I Can Help!

The life of the godly is full of light and joy, but the sinner’s light is snuffed out.”   Proverbs 13:9

We all have to agree that these days are dark and heavy, but what a better time to be joyful, enthusiastic, and have a happy, giving heart?! You say, "Whattttttttt!?"  That’s right! It is a good time to show the joy of the Lord to a world that is down and feels defeated.

When those who are depressed can’t seem to find their way, they will wonder, "What do they have?" "Why are they so happy?"  "I want what they have!"  This is a good time to bring encouragement and share the love God wants to give to the sad, broken, worried, and heavily burdened. 

This is not a time to join in with a depressed nation who feels defeated; it’s a time to show them there is a better way!  What the world needs now is love, comfort, joy, hope, and assurance; they need, JESUS, the Way Maker! We have what they need; we can share Jesus with them and his love for them!  This is what God expects his children to do!

Hearts are heavy and ready for relief and to hear words of healing, hope, and kindness. They need to know someone cares! Jesus cares and so do we!  There is something that every Christian can do for someone.  Think about what you could do for a neighbor, a friend, a stranger, someone at work, a waitress, a clerk at the store, or even someone one who might be in your church family.  Pray and ask God what could you do for someone to help them be encouraged and uplifted!  Everyone knows of someone!  Don’t miss out on this opportunity! The Bible tells us the fields are waiting and ready! This is a great time to show the love of Christ! Isn’t this what Christians are called to do?  It is not a time to hide your light under a bushel basket!  Take advantage of this down time and lift someone up! Let them know there is a way and a Way Maker!

“The godly speak words that are helpful, but the wicked speak only what is corrupt.” Proverbs 10:32
