Today we hear again from Wendy Scott-Penson in the God Loves You series. These short videos (less than four minutes!) were designed specifically for you. You pour out, investing in your neighbors, teammates, children. You spend time learning the language, waiting in lines, walking to public transportation. You give and you give because it is worth it. Giving is also depleting.
Here on Tuesdays, we create space for your soul to be tended. For you to be poured into. For you to connect with the One who loves you.
Each video is less than four minutes. Feel free to play it with your eyes closed and let God speak directly to you. (Don’t see a video? Click here.)
If you were raised in the church, chances are that you grew up singing Jesus Loves Me This I Know, For the Bible Tells Me So.
The refrain is “Yes, Jesus loves me. Yes, Jesus loves me. Yes, Jesus loves me; the Bible tells me so.”
Why repeat that Jesus loves you? Because to truly learn something, you need to hear it again and again. You need to be exposed to it from this angle and that angle.
As Wendy shared about God’s LOVE for you, spend a few minutes in silence, allowing God to speak directly to you about His love for you.
If you missed last week’s encouraging video, you can see it here. Next week, you’re in for a treat as Wendy continues in the God Loves You series. Grace and peace friends.
Wendy Scott-Penson is a Senior Philanthropy Advisor with Wycliffe Bible Translators. In this role, through prayer and encouragement, she has the opportunity to invest in the lives of donors as they invest in Bible translation.
The spiritual gift of encouragement or exhortation has consistently been revealed as one of Wendy’s central traits. This has been confirmed both through official channels such as gifts assessments, and through informal interactions with colleagues, family and friends.
Wendy’s interest in encouragement has been intensified as she co-parents her three children, all of whom experienced trauma prior to becoming part of the family with her and her husband of 30 years, Derwin Penson.
Wendy counts it a joy and honor to contribute to Global Trellis. Having lived cross-culturally in a number of settings, she has personally been enriched by the unique challenges and blessings discovered when reaching past barriers of language and social difference in order to build loving, God-honoring relationships.
