Joseph, a Levite from Cyprus, whom the apostles called Barnabas (which means “son of encouragement”), Acts 4:36. When I think about Barnabas, my sister-in-law comes to mind and when I think about my sister-in-law, Barnabas comes to mind. My sister-in-law has always in her quiet mannerism given encouragement to others. I believe the Holy Spirit was governing me to ask my sister-in-law, Sharon, to join me on my journey of writing my devotional book. I texted her on May 2, 2019, at 9:13 am. I told her that I had something on my mind and her name keeps coming up. I asked Sharon if she could meet me at my house around 10:30 that day. She responded and said she would try her best to make it there at 10:30. Sister Sharon and I have worked together on a ministry in the past. We are the founders of the “Young & Seasoned” ministry. The ministry was based on Titus 2:3-5. The ministry was based on scripture where the older women are to teach the younger women. “Young & Seasoned” was a 6-week course, providing a demonstration on how to cook a meal, the ladies/girls would then sit down to a prepared meal with their dedicated mentor and then go to separate class rooms and discuss that week’s lesson. Sister Sharon and I wrote the 43-page workbook (not published). Sister Sharon later wrote another workbook “Manners and Me” (not published). This workbook was a younger version of “Young & Seasoned”. When my sister-in-law arrived, I shared with her what was on my mind. I asked her before she responded to me to pray about it. Matthew 6:6. But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.
