Thank you!

I found out that I was nominated for the Mathetes Award, created by http://managementbygod.blogspot.com/2007/09/excellence-in-discipleship.html
"I have discovered that there many others that have a similar heart to share God's Word, and further His Kingdom. The role of a disciple of Christ is to carry His message to the ends of the earth. It is with this heart that I have created the Mathetes Award."(Awarded to me by My Christian Life blogger- thank you! http://goodchristianlife.com/?p=45#comment-19

I'm encouraged by the recognition of my heart's purpose to help refuel anyone's Faith tank when it's getting low! I'd like to nominate five bloggers for their efforts at encouraging and discipling, and ask that they pass it on to five others:

And for all those who read my blog and who are busy sharing Christ's love and grace in this world- recognized by an award or not- YOU are noticed by God, and His hand is on you to make you "mount up with wings as eagles...(and) run and not be weary, walk and not faint." ......Walk on.

Hello sweet friend,
You are such a constant encourager to me!! Thank you for nominating me for the Mathetes Award. Even when life is crazy and I can't find time to write you remind me that God uses even the small and infrequent breadcrumbs I leave along the trail.

Hugs!
Renee

Wow! As a new reader and commenter to your blog, it's sweet that you would think of me...I was/am blown away! I feel many times that my posts are just grasping at what I really want to say, but we never know what others may need and take away from anything, do we? Thanks for this award. It means a lot. I'll get busy thinking about where to pass it next. I'm still enjoying your blog a lot...

Lauren, I just read the great commission this morning and contemplated it feeling so inadequate in fulfilling that commandment. Thank you for this encouragement and glory to God! I'll keep pointing others to the Son.
