Barnabas Award

I would like to thank both Pene’ @ Pene’ Pasta for the Soul! and Matt @ Jesusluvsall’s Blog for nominating me for the Barnabas Award! Pene’ and Matt are great at encouraging others through their posts and comments.  If you don’t know them, I “encourage” you to check out their blog for a little encouragement!

The way this works:

  • Thank the person who nominated you, and share their blog.
  • Think of five bloggers that encourage and inspire you and nominate them.
  • List five things about yourself.
  • Lastly, ask your nominees five questions. Why five? Because five is the number that signifies grace.

5 Things About Me

  1. I was saved in my early 20’s, and I have walked with the Lord for 43 years.
  2. I am an organ donor.
  3. I am an avid walker.
  4. I have a motorcycle endorsement on my DL.
  5. I do not have a sense of direction and get lost easily.

Matt’s Questions For Me:

  1. Who in your life is your biggest encourager? I have to say the Word of God.  Every time I read God’s Word, I come away encouraged.
  2. How do you see yourself as being an encouragement to others?  My favorite way to encourage others is in their relationship with Jesus. I want to see others grow spiritually and will do everything I can to help them.
  3. When was the last time someone gave you words of encouragement? A few days ago, when a friend expressed to me that I have been an encouragement to her.
  4. When you are down, what encourages you to get back up and keep pressing on? Prayer.  Today I received some discouraging news before I sat down to finish this post.  Before I could start typing, I had to pour my heart out to the Lord, and He reset my focus.
  5. Who was your greatest encourager when you first accepted Christ? My Sunday School teacher, Mrs. B.

Pene Questions for Me:

  1. Besides WordPress, what other forums do you frequent? WordPress is my only form of social media.
  2. Why did you take the leap and began blogging?  I took the leap to start blogging because I like to write.  I find it easier to express myself in written form over talking.
  3. What would you change in today’s world if you could?  Today, I would change our dependency on technology.  We are allowing technology to do our “thinking” for us.
  4. What influenced your decision to become a follower of Christ?  I would say the teaching of God’s Word and the wooing of the Holy Spirit.
  5. How do you think you have grown in your Christian walk? I have grown in my Christian walk through trials.  Every trial draws me deeper into the Word of God and a deeper dependence upon God.

My Questions for you:

  1. Who in your life is your biggest encourager?
  2. How do you see yourself as being an encouragement to others?
  3. When was the last time someone gave you words of encouragement?
  4. When you are down, what encourages you to get back up and keep pressing on?
  5. Who was your greatest encourager when you first accepted Christ?

    1. Actually, I’m afraid of motorcycles😂 When I was younger a friend, and I learned to ride for the fun of it. I never got that comfortable riding, so I didn’t ride much, but the endorsement is still on my license. 😊
