This morning I woke up to an email from a friend who works at our church that answered a question that had been on my heart. How to use our home for Gods Glory. In years past, our home had housed interns who were working in our church for the summer. We had fed countless women and couples over the years who God had put in our lives for many different reasons. But now that we are living in a smaller home plus dealing with some health issues, we have felt that we had not been offering, not only our lives, but our homes as well to be used by God. Both Randy and I have been praying and thinking about how can we serve Him at this time in our lives! Other than the times when our families come together or a couple comes to gather together around the table with us for a meal, how can we offer our home to others? When a widow moved in behind our home, it dawned on me that I didn’t need to cook her a 4-5 course meal to be of help. Why couldn’t we just either invite her over to join us for dinner or if she was unable to come, just take her some of what we were having? No matter if it was just beans and cornbread! This past Sunday at church, talking to a friend who has been on a “no sugar” diet, I had mentioned to her that I wanted to have her over for dinner or make her her most favorite dessert to celebrate her bday but knew she wasn’t eating sugar! She proceeded to tell me that no matter the diet, if I made a chocolate cream pie, she would just run around the block an extra time in order to be able to have a piece! She told me “for a piece of your chocolate cream pie, I’ll run an extra mile”. It was then that it dawned on me!!! We don’t have to cook an elaborate meal or a whole cake to share with others to bless their day!!! Sometimes all they want is a piece of pie or cake or a bowl of homemade soup to feel loved on! Anytime you feel led to love on others with a simple act of kindness, don’t hesitate because you feel you aren’t doing enough. Scoop up that bowl of soup or beans, throw in a corn muffin or take a piece of cake or pie and they will feel loved on! Sometimes the simple things say more to them than what we feel is needed! God is pleased by our willingness and obedience rather than our desire to show what we are capable of! Friday I’m taking a piece of chocolate cream pie to my friend and maybe I’ll join her on the walk around the block!
