I read a post @ http://www.aholyexperience.com/2013/11/how-to-put-one-foot-in-front-of-the-other/
This is my favorite and I quote:
"a Thanksgiving that never moves into hands and feet and out into the world was never really Thanksgiving in the heart."
This speaks to me because we are the hands and feet of Christ but it is so hard to move out of my comfort zone. I hear Him calling me to move more every year into the world. Once my children are grown and I have fulfilled my calling in my home. I have ideas and I have prayed for direction I just haven’t figured it out yet. I can hear Him calling me to get more personally involved in people’s lives instead of serving behind the scenes were I feel comfortable. I look out into my community and see the need. There is a mission field just beyond my door. I don't feel the need to travel very far to find hurting people that are in need of a welcoming heart.
