Lighting up my little corner of the world

I am sorry I haven’t written. I feel like things are crazy in my head and my heart. I hear of so many hurting, and sometimes I am so overwhelmed by the fact that I want to do something. But sometimes all I can do is pray. Now, I know know know that there is nothing better that I can do, there is nothing greater than to lift someone to the thrown of Jesus and let Him handle it. I know that. I know that God is bigger, greater, mightier, smarter, stronger, loves more. I know. But I just want to do something.

Sunday Pastor Chilly was talking about how he is afraid to sleep, he said something like if Jesus comes he doesn’t want to be sleeping… I totally get that. Well, not the sleeping part because I need my rest.

People are always saying to me that I am awesome. I don’t know about all that, but I do want to be inspiring, and I do want people to see me and say “I can do that” and then do it. I think we are all called to different things, and at different times in our life the call is different.

I don’t feel called to adopt from Africa, but I feel called to do whatever God has given me that talent to do to help those He has called. Sometimes its to pray, or love, or just donate a bunch of my stuff! I feel called to run for clean water. I feel like someday, I will visit the place that is getting the donations from our run. So I will.

I don’t feel called to run a daycare, but I feel called to have a jar on my desk and collect change for a change. So I will. And I do feel called to love teenagers! so I will!!

I don’t feel called or equipped to join one of the armed forces, but I feel called to make Valentine’s and Easter cards and send candy. So I will.

I don’t want Jesus to come back or me die, get to heaven and God say “why didn’t you… I gave you the opportunity.

Maybe shoveling snow for your neighbors doesn’t seem like that big of a deal, but when you are mail man/woman who has to deliver mail in the snow, I bet it’s a lot. I know that when I was a kid, I hated walking home when the sidewalk wasn’t shoveled, and may I never forget. Coming home from a long day and your walk/driveway shoveled is ‘a little heaven on the way to heaven” as Pastor Clark would say.

I want my life to count for something. I want to the world to know that Jesus changed my life, and I won’t stop loving til I’m rejoicing in heaven!

Col 4:2-6 Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. 3 And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. 4 Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. 5 Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. 6 Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.




Light up the World – Desperation
I'm gonna believe that we will see the Kingdom come to earth,
I'm gonna believe that signs and wonders follow hearts that burn,
I'm gonna believe that sickness sin and poverty will cease,
I; m gonna believe that power from the heavens will release.

Oh let Your Kingdom come on earth
And let your will be done,

Yeah light up the world with your love,
Rain down on our hearts like a flood,
Our eyes will see the glory of God,
Our eyes will see.

I'm gonna believe that fathers and their children will unite,
I"m gonna believe that marriage will not end without a fight,
I'm gonna believe that churches will become Your hands and feet,
I'm gonna believe that acts of love and kindness will increase,

Oh let Your Kingdom come on earth
And let your will be done,

Yeah light up the world with your love,
Rain down on our hearts like a flood,
Our eyes will see the glory of God,
Our eyes will see.

Our eyes will see the glory of God,
Our eyes will see the glory of God,
Our eyes will see the glory of God,

Your life counts for something indeed sister ... your humility and the fact that you keep coming to Him ...

Part of your blog reminded me of a quote, and although not totally on point, I felt called to share:

"God doesn't call the qualified, he qualifies the called"

Just keep listening to Him and He will guide you along the way ... even when it seems you're in the dark. Continue to share your heart!

Your brother in Christ,
~Matthew
