So...I press on, believing that God, in His all-knowing ways, has a plan. And I don't want to miss it!!
I have to update you on my eBay auctions that are raising money for me to send to Honduras for a birthday party for my World Vision little girl. The auctions are exactly at the halfway point. There are three and a half days left in the three auctions, and the bids are currently at exactly half of what my goal is to raise!! I've done some little happy dances these past few days as I've watched the bids go higher and higher! I can't wait to see the final bids Monday afternoon!!
Today's focus in our six-week quest is on light--being light in a dark world. We were challenged to come up with an acronym for LIGHT that describes how God wants us to use our hands, feet, heart and head on behalf of the poor. Here is what I came up with:
L: Love them by faith--"The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love." Galatians 5.6 (want to know why that verse was on my mind? Because it was the key verse for today's lesson in my Beth Moore study! :o)
I: Include them in my life.
G: Give sacrificially to their needs.
H: Help them with my actions, not just with my money.
T: Teach them about the love of God.I have never gone on any kind of mission trip, but that is what was on my mind as I was thinking about this acronym. I have been thinking and praying about the right opportunity that God might have in store for me. You can be sure I'll share all about it when that time comes around!
