  2. Thank you Ann for the heartfelt sharing. That principle of mentoring and someone seeing your gifts, before you may even realise it, is seen throughout scripture.
    God encouraging Moses, when he was clueless that there was any possibility of him having that strength and ability. Yet God saw him already there. Joshua left alone after Moses’s death with millions of people looking to him, and God giving him a great pep talk that he could do it because God would help him as he tried. Gideon being greeted by the angel as a great and mighty man. We all need someone to believe and help us along the way, because life is tough and hard. Our faith helps us to see the unlimited possibilities and as “iron sharpeneth iron” we can so the same for each other. We can support and encourage. It is a reciprocal relationship that both parties in reality can build the other one up and remind us who we really are in this world. Warmest regards, Len
