Scripture Memory


Psalm 115:1

Not to us, O LORD,
not to us,
But to Your name give glory.
Because of Your
lovingkindness, because
of Your truth

I've been working at Love INC (In the Name of Christ) for a month now.  I've had the opportunity to help several people.  It has been amazing.  I love it!  I also want to make sure that I don't get the credit.  I do it all to lift up the name of Christ, not Melissa.  I am in position to help others because God blessed me.  I may be on the other side of things someday, and I hope others will step up and help me so we can all rejoice in Jesus' name together!

My husband and I are struggling on how to share the passions that God has given us, and somehow keep from bringing the attention to us.  We don't want to share what we've been doing in order for people to "wow" us, but we do want to encourage others to try what we've tried.  We have found such an excitement to life in Christ, and we want others to "get it" like we finally are starting to.  One way we try to keep ourselves grounded is to keep our activities bathed in prayer and to ask ourselves when we talk to people is, "What is my motivation?".  We want to have God glorified in all we do.
