Welcome to His Encouragement. I have joined with some blogging friends to bring you a new Bible verse every Thursday, and a little discussion of hope and encouragement. We welcome you to join the conversation by adding your daily verse of encouragement as well.

I pray that these Thursday posts become an encouragement to you and help you end your week strong in God’s love and purpose for you. God bless!

Today’s Thursday Encouragement:

You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you
that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain,
that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.

John 15:16


This week my son and husband are at an International Pathfinder Camporee. There are over 57,000 children and adults in attendance from all over the world, representing over 100 countries.  Similar to boys or girl scouts, Pathfinders learn outdoor skills, Bible knowledge and how to be good citizens of their communities. It is the Youth program of the Seventh-day Adventist church.

Their theme for this week of Camporee is Chosen. They will be studying the life of David this week through Bible lessons, skits, and songs. There are community outreach projects, and opportunities to meet others from around the world and make new friends.

Last evening the speaker talked about how God has chosen each and every one of us. Even when we may feel invisible and small, no one is invisible to God. He is El Roi. The God who sees me (Gen 16:13).

Dear friends, God sees you, He has chosen you! He has a wonderful plan for your life! In the verse, it says that God wants us to bear fruit. That means that He wants us to share His love with others, to bring other’s to know God. Ask God to help you share your faith, your love of Him with someone else, and be prepared for the amazing things that will happen next!


Now it is your turn!

What Bible verse is blessing you today?

  1. I am going to go with Psalm 89:15.
    “Happy are the people who know the joyful shout; Yahweh, they walk in the light of Your presence.”

  2. I love this post, Trisha! This line especially resonates with me: “Even when we may feel invisible and small, no one is invisible to God.” I’m so grateful God sees me. Thank you for this reminder. ❤
