On Giving

Dear Ones,
Giving is a part of worship, a part of the joy, a part of total dependence on Me. What you give to, you become a part of. Giving releases you from care. It settles it forever that I am in charge and you are the temporary holders of My wealth.
Other than that, I love My people and you can't give to Me without receiving something in return. It's just not possible. Thank you for including giving in your worship and may you be blessed as I pour out My love to you. Abba

In these economic times, it is important not to hold back your hand. There is a river that flows constantly called sowing and reaping and we want to keep that river going. We can give time by helping others. We can give money. God wants us to give what we can, cheerfully, not what we don't have. Our emotions, feelings, prayers, and burdens can all be given to God. It is such a joyful, little thing to do. Blessings, Nancy


  1. What a beautiful message, Nancy. And so many are embarrassed by their circumstances, sometimes just a hug and a "I know how hard this is for you," can go a long way.

  2. Thanks for dropping by Arise 2 Write. I have joined to follow your blog and look forward to getting to know you. I also have another blog where I speak in the voice of one of my therapy dogs, Sitka. If you would like to check it out, go to:

    Blessings and prayers, Andrea

  3. Wonderful encouragement, Nancy! Thank you!

  4. Thank you for the reminder that we should always give. People should understand in these tight economic times that giving of our time and energy is actually just as, if not more, rewarding than giving actual money or material goods. Anyone can put money in an envelope but it takes a true giving soul to give his/her time to help others.

  5. Thanks for sharing this from God's heart. So true. We often think money is the only thing we can give, but it's a small part of our lives, really.

  6. Great post - I find it incredible to see - when you give with a cheerful heart the blessing that are bestowed upon you. We serve an Awesome God.
    Enjoyed visiting and I will be back.
