"Hi Liza. Hope all is well with you.
When I read the quote below, you are the first person who came to mind:
“Never discuss your problems with someone incapable of contributing to the solution, because those who never succeed themselves are always first to tell you how. Not everyone has a right to speak into your life. You are certain to get the worst of the bargain when you exchange ideas with the wrong person. Be careful where you stop to inquire for directions along the road of life.” – Colin Powell
As much as these were not your exact words, but you also warned me to be careful of who I discuss my marriage problems with, and that alone has actually added to me progressing quicker in terms of healing and focusing on getting those issues resolved.
I thank you for those words of wisdom for they gave me direction.
You have no idea how much our interaction has added to my growth as a person.
Stay blessed & may His mercy and grace always be with you."
"We want to express our sincere gratitude for your willingness to serve our congregation. Thank you for spending time with our leaders and sharing your knowledge and experience with them. May you be blessed and experience all the good things our Father God has in store for you."
"You are a valuable gift in the body of Christ and the community. You have to deal with the drudgery day in and day out – that Satan throws at God’s people. Not many can or are willing to stand in the dirt and grime and help people get out and you do it selflessly.
Thank you, we appreciate you Liza and it is my prayer that Father God continues to give you a big heart and strong shoulders, infinite wisdom and knowledge that you may continually be used as a vessel for Him.
That you are His hands and feet and speak His words of healing and hope over people and lead them to Him and His ways.
Thank you, much love and blessings."
"Dankie liefste Liza. Ek “vat” hierdie lewensDANS met my hele hart.
Jy is ‘n baie belangrike instrument in God se Hand.
Dankie dat jy ‘n baie seer pad saam met my gestap het en my só baie gehelp het!"
"Hi Liza, just wanted to share the good news with you. I have accepted a new job and start in January.
So, yesterday I handed in my resignation, it was one of the hardest things I have ever done.
I was really privileged to be able to share this process with my parents. Thank you for helping me through this journey, I really appreciate it."
"I just want to say to you that nothing goes unnoticed by God and you certainly have not gone unnoticed. You are a blessing to many.
First and foremost, I would like to appreciate you for all your valuable support, help and the insight you provided.
God is good and He provides help to those in need through people like you. You sat with me as I outlined the humiliating events of my life that I had never managed to speak aloud and helped me to clear things out, helped me to see beyond my pain, helped me to move from darkness to light.
I sometimes listen to our sessions as I recorded all on my phone. My heart just keeps thanking you. May God continue to bless you with all that your heart desires. You are a blessing and a light in my life and in the lives of so many others.
Blessings to you and your family."
"Thank you for teaching the class in DEALING WITH ADDICTIONS. It was our top rated class by the students and leaders for this term! May the Lord bless you and reward you for your ministry."
Jy het nie ‘n idee hoe God jou kreatiwiteit gebruik nie. Dat jy nie probeer het om die krake toe te smeer nie, maar hulle juis deel van ‘n nuwe mooi te maak, jy het my uitgeboul.
My hart is bedien."
"This is a note to express my profound gratitude to you for your time, wisdom, guidance and for allowing yourself to walk with me through the process of healing myself from the brutal hurt I have suffered and held onto without sharing much with anyone.
I am grateful that I had the courage to ask for help and to God for leading me to you. Words cannot describe how peaceful and light I feel since I have started seeing you, the heavy load is shedding off gradually and I promised myself that I will see to finish regardless of the stumbling blocks along the way. With our God-guided help, I am certain that I will meet the future me who is waiting for me on the other side.
May God continue to bless you and the work that you do, saving souls and caring for those with heavy hurts. It cannot be an easy task, but you do it with love, patience and care each and every time. You are a blessing to many, including me.
May God grant you wisdom and more knowledge in what you do and in every area of your life.
May He keep you strong and healthy at all times. Surely goodness and mercy will follow you for the rest of your life.
May your cup overflow with blessings. I appreciate you!"
Net ‘n klein blykie van waardering van dankbaarheid vir wat jy deur die loop van hierdie jaar vir my beteken het.
Die Here doen groot werke deur jou."
Vanoggend aan jou gedink. Ek sien hoe jy twee saadjies plant in die grond, baie doelbewus en hulle goed versorg.
Daarna kom daar twee bome op, vol vrugte wat weer in hul eie tyd duisende saadjies verskaf wat weer geplant kan word. Sommer gou-gou kan jy ‘n hele boord plant, met al die bome in netjiese rye…
May God give you wisdom and insight as you plant, and may you enjoy the richest of fare!"
"Dankie vir dit wat jy in my lewe gesaai het, dankie dat jy so 'n gehoorsame instrument in God se Hande is. Ek sê vir almal jy is my spiritual mentor en ek eer jou regtig vir die amazing werk wat jy doen."
"On a personal level, I first want to say thank You to GOD and give all glory to Him, but I want to thank you too. You've been a great inspiration and a wonderful teacher, leader and most of all encourager to me. I'm so grateful that I was obedient to follow up on the counseling and fortunate that our paths crossed. You are an incredible, amazing, tender hearted and compassionate lady. Thank you for the freedom and guidance that you gave to me in order to express all my pain, hurt and frustration too. It has been a painful but fruitful journey and I thank you from the bottom of my heart."
"I pray that God, through the Holy Spirit, will continue to bless you and give you favor and strength to continue to do the work you are doing for Him and for others through your counselling. I pray blessings in abundance to you, that His presence continues to shine upon you and that His love enfolds you. I pray that His grace and mercies shall follow you all the days of your life and I give thanks to the Almighty God for you every day. I thank You Father that you continue to show us the path of life and that in Your presence is fullness of joy. That at Your right hand are pleasure forevermore. Thank You Jesus for Liza, in Your name Christ Jesus I pray, Amen."
