crazy, weird, UNIQUE!

What do you with your time?

Are you out to bless?

OR out to curse?

Are you out for others or only out for the benefit of yourself?

I ask myself this.  I have to adjust my thinking sometimes. I have to reconnect with reality and remember why we are put here.  God put us here to bless, live for others and share what we know about HIM.

I attended a SPARKLE Dinner tonight which is an event that my friend Tammy Whitehurst organizes.  She has this mission to help and encourage those who struggle.  She is such a blessing, because she knows what we are to do with our time.

The main focus with these dinners she puts together are to lift up those battling cancer.

As the speaker, Nathan Mathias, said tonight though–we all may not have CANCER, but we all have some type of struggle.

It could be anything.  We all struggle.  Everyone around you struggles with SOMETHING.

Nathan struggled with cancer with several months.  After battling, he is now cancer free.  This is not only awesome for him, but also his family and the numerous prayer warriors that feel the absolute victory with him.  It is a blessing when someone is cured and you see that they give all the glory to GOD.  Nathan truly lives out James 1:2–

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds,

He counts his struggles to all be JOY in our Lord.

And read on in verse 3…

because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.

Nathan will persevere, because he has been through the trials.  We all go through our trials, but Nathan faced his with GOD at all times.  We all need to remember this.

Nathan is going to use his story to help others.  He is going to use the strength he received through Jesus to encourage others to do the same.  He know what to do with his time.

Another man, Steve Denfeld, spoke tonight about his mission…to LOVE others.  He is a fireman that heads up the Pink Heals of Gregg County.  (please go check out thier page)  I was moved by the emotion he showed as he talked about just being able to show love for those in need.  He talked about how this organization is all about LOVE and not just about a cause.  They look at people in need and just love on them.  It was so great to hear about this organization.  This guy really knows what to do with his time.  LOVE!

I pray that I always do what I’m supposed to do with my time.

Bless, encourage, help and LOVE.
