No Matter the Crisis
By Mary Lindow
“So we may boldly say: “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”” Hebrews 13:6.
How do we continue to love and serve
others when our ‘normal’ has been derailed?
Tragedy and suffering cry out for us to be creative in the way we rally to help one another.
“Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” (ESV).
God is our faithful Provider, Sustainer, and Healer. It’s from our faith and trust in His providence we reach out to love and help those in need.
No matter the crisis, He provides a way
for Godly and gracious love and compassion to keep circulating!
We help with what we have and where we’re at the moment, as the people God purposed us to be.
A simple and humble cup of cold water given to a weary traveler on the road of life is a much-treasured refreshment.
It’s doesn’t appear to be much to those who have no need of it,
but when you are parched or have no strength to draw a drink of water in the moment, a discerning person who understands your journey (because they have experienced it themselves) knows exactly how to help.
when given with compassion and authentic care, it’s like giving it to Jesus.
“Whoever gives a cup of cold water to one of my humble disciples, I promise you, he will not go unrewarded.”
In His Shadow,
