Instead of complaining… bless.
Instead of focusing upon myself…bless
Instead of being sarcastic…bless.
Instead of retaliating…bless.
Instead of ____________…bless.
That’s what we’re encouraged to do according to Peter in 1 Peter 3. Be nice. Be caring. Be loving. Be compassionate. Be humble. Bless.
So that’s what this blog is about. A word of hope, a word of encouragement and a word of blessing is offered as I share about our life in South Africa and also my life as a follower of Jesus. Yes, there are challenges. I share about those, but hopefully in a way that I see Jesus in the midst and encouraging me forward.
If you’d like to join me in this journey of “Instead, Bless,” you are most welcome!
