Using my break time to write to you…:)
Look up…ask “What is God doing? How can I be a part of what He is doing?”
I was reminded this morning on the way to my car of my classmate who was healed of thyroid cancer. It took one moment, one act of obedience, on my part to ask my teacher if I could pray for my class. Anyone who was sick could come and receive prayer. I have permission to share this story, her story.
She’s been working hard to start her own business after being let go for choosing righteousness over her boss’s unrighteousness. She has been relying on God to support her and her three children. She was hit by a car and suffered many injuries. Yet I watched this woman reach out to others in her own need and help them. She got my number and began to text me encouragement and prayers, YouTube videos, etc…I saw a hurting person looking up to God and to seek out someone to bless.
When she told me she had cancer and did not know how she would make it, I thought, “Jesus heals cancer. Jesus heals.” So that night I asked my teacher, “Can I pray for the sick?” She responded, “Yes.” That night Jesus healed this woman (doctors confirm they can no longer find cancer) and my teacher had great improvement too…my class prayed too. Jesus met us on a University campus…He only needs the willing, there’s no limit to what God can and will do.
It’s so easy to be distracted. I am at times. You know…It’s easy to look at what’s happening in my life or what’s not happening instead of “Who around me needs Jesus? Who is sick and needs the Healer? Who needs a smile or hug or to hear that they will make it? What is God doing? What is God saying? How can I partner with Him today to change a life?”
It’s also easy to say, “God will send someone else, someone more qualified than me.”
If I were God, I would not have picked me to be a spokesperson for Him. I am highly introverted and came with loads of brokenness…gosh my soul had been to war. I would’ve picked someone who was more outgoing, gained energy from being with people, and had less scars than me. Yet as Kathryn Kuhlman stated, “God is not looking for perfect vessels, golden vessels, or silver vessels. He is looking for yielded vessels.”
You and I can change a life. You and I can look up and then outward and increase heaven.
I know it can be uncomfortable. I know it takes time to step out and help others, serve them. I know it’s easier to look within. I know…yet you and I have a limited time on earth and eternity in heaven. The career won’t matter in heaven. Who we married, not so much (there’s no marriage up there). How much money we made, nope. Who we knew, not really. What will matter is how we loved God and other people.
May you and I look up and seek God for who we can invest in, how we can live led by the Spirit to bring about radical transformation in a life. It only takes one.
Last story, some of you know I do street ministry. I go out into the city and prayer walk/feed the hungry/pray for people. Some say it’s a waste of time. Yet each time I go I find someone who needs the love of God. One man I met had decided that day he was going to run out into traffic and kill himself. He had it all planned out. That day he encountered the love and delivering power of Jesus. Suicide was broken off him and he was given hope.
God bless you! You are a world changer. I hope each day you and I are on the lookout for what God is doing, who He wants to touch, and how we can enlarge heaven. We are His Ambassadors on Earth.
Love in Christ,
Have a super day! God loves you! The Healer, Savior, Deliverer is in you!
