We are on vacation this week (yay!), and had the pleasure of listening to a live sermon from North Point Community Church in Alpharetta, GA, from their website. They had a guest speaker this week with a powerful message titled, Just Be You, which I would strongly encourage you to watch.
With the Fourth of July around the corner, she spoke about heroes coming from within, just in who God created us to be, with whatever he has placed in our hands to use. It was a convicting message, leaving me thinking, what can I do? Like the staff of Moses, what has God placed in my hands, so to speak, that He has plans for me to use?
In this message, Strickland sites a story about Mother Teresa, telling a BBC reporter that you cannot blame poverty on God. Poverty is the result of God's children not wanting to share.
After listening to this sermon, in a search for more, left wondering what it might be that God has for me to use, I began looking up more about Mother Teresa. I found one particular quote from her that really stood out for this message today.
Often finding myself at a loss, wondering what my calling may be, this message and this quote spoke to me. The message was so powerful even my 2-year old was enthralled, and at one point, she turned to me and whispered in my ear, "Mommy, heroes use their hands!" Amen!
Want to know how God can use you? Be there. You don't need all the money, all the things, all the resources in the world. GOD is your resource, and He is greater than this world! God is your provider, and chances are, He has already given you the tools you need to be the hero someone needs. Be there. Love them. You don't have to be more than exactly who God made you to be.
