Ooh, Let me Fix that for You!

What do you do when someone you love or care about is racing into a head-on collision? What do you do when someone is about to make a detrimental mistake?

My first instinct, of course, is to jump in and be a hero, but what if that’s not the right answer? What if, instead of fixing someone, we’re just supposed to love them?

Go Team!

You, with your specific gifting and life experience, are valuable to the Body of Christ. It’s so tempting to look at the gifts of others and become envious of what they have or have been afforded. But that’s the wrong perspective, but an easy trap to fall into. Instead of being jealous of another person, what if we devoted that energy toward practicing and honing the gift that God has given us?

Don’t Disdain the Little Things

It’s my hope and prayer that we would begin to live life with our eyes open, ready to respond appropriately when we see an opportunity to do something little. Your next step doesn’t need to be grand, it doesn’t need to be life-altering or world-shaking, but it has to be a step. After taking one, two, ten, thirty steps, you’ll look around and see yourself somewhere entirely new, all because you endured, faithfully planting one foot in front of the other, encouraging others along the way.

Just Try

Something is placed in front of me, I think “I can’t do it” and just stare at it, soaking in my failure and ineptitude. But the beautiful thing is that God’s right there, whispering in my ear, “You can do it, just trust me.”
