It is not always easy to be kind, in fact it takes a conscious effort to be kind. I have seen several kindness calendars around for the month of February since that is the month of national kindness week. I thought it would be neat to do one kind deed each day leading up to Valentines Day. We as Christians are called to be the light of the world and one way we do that is by being kind. Would you join me in this two week challenge? I am excited to do this even if it means going out of my comfort zone. Let's meet back in two weeks and share what we did to live out Ephesians 4:32, "And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you."
In a world where we can be anything, let us be kind!!
My mom sat in the doctor's office waiting to hear the results of the pregnancy test she had taken. He entered and told her that while there was a hint of the pregnancy hormone in her body he did not believe her to be pregnant, and then he handed her a prescription. When she asked what it was for he told her that it would help her get back to normal. Feeling a bit concerned my mom sought a second opinion. The second doctor told her that she was indeed pregnant and that if she had taken the prescription she would have aborted me. I remember hearing that story for the first time and letting those words sink in. I would not be here if my mom had not sought a second opinion. She tells me she is so glad she did and says she could not imagine her life without me. I am grateful for a mom who did not take a pill but listened to that quiet voice within. I am also grateful to see so many young people taking a stand for life; individuals boldly speaking the truth about life. May we all have the boldness to continue to take a stand and share the amazing news that we are valuable because He made us in His image.
I am just an ordinary girl who is loved by an extraordinary God and I seek to love others the same way. I love to bake, read, do puzzles, watch Hallmark movies, and go shopping with my mom! This blog was created as a place where I could share some thoughts that the Lord has shown me and to be an encouragement to others who desire to know Him in a deeper way. My prayer is to learn to sit still and trust God with my future.
