God has given each of you special abilities; be sure to use them to help other, passing on to others God’s many kinds of blessing.1Peter 4:10
I love this scripture that God has entrusted you with unique gifts and strengths.
It encourages me with so many thoughts-
How can we be love in a world where we see so many needs?
How can we show love unconditionally?
What does that look like in the community where you live?
How can you be a blessing to someone who needs it?
There has definitely been a significant time in my life where people have journeyed with me. They have walked me through difficult seasons in my life.
They have taught me of God’s unconditional love, what a blessing they are.
As a new Christian I did not understand what unconditional love looked like and felt like. I prayed to God to know what unconditional love was.
God answered my prayer in ways that would change my life forever.
I had amazing Christian women that saw me in my difficult time and still loved me, that saw me broken, fragile and still they loved me.
I always knew that when I was better, stronger and healed that I wanted to give back.
There are heaps of opportunities all over the place.
Has someone journeyed with you when you were facing a difficult situation?
Has someone loved you just as you are?
Begin where you live, where you work, where you go to school. Who could you encourage today?
Be bold, be brave, be compassionate where you live. Pray, step out in faith and make a difference.
Some ideas are-
- Send an encouraging letter to someone who is going through a challenging time
- Encourage your Pastor
- Take someone out for coffee and pay for them
- Send someone a gift certificate to buy food
- Pay for someone behind at the grocery store (don’t let them see you)
- Encourage your teacher
- Smile at someone
- Mentor someone who needs words of encouragement
- Pray for others, be someone’s prayer warrior
- Send a gift basket to someone
- If you are creative make something for someone
- Lead a small bible group
The list is endless, use the gift that God has given you to be a blessing to someone today.
God will encourage you he will provide the opportunities for you.
A pray for your day-
I pray to be at the right place at the right time under the right circumstances, I pray for divine appointments, divine connections. Show me Jesus who you would like me to bless today. Help me to hear your voice Holy Spirit. In Jesus name amen.
Love cannot remain by itself — it has no meaning. Love has to be put into action, and that action is service.” – Mother Teresa
