Daily Encouragement: 28 May 2020, Southampton

Bill Johnson talks of thanksgiving as the thing which helps the seed of an answer from God grow into its fullness. In an acorn is the potential not only for an oak tree, but for many, many more acorns - what God gives in seed form has exponential potential - today lets take time to be thankful in whatever ways we can, and press on for the fullness God promises.
