I would like to introduce you to Monniiee. Right after writing one of my first posts, I subscribed to her blog after reading her post in the Related Articles section. The other day, Monniiee experienced what most Christians wonder if they’re ever ready for – witnessing. As Christians, we constantly wonder if our walk matches our talk. But if we’re faithful to the teachings of Scripture, and willing to serve Christ at any cost, in due time we shall reap a harvest from the diligent sowing of the Word.
Besides the introduction, Dear Readers, I have a two-fold purpose for today’s post. After reading Monniiee’s testimony on the 3rd, I was so moved that I left her a comment. I thought her testimony might help others so I asked if I could re-post some of it to my blog for the Faithful Friday series. Her gracious answer was, Yes!
The second reason for this post is the inspired Topic #244 from dailypost.wordpress.com. It asks to visit another blog, use the postaday or postaweek tag, leave a comment, and post about it on my blog. The goal is to spread some goodwill – which I think is very appropriate for this day leading up to September 11th.
Below is part of her testimony. Please take some time to read the rest of it here and show some goodwill by leaving Monniiee a few words of encouragement.
Enjoy this part of Monniiee’s testimony:
1.) Then it totally clicked in my mind: it is true that you/we may be the only God some people see. I’d heard that before, but I don’t think I really believed it until he said it. Just because someone has been to church and lives in the Bible Belt does not mean they’ve encountered Jesus through his followers. It’s a little overwhelming to think about but the world is a dim place, just because the churches are full doesn’t mean it’s lit. If a 21 year-old girl can shock a 48 year-old man who grew up in the south that has an abundance of churches… that tells you something. We need to represent, because no one else will.

Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love and in endurance.
