So i am not going to lie, I am a person who likes my bubble space. I am an introvert by nature and love that I have my own room that I can go to relax in.
Last night though, I did not have it. Because last night I shared my room with a friend who needed to get away from a rough situation.
This morning it hit me that this is what it is all about.
Life is not about making sure that you get your bubble space, life is about reaching out, being the hands and feet of Christ in a fallen world.
I love my sweet friend, and I hurt for what she is going through. I also know that I am not the only one who is hurting for her. God is too.
God brought us together for many reasons and this is one of them.
I am trusting God to get me to the land He called me to, not because I have physical proof that He will do so, but because I know that God loves us so much that He places us exactly where we need to be in order to reach those who need to hear his heart for them.
In a world that screams “It’s all about me” I am realizing that the truth is “It’s all about Him and his plans for me to reach out to others.”
So whether my friend stays another night, or fifty more, I am in. And I am excited to share the love of Christ with her, to be her soft spot to land in a harsh world.
There are many more that need the same, my prayer is that God will reveal one (or many) to you today.
As we reach out and lift others up, we will soon realize that God is lifting us up as well.
