Reaching one person at a time can give hope and love to the hurting. Many times when we are hurting, others don’t know how to reach out and give hope or support. Through one of these crafts, or even a plate of cookies with a kind word and a bible verse, you can bring some sunshine into their world and let them know they are not alone and God cares.
Don’t worry about how small or insignificant it may seem to you or scoffers. In our current age of cell phones, computers, and instant solutions on TV shows, we have set aside the value of face to face time, an ear to listen, and a hug.
We can’t change the world overnight, but we can start with one person. See who you can lift up today or next week. I started with the ‘Be Still, Let God’ bracelet. I carry some in my purse with the bible verse and let God prompt me along the way. It’s a simple way to start talking about Jesus and how your life has changed and offer hope to others.
You don’t have to have all the answers or explain why, just listen and let them know they are not alone and Jesus loves them.
