Introducing the 2016 Biblical Character Awards

The Biblical Character Awards are my way of featuring a handful of readers and recognizing them for their contribution to my life and ministry.

 

“They have been a wonderful encouragement to me, as they have been to you. You must show your appreciation to all who serve so well” (1 Corinthians 16:18).

 

Meet Sara McKeefer

Sara McKeefer

 

I first knew Sara McKeefer as @lakegirl90 on Twitter. Her Twitter handle comes from living in the Northern Indiana Lakes Area. I watched as Sara connected with people on Twitter through prayer. She engages with people by sharing their prayer requests and celebrating answers. What a sweet spirit!

When Sara learned I have bipolar disorder, we connected even deeper because she has a family member with a mental illness. Sara has been a great encouragement to me for several years. I always know she will encourage me with a kind word, Scripture, and prayer. I am pleased to honor her with the Epaphras Prayer-Warrior Award.

 

Epaphras Prayer-Warrior Award

The Apostle Paul recognized Epaphras as someone who prayed earnestly for others. For this reason, the Epaphras Prayer-Warrior Award is given to someone who demonstrates the love of Christ by serving others through prayer and encouragement.

“Epaphras, a member of your own fellowship and a servant of Christ Jesus, sends you his greetings. He always prays earnestly for you, asking God to make you strong and perfect, fully confident that you are following the whole will of God” (Colossians 4:12).

    You are too sweet, Christy! My absence on Twitter for awhile has been due to dealing with unexplained pain and fatigue for the better part of three months. And then the Holy Spirit spoke after getting a clean slate, reminding me that I am already healed by the stripes laid on Jesus’ back.

    So, once more I am walking out my healing by being obedient in trusting God in every area of my life and particularly in what I eat and how much I exercise.

    Seeing your award today is just further encouragement on this journey. Every time I see your name, the word ‘hero’ pops into my mind, for I see you as one of the unsung heroes who is making a difference in others’ lives by hanging onto Jesus one day at a time.

    Thank you, Christy, for just being you and letting your light shine.
