12 Ways to Turn Your Pain into Praise

Sapphires from Psalms

Better Than Jewels

 LET YOUR HEART BREAK.

“The world is full of what seems like intractable problems. Often we let that paralyze us. Instead, let it spur you to action. There are some people in the world that we can’t help, but there are so many more that we can. So when you see a mother and her children suffering in another part of the world, don’t look away. Look right at them. Let them break your heart, and let your empathy and your talents help you make a difference in the lives of others. Whether you volunteer every week or just a few times a year, your time and your unique skills are invaluable.” Melinda Gates is a co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

What a great perspective! I don’t know where this compassionate lady’s drive comes from.  But her heart and her goals greatly impress me. She has the desire and the financial resources to help others.

My passion to help other people comes from the help Christ has offered me.  And with His empowerment, I am able to make a difference in the lives of other people. It is such a blessing to be used as His hands and feet.  It fills our tank while we’re filling others. What is the Lord prompting you to do to make a difference?
