A Blessing to Others
Last week, I shared how God provided for me in my weakness.
I work in a service industry where I give a lot of myself. I have people come to me with a variety of issues and I often have to think outside the box to find a solution to the problem.
There are days when I am left drained and exhausted, having given all of myself I can give. This is especially true on the days when I put on my counselor hat and listen to a variety of problems. The one thing I have discovered is that more than anything, we all need someone to just listen as we share our burdens.
But, I can’t tell you how many times, I wonder if I make a difference or if anyone even cares about what we do. However, on occasion I have my boss, family members, resident’s themselves and other co-workers thank me for a small act I’ve provided. I am reminded how these small acts can add up and make a difference.
My daily prayer is “Lord, please allow me to be a blessing to those I come into contact with today.”
By no means, do I believe I am able to do all that I do within my own power. I know that it is only through the goodness and grace of my Lord Jesus, that I am able to be such a blessing to others.
Proverbs 11:25 says, “The generous soul will be made rich, and he who waters will also be watered himself.”
