Because He Cares

 I follow twenty or so moms who chose life over abortion. Some ask for more contact and help than others. I text each of them a daily Bible verse. I noticed lately that most of them read the verse each day. That is all the encouragement I need. There is power in the word of God. If they are reading, I will keep sending.

Nearly every day, I get a response like the one I got yesterday: Thanks. I really needed to hear that today.

I always text back, "I am glad. Is everything okay?"
Usually, they don't respond. They want me to know that God's word penetrated to some place it needed to be, but it's a place they aren't always willing to share with me.

That's okay. God has them in His sights. As long as they are reading, I will keep texting.

Philippians 2:4 

Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.

Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”

With all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love,
