There is no reward for inviting into your home those who can reciprocate.
I came to seek the lost and hurting people.
Remember, most of My miracles were to those who were destitute.
I gave sight to the blind man and cleansed the lepers.
I resurrected the widow’s son upon whom she depended.
I am extravagant with all My gifts and want you to be generous.
I have given you much and much is required of you.
I will show you the lost and needy.
I am pleased you want to reach out.
I will make a way for you to recognize those people
who want a helping hand in your community and church.
I will lead, guide and show you the way.
I only need My people to be willing.
Wait for Me to reveal the next step of the way.
When I was marriage and family therapist and mental health counselor, there were many hurting people who came to our center. There were those whose marriages had been devastated by adultery and usually both partners needed help in processing pain and anger. Other couples needed to hone their communication skills and solve minor problems. Still others were dealing with the aftermaths of sexual abuse or physical abuse.
The more serious mental illnesses were also reflected in our caseloads. Yet, these were often special people that we would see for long periods of time as they developed new abilities, were compliant with medications and went on to make successes of their lives. A wide variety of people were helped spiritually and emotionally.
Since I retired, I often wonder if God has something else He would like me to do as I wait in His presence, growing and learning more of His ways.
Yet, God has a plan and purpose for all our lives. As we wait upon the Lord, He asks us to be open and aware of those people He puts in our path. Often it is astonishing to hear the stories of those people, and who knows, you may be the one who sows a seed of kindness.
