more of Him

Welcome to MORE OF HIM Monday

You can encourage others or you may be encouraged by sharing part of your spiritual journey. If you post today under one of the following themes, please leave a link to your post on the Mr. Linky below.

Share a specific piece of scripture that has spoken to your this last week. Share what you feel God is telling you through that passage and how you plan to apply it to your life.
- or -


Share how God is working in your life right now. Is He telling you something or helping you through something? Do you hear His small, quiet voice? Or is He hitting you over the head with a two by four? Are you on a spiritual high? Or low? Share as you are led.

Scripture speaks to me...

And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. As the Scriptures say,
“They share freely and give generously to the poor. Their good deeds will be remembered forever.” [Psalm 112:9]
For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you. Yes, you will be enriched in every way so that you can always be generous. And when we take your gifts to those who need them, they will thank God.
2 Corinthians 9:8-11 New Living Translation

Isn't God's wisdom and His plans amazing? I read and reread this piece of scripture in amazement. Not only does He pour His blessings on us, but He gives us even more so that we can in turn give to others. And then they will thank God for their blessings.

I know I don't need to remind anyone of this. We all know that we have so much to be thankful for. I've enjoyed coming home from vacation and reading so many posts on what bloggers are thankful for. When we have an attitude of gratitude, it changes our perspective on any given situation - and we then realize we have an attitude of sharing with others. And it's all part of God's plan. I'm sure He is smiling down on us all.

What a beautiful passage. Our God gives so lavishly to us and we should freely give as well.

Heather said...

I couldn't decide if my post today was Him in my Life or Scripture Speaks - it's a little of both! God is so good!

Isn't scripture wonderful in the way that it can speak to us at any age, any circumstance in our life. Every time we re-read a passage it can become alive all over again to us. Or, it can speak to so loudly that you just know for sure that God reads your mind and heart. Your remarks on the scripture blessed be.

blessed be

I am so glad that you posted this verse.

Sunday I posted Romans 8:31...It is my daily cheerleading cheer.

But the double rainbow, spoke to me too. Bill and I are studying Genesis, and the symbol of the rainbow is such an incredible connection. Every time we see this, God has his promise wrapped in it.

Loved your love is....thanks for joining in.
