It has been an emotionally and mentally long week in many different areas of life. My phone buzzed and I glanced over with hesitation, feeling as though I didn’t have one ounce of inspiration or energy to encourage anyone else that day.
What I saw was a friend reaching out. I saw a message that someone was thinking about me and wanted to know how I was.
That message said much more than what was written in words.
It said that my friend loved me, that I was on her heart and she cared.
That messaged communicated that God loves me, He sees me, and He knows what I need when I need it.
I am a natural communicator which seems really funny to me since I am deaf. I have learned that this is how God works.
Many times He places people on my heart. Sometimes it is to call, other times to text or email, and still other times I go back to the old fashioned way of doing things and I send a card or a letter.
I can’t tell you how many times people have responded in awe at the timing.
God uses us as vessels to show His love and care for others. The question is will we be available? Will we take the time to do this?
I am incredibly grateful my friend reached out that day. I was in a very dry place and needed to know that I was loved and that someone cared.
I pray that I am always willing to be that vessel to impact those who work around me.
Ask God today how He desires you to be His vessel today. Ask Him how He wants you to love others for Him today. You will be surprised at how the smallest intentional action can make a big impact.
