the kingdoms of light or darkness.  You need to make your choice and stick to it until the end, knowing Who I AM and Who keeps you.  Separate and discern what you are listening to.  You need to separate the mixture and choose the GOOD part.  A GOOD report makes My body healthy for I know the plans I have for you, to give you a future and a hope.


Ex 33:12,13,18,19, 34:5-7 NKJV

Then Moses said to the LORD, "See, You say to me, 'Bring up this people.' But You have not let me know whom You will send with me. Yet You have said, 'I know you by name, and you have also found grace in My sight.' 13 Now therefore, I pray, if I have found grace in Your sight, show me now Your way, that I may know You and that I may find grace in Your sight... 18 And he said, "Please, show me Your glory." 19 Then He said, "I will make all My GOODness pass before you, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before you. ... 34:5 Now the LORD descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD. 6 And the LORD passed before him and proclaimed, "The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in GOODness and truth, 7 keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children's children to the third and the fourth generation."
