Making your life Counts through Jesus

Philippians 4:6 “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.”

Time after time, I would know what I want and would pray and the exact thing happens.

Well, tonight is no different.

For months I have been carrying the need of Camden because I have been exposed to the life and what goes on right below my very posh city Voorhees.

When I volunteered for a local government school in Berlin, I would have to go to meetings in Camden.  What is surprising is that the city is known for everything evil and corrupted and everyone seems to be OK with it. Moments in my quite time with the Lord, I would see myself teaching Sunday school and eating with the little children in Camden.

I often pray for a connection to get my foot in Camden to teach inner city children about the love of God.  I said if I do not find any connect I am just going to find a nearby open area and just go talk and pray with the people in the streets.

Earlier I did just that, drove my car into the city and prayed for divine appoints. Exactly that happened.

You cannot go to Camden and not be taken aback by the sadness that grips the city and the horror stories that the body images and the facial expressions tell.

Last month at our Prayer meeting with Pastor Timothy at the Ardmore United Methodist Church, he asked me if I know anyone who would need baskets for Thanksgiving. I thought about Camden.

Well, today the basket were ready and it was time to deliver them to the people we have prayed for.

My friends I tell you it was a real joy to see the expressions of hope and gratitude in the families’ eyes.

Often times we take it for granted that we have … but there is a world just next-door that does not have the necessities to get through the day.  Many times next door is not overseas.

We have a lot to be grateful for.

I thank God for his provisions for his people.  One woman by the name of Louis said, “Tonight’s act of kindness confirms God’s faithful to supply their basic needs.  She was ecstatic.

Again, no matter what the need is, God will make a way.  He is waiting to hear from you and ready to act in righteousness.

In the end, it all comes together.  Only what is done for Christ will last forever.

Ask yourself the question, where can I make a difference? What can I do to make my life counts for Jesus?

Start with praying and asking the Holy Spirit to reveal to you God’s will for your life and when it is revealed, be obedient and act swiftly.

Real joy and contentment is found when you actually find your purpose in Christ.

As always, please let us know how we can help pray for you.
