This week we did a "home makeover" for a widow who is taking care of her grandkiddos. We also did some food sorting for a local food bank, visiting the nursing home, did some repairs at a home for battered women and at a home that helps people who are homeless get back on their feet, helped a homeless man one on one, and putting on a fun day for families that are migrant workers nearby. We got the chance not only to "do stuff" for others, but to pray with them, to witness to many, and to build relationships with each other!
Believe me people there are a lot of mistakes to be made in just one hour let alone one day!
Step back into God's presence..... and let HIM remind you of WHOSE you are.
As for me- I am the Daughter of the Most High! I am complete in Him. I am worthy. I was chosen to be my children's mother. I was chosen to be my husband's bride and help mate. I was chosen by God to play a role in Emerge. I was chosen for so many great things! I just can't do it on my own. I have to listen for that sweet voice of my Savior for direction.
