Serving others

I just wanted to make a short post about the disabled ministry. I know I talk them about them a lot but they have become an important part of my life and volunteering in this group has been a life changing experience for me. When I feeling down and worthless; I think of the fact that I making a difference in this world; simply by being kind and giving my time and heart to this group. I also am happy to meet fellow Christians who have Jesus in their lives who are kind and understanding and most importantly they don’t seem judgmental; they have welcomed with open arms when I felt so unwelcome in many other places.

Today my stomach was bothering me and I was volunteering but I decided to go home but I did help set up for this lunch that we serve for the community. While I was helping with the lunch; one of the young adults walked up to me and handed me a piece of paper and said “I colored this for you”.  It was a very sweet gesture and I was touched that she gave me that; it means that I am having an impact on them; that I mean something to the group. It may seem small to someone else but to me it’s a big deal to me. I mean, only do I impact them but they impact me as well. I feel God is giving me a purpose and I am grateful and blessed every time I am around them. The world is a cold place and not everyone is nice but I always feel needed when I am the ministry; that is important to me.  That’s all I have to say. I will end by saying the only way to help ourselves to help others. Find a way in your community to serve others and you’ll see how much your life will change for the better. Take care, friends

  2. Have you read Henry Nouwen’s writings about living in L’Arche? I just read you for the first time and don’t know if you have written about his earlier in your blog.

      1. Nouwen was a Christian theologian who taught at Harvard and left to live at L”Arche, a community in Toronto for the mentally disabled. Very moving.

  3. I appreciate your thoughtful mind. Only few people have the calling to serve others. I was raised in a Christian family. I didn’t realize how important faith was until I faced depression and anxiety few years ago. I still go through it some day’s, but I feel a lot better reading the word of the God every morning I wake up. What made feel even better when I decided to set a better purpose in life. I started making small changes in myself like fixing my attitude, having more gratitude towards family and friends. Mostly, it was helping out community of local immigrants and refugees.
