“You are a light..”

Hey there BCU Fam!

For this post, because of the informal format, please tune into the podcast recording (click here or on the BCU avatar below) and refer to the written post for the highlights. We pray the post blesses and encourages you. If so, please thumbs up AND leave a comment! Thank you and enjoy the post!

Podcast highlights:

  • Recently, BCU Live did a stewardship series about managing our time, with some focus on being in the karios (God’s perfect timing) time zone.
  • The day that post was released, I had an extremely hard time getting the podcast produced in a “timely” manner.
  • Because of the delay, I was a little anxious and concerned I would not have time to run an important errand.
  • The Lord had a word that was important for me to receive and the delay ensured that I got it.

Scripture references

Philippians 4:6-7.

Be (anxious) careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Colossians 3:23-25

23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;

24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

25 But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.

Matthew 7:14

Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Matthew 5:14-16.

14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Galatians 6:9

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Romans 8:28

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.


While others are blessed and encouraged, ultimately, all that we do is for an audience of One.


BCUFam, as I type this through happy tears, I marvel at how God allowed a delay to test how I would react to the enemy’s false accusations. I admit I was a concerned about my “lateness”, but Jesus reminded me who I was really serving, so with His help I was able to calm down and take the time to finish up the podcast properly. And then He used that same delay to have me run into a beautiful young woman of God (God bless you, Cynthia) who carried out her assignment to remind me of who the Lord says I am.(Insert praise here)! Listen, when we run on karios time, the Lord will bless us every time! Amen? Amen!

BCU celebrates podcast #200!

 

Here there BCU Family!

Typically, you have the option of listening to our podcast, reading the notes or both. For this post, because of the informal format, please tune into the podcast recording and refer to the written post for the highlights. We pray the post blesses and encourages you. If so, please thumbs up AND leave a comment! Thank you and enjoy the post!

Podcast highlights:

  • In this post/podcast, we celebrate episode number 200! God be glorified!
  • I was raised in the church, saved in my early adulthood, and knew all about the five-fold ministry (Ephesians 4:11), but had no aspirations in doing anything besides being in the choir.
  • I was a low-key kind of sister and liked it that way. Obviously, God had other plans. 😶
  • The Lord strategically used my job as a training camp, proving ground and direct link to show me where I was tasked to serve His people.

Isn’t God good? And on that note, I want to thank God for all of you and your prayerful support, likes, shares, and comments on our posts/ social media sites. At last check, BlenCouragesU.com has over 900 family members!!!
