Welcome to another edition of Make A Difference Mondays! If you take away only one thing from this post, take away this – the Make A Difference Mondays initiative is not about us or anything we may do. We do this for God and because of Him, and will always point back to Him. Our goal is not for anyone to be impressed by what we’re doing, but be impressed by the One we’re serving.
I don’t know about you but I have found the more hats I am wearing, the more balls I am juggling at one time – the easier it is to fall behind on the news (not to mention alot of other things ;)) Sometimes that’s okay, or even a good thing. There is alot on the news each day, I definitely do not miss seeing. But sometimes there are the incredibly relevant and important stories in the news that I definitely do missing seeing. Sometimes it takes me a few days or more to catch up and really be up to date on the very realities that those suffering in these stories cannot escape. I’m sad to say I still need to read up on all that’s going on in the stories of the kidnapped Nigerian girls, and undoubtedly much more. One recent news story has hit home in a unique way this past week, so I want to get up to date on the current situation, and would encourage you to do the same. You may remember hearing about the storms in the Midwest and Southern states recently. Well one of our own, a blogger on the #MADMlinkup launch team has been deeply affected by the storm that hit her home in Alabama and it’s devastating aftermath ever since. This week, after hearing the latest update from her, my perspective is humbled and I’m convicted to learn more so that I can help in any way I can. I also hope to always remember to turn to the Lord first in prayer because even with faith the size of a mustard seed, the Lord can use that faith to move mountains! “Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” Galatians 6:2
