You Just Never Know……….
I remember a Christmas in 1989.
I was a single Mommy. There was no money for gifts, and barely any money for food. When a knock came to the door, and I saw two people I had never met before with gifts, a bag filled with food and toys, my heart was touched in a way that forever changed my view of the holidays. They had toys for my son, a big black garbage bag FILLED with groceries, clothes for me and my son, and even a few treats. You know, things we don’t need but only GOD could have told them we wanted. These men were from a local church and had gotten word who I was, and that I could use some encouragement. That night I cried my eyes out with gratitude and made a decision to do the same one day for someone else.
I remember a Christmas many years later…
When it was my honor to secretly bless 5 single Moms. To this day they don’t know it was me who paid their electric, gas and rent payments 6 months in advance. They’ll never know who it was that sent Target gift cards for their children, spending money for the moms and enough groceries for 3 weeks. God dramatically changed our lives as I grew my own companies. We were now able to bless and provide for others.
The seasons of life come and go. We can go from having nothing, to having everything, faster than you could ever imagine. Life is but a vapor, but this one thing I do know: God loves us, He is a very present help in our time of trouble, and it is always an honor to bring encouragement to someone else, especially when they can’t give anything in return. It’s an honor to be ‘Jesus with skin on’ to someone in need, and to be a bright light to someone else’s darkness.
If you’re living in struggle tonight, I want to encourage you, that you WILL NOT be here forever. Let my story give you faith! If you’re living in plenty, I want to encourage you to reach out and touch someone, to share, love and shine brightly. If you’re living with just enough, be thankful, share your heart, your time and always know, you are not alone. You just never know how much of an impact you can make in someone’s life. In the world of social media, our abilities and opportunities have grown so much for this! Use it wisely! 🙂
Have a very Merry Christmas my friends. You’re more than customers to me and my team, you’re like family. It is such a blessing to be a small tool that God can use to help you grow in your personal life, your business and even spiritually. Thank you for being a customer and a part of our family.
With so much love,
