June 19–Anonymous Love!

 Two days ago I got some Anonymous Love sent to me.

The Anonymous Love came in the form of a card–a message mailed to my home–not voice-mailed, not emailed, not texted, not tweeted, not blogged. (Although LOVE in any form—coming through any delivery system, food and hugs included—is still Love!)

The Anonymous Love Card was signed by “a servant and messenger of God”—and began with this phrase:

“Your life shows what your words tell—

that daily walking with God really makes all the difference.”

It made me just stop. Really Stop. I was thankful. And I was blessed by this sharing of Anonymous Love. The message was such a beautiful and kind encouragement to me—as it was meant to be.  (If the sender is reading this: Thank you, for being such a sweet and loving hug from God to me!)

But! What made me just stop—Really Stop—was that I was absolutely humbled. I knew that my trust in Jesus was because others before me had trusted Him and LOVED me enough to point me to Jesus with their faithful words and ways and through their faithful lives.

And so, I’m humbledAnd challenged. Because I want everyone to know the LOVE of Jesus and the Truth of His Word and the Power of His Spirit. For me to play even a small part in that happening in even just one life means that I have to stay passionately and completely dependent—aka staying in a mindset of trust—on the unlimited LOVE and Truth and Power of my Lord Jesus Christ!

We know we can trust Him! There’s nothing Anonymous about the LOVE of Jesus! We know the Source!

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him,

so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13 

 (Scripture written on the Anonymous Love Card)

Trust God. And LOVE on somebody for Jesus! Face to Face or Anonymously!

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
