Serving Others : Reaching Out to Those in Need

Praise the Lord for he is GOOD!
If you could feel the joy in my inner being it is amazing! I woke up as usual doing my thing and thoughts were running through my head as usual. God spoke to my heart early this morning about helping others. The message was just not meant for me. It’s meant for all of us! Too much is going on in the world to just sit by and ignore the needs of those less fortunate regardless of what the need is. There are many out helping others but that’s not enough. We can’t sit by and let them do it until they burn out. We need to be TEAM PLAYERS, not BENCH WARMERS. God is calling us out. How will you respond? My answer is ” Yes Lord, where do you need me? How can I be of service?” I’m ready to move into a new season! He knew my thoughts of lately and school will be starting up again. Everything seems to be lining up. One sign after another! The pieces are coming together right before my eyes. THIS IS GREAT!!
Dear friends please realize that you don’t have to have a perfect life,spiritual walk, great finances, a great education amongst a list of excuses that we can come up with to start doing something great. Think about what ever it may be that your heart desires to do and pray about it. Seek information. Allow God to speak to your heart and show you. You are capable of doing anything. Come as you are. If we wait on that “right moment” to come, we will always be waiting. Just step out on faith and move! And if I may add, whatever it is that you do, do it wholeheartedly. Do it because it’s the right thing to do. Not because you are looking to gain something out of it for yourself. Try to put yourself in someone elses shoes. You are blessed and fortunate. One day you may be on top of the world having success and the next, it’s all gone. We should never pride ourselves above others. Treat others the way you want to be treated. Scripture tells us in Phillipians 2:3-4 ” Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of others.”
I pray that you find it in your heart to seek a way to extend yourself and your talents to the world, reaching out and embracing a community, a child, an organization or whatever it may be to make a difference in the lives of others. All it takes is a willing mind and heart to do something positive. One foot forward and you are on the right track. I believe change will continue to happen. The enemy will throw roadblocks up to deter you. So be ready. He is wanting nothing more than to see people continue to suffer as well as living a life full of selfishness, hard hearts, unruly ways with a lack of care and respect for themselves and others.
Stay strong, be encouraged everyday that you are blessed with and seek all that the Lord has for you to do while you have breath. Tomorrow isn’t promised so live each day like it’s your last.
In Christ all things are possible……
