Day 28 - Gentle Reminders

Last night, I was locking up the church after a particularly trying day when I found a prayer card on the back table of the chapel that said, “I give thanks to Christ Jesus our Lord, because he has counted me trustworthy in making me his minister (1 Timothy 1:12).”  As hard as my days may get in ministry, and there are hard ones, I have to always give thanks because the Lord has chosen me for this great life.    No matter how we spend our days, the Lord always gives us gentle reminders that he is with us during tough times or rough days.  Whether it’s a smile from a friend, a call from a loved one, or even a prayer card in the back of a chapel, the Lord will always find a way to tell us how much he loves us.
