More Encouragement

I guess God is speaking quite clearly right now. I'm finding that I have been chasing God less over the last year or so, but hearing him more. Odd really.

2 Corinthians 1 v2-3
3Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.

This passage that I read this morning has reminded me that God works in processes. He gives so that we can give. He comforts so that we can comfort. He is Love and we should be Love too. He blesses us so that we can bless others and show his Glory.

If we do pass on what we're given, we then get more (it's that process thing again,) not only passing blessings, but real change in our inner self.

We just have to stop holding on to the blessing.
