I am glad of the coming of Stehanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus: for that which was lacking on o your part they have supplied. For they have refreshed my spirit and yours: therefore acknowledge ye them that are such. I Cor 16:17-18
Just like we are seeing Spring bursting forth, it refreshes us, gives us hope, makes us have a "spring" in our step, people can have the same effect on us as well. It says in this verse these 3 people supplied what was lacking in some folks. I have much lacking in me!! But it also says to acknowledge them, tell others of these people that have "refreshed" you!! Maybe so others can skip over to them and also be refreshed by them too! Kristen's mom, Sue has refreshed my heart! When I talk to her or text her, I always sense such a peace in her spirit that it encourages me. I know she would say, its the Lord and it is, but it flows out and that encourages others to be benefited that even in difficult times, God is Faithful! Another "refresher" person is my friend Natalie! I just love her to pieces! She is always so bright and cheery! I am thankful for her and her family!!! Who do you know that "refreshes" you? It says to acknowledge them.....do that in some way this week!!
Hope you off to a great week!! The weather is so pretty today!!!!
