Lending a Hand

Lending a Hand
From One Minute Prayers for Women

She opens her arms to the poor and extends her had to the needy.
Proverbs 31:20

To whom should I give today? Whom can I help? Let me start the day with this
question,Lord. If I am asking to be of service, then I cannot ignore the opportunities when they arise. I have looked into needy faces and kept walking. I think too much about such things. My mind asks, "How can I fix someones life?
You ask me to be a woman of charity and kindness. My actions to be a woman of charity and kindness. My action to assist another child of God
become a part of your will for that person. You are not calling me to fix her,
to make her whole. Only you can do that. My job is to lend a hand along the way.

So true. If only we will do what we can, God will do what we can't.

There are so many people out there that need our help, even if it is just truly listening to them.

I have always thought that each one of us should just do what we can with the opportunities that God gives us and not be worrying about doing big things in distant places. We often miss the opportunities for serving staring us right in the face. This is a great post. Thank you for posting it.

You know, that's a good question to ask at the beginning of each day.
Thanks for sharing.
God bless,

Wow. This is so beautiful and a good reminder for all of us. A situation this week has me thinking of this and has encouraged me to move forward on it.
God bless.

It is a joy to give, to help, and to share with others. "And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for which such sacrifices God is pleased." Hebrews 13:16

Have a blessed week in the Lord, Ginger!

This is so true how much would the world be different if we all lent a helping hand in our own surroundings. Thanks for posting this for us to ponder today. I really like your new look - it certainly is eye-catching!
