Support is important

Years ago, when I was a rookie in the ministry field, my family came to listen to me preach one Sunday. My sisters husband, who was a wise and happy older man, told me afterwards at his home, “Esta!” (Esther) “You can preach, I gotta give that to you.” And he went on to say, which was the absolute truth, “But you just don’t have no suppote!” (Support. He had a gentle Southern accent.) And you want to know something? For years I didn’t have support from hardly anyone, maybe a $20 bill here and there or $50 three times a year or so. But recently, now that I have my stuff together and I am sure, satisfied, experienced and on fire for the Lord’s work, I now have support. Once you know that you know that you know that what you are doing is for the Kingdom and not YOU, God steps in and blesses the entire ministry. It took me years of mistakes and experience, joy and tears to get this far. By God’s Grace and Mercy, I now have those who enjoy what I do and they tell me every day. And don’t get me wrong, there are always those who don’t enjoy what you do and will let you know it too! But I was called for such a time as this and I am going to ride this thing until the wheels fall off. And no, I am not one of those screaming, big word-using, jumping up and down preachers so if you are looking for that….can’t do. I am not an actor, I preach the unadulterated Word of God. I preach it in a way that, people from any generation can understand. I once had an elderly gentleman come up to me after I preached in a big church from my hometown, and he said, “Now Rev. I liked that. You preach so ‘us dummies’ can understand it” and he laughed and walked away with his wife. I’ll never forget that. He has since passed, bless his soul, but he put a wonderful seed in me that day. (Mr. Alton, I’ll never forget you.) Don’t ever forget the good times and keen signs that God has shown you throughout the years. Write them upon the tablets of your heart. 
For you people who have been stepping in to help the ministry, thank you. It means more than I can type on this Blog. God bless your household 100 fold. May He give you ‘more-than-enough’….always. So much that your will have to give some away. 

Thanks for reading and have a successful day!
