Terri Shares about her Assignment from God to Encourage:
What is the scripture that most defines who God has called me to be? For me, it is, If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly. Romans 12:8
I am clear that I have been called to Encourage. What do I say after all that I have been allowed to endure in my life? BUT GOD!!!!! John 11:40 Then Jesus said, "Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?"
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16:33 The KJV Bible
An Ambassador of Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 5:18-20)
