It’s so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of our lives. One of the ways the enemy distracts us is by making us constantly busy. When we are busy with our own lives and our own problems then we don’t have the time nor energy to think about anyone else.
As I’ve said many times before, I never want my life to be just about me. I desire to help other people. Nothing compares to the joy of helping someone else. Especially if we give them a little glimpse of God.
This morning as I spent my time with God, I asked myself and God this question: Who needs me to show up today?
Sometimes we just have to put our own fears and problems aside to help someone else. Have you ever been in the trenches of your life and had someone say something encouraging to help you? That type of gift is priceless.
I have no idea what anyone needs. I don’t know how to inspire or encourage anyone. But my Lord knows what we all need. I believe our wisdom and the gifts of overcoming that He has given us are meant to be shared with others. If we can help just one person to have a better day, then our efforts would be rewarded greatly.
When I focus on helping someone else or being kind to everyone that I meet, then my problems don’t seem as big. It gives my day purpose. Someone woke up this morning feeling as if their situation is hopeless. I remember that feeling well. Years ago, I hated Mondays. I hated my job and I had an emptiness inside of me. While I went to work and received a paycheck, I never felt fulfilled. So I asked God to give me something, a special gift, that would enable me to help other people. And He did.
The gift is inside of me, and it’s up to me whether or not I use it. We don’t have to be at church to serve God. We can serve Him, by how we treat other people. Serving God and being in the center of His will is the only thing that fulfills us anyway.
Who needs you to show up today?
Love and blessings,
