Listening to God’s voice
God speaks to us in numerous ways ; as in through other Christians , a strong feeling in your spirit , or through circumstances .
We have to remember to stay in God’s word , in a daily basis,. to get to know Him and being in prayer , by speaking and listening Him . Being in His presence, in the stillness , that’s when you can hear Him. God works in mysterious ways , that we may not understand .We need to keep trusting Him , He will answer our prayer in His perfect timing , even if doesn’t , its okay , because God knows what we need. Trust Him that He will answer the prayer in due time .. God knows what we need. He is our Father .
Before I finish writing , I want to tell you about one of my answered prayers . I prayed that my husband , would go to church with me . Time passed by , nothing had changed . Then one day I came home from church , I then went outside ,looking for my husband , found him on the back porch , when he looked at me and said, ” He wanted to start going to church , with me ” , I have to admit I was surprised ! , I knew it that is was God ,who had answered my prayer .
Sending a text with hope
Hello everyone! I want to talk about the second way to encourage others ,by texting someone . I know sometimes texting can be impersonal , but it’s about the words , that are spoken . A short caring text can make a big difference , in someone’s life .We never really know what people going through , in their daily life , that’s why those encouraging words can help , bring hope into their lives . People need to know that people care , that they are not alone . That we all have problems , even though they may be different . It’s definitely a reason to encourage others . The text could be an opening to a deeper conversation . The conversation can lead up to relief to that person , by letting them have a chance to open up ,and by telling them that Christ is ultimately ,the only One that can help us . He is the only One that can give unconditional love and peace .
So keep leaning on the Lord , stay in His Word and in prayer . We need to trust Him in this journey .
The true happiness of volunteering
One of the best ways, to keep yourself happy, is to volunteer . I volunteer at two non profit organizations . It makes me feel good that I’m helping people and it’s for a good cause . Which is awesome ! It can just be, a couple hours a week and it’s very flexible . Even if you work full time , you can always fit in your schedule . It has changed my life for the good , taught me a lot about myself . I love to live with purpose , to impact others in a positive way .
I started volunteering last year , knowing it was a calling on my life . We all have different callings in our life , but in my heart, I knew my calling was volunteering . We all know our gifts and talents are, as we grow in Christ .We need to use those gifts to make the world a better place . You can have a good impact in the workplace also , as in encouraging your coworkers and telling them their work is appreciated . So I hope I have given you some good ways to live a happy life .
