Let's Get Out There!!

There are many people out there that need us. Need a friend, a helping hand, a shoulder to cry on, and someone just to be there.. I was talking to a wonderful woman I know named Carol Williams. Carol was telling me that she just got too comfortable in her life. Her life revolved around her family and her church... God says to spread his word and his love but your not reaching people who need it when you are already surrounded by it. So Carol got out of her "comfort zone" and started volunteering at Working Wardrobes, a non-profit organization that helps people to get back into the work force.. She is the type of person that makes you feel like a million bucks after you talk to her. She sees the special person inside of you and she just loves you and it shows...there isn't one shred of falseness in this woman...Carol quickly became a favorite over at Working Wardrobes. She's helps men and women pick out outfits to wear on job interviews. She helps give back their confidence. She lets them know they are somebody... somebody special.. Carol glorifies Jesus in all that she does..
Carol is an example of what we need to do as followers of Christ. We need to get outside our comfort zone. 1 John 3:17 'But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him?' Volunteer a day, a hour, a month...whatever you can spare. There are so many places we can go....hospitals, childcare facilities, homeless shelters, convalescent homes, and food banks just to name a few...Adopt a grandparent, an uncle, a child,or a family...give money anonymously to someone in need...donate can goods, clothes, and other things to Goodwill, Salvation Army, Jenny's house, or The Mac Donald house...there are a gazillion things you can do today....
Hebrews 13:16 'Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God'
Let's get out there!!!! and make a difference...

Amen .
Thank you for sharing a wise observation.Not that this person needs the praise but that we need to be encouraged to follow her example of service to others as unto our Lord.
Glory to our Father for His mercies never end.
Have a blessed weekend.
