Blog Hop words of encourgaement

This weeks bloghop is words of encouragement. The best words I can find and will ever find are all written out for us in the Bible. So many times God has shown me the right passage for the right moment.
I am a strong believer in serving God and serving him in the place he wants you. Aaron and I are in a transition at our church and we have been praying for God to place us in an area where we hang make a HUGE impact on others. We just want to show others the light as we were once shown.

The last few weeks we are doing a study in Ephesians at our church. I consider the entire book of Ephesians words of encouragement, but I am going to give you some verses that stand out to me:

The end of the Prayer for the Ephesians
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than we all ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen
Ephesians 3: 20-21

This is when God is telling us to be light children in him

Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
Ephesians 5: 1-2

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of the light for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth and find out what pleases the Lord.
Ephesians 5: 8-10
