Be a Point of Light

1000 Points of Light is an intentional initiative created to help us shift our perspective and open our eyes to the everyday opportunities that God sets before each and every one us.
Between May and September, our hope is to make 1000 intentional points of light in our community and around the world. 
A point of light is any action that shares the love of Jesus by encouraging, supporting, praying, loving, or giving to someone in need that day.
So whether you, encourage a stranger, help your neighbor, support a co-worker, pray for a family member or lead someone in making a life changing decision to follow Jesus Christ, do it with intentionality and purpose, knowing that you are being a light in the darkness. 
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it. 
John 1:5

John 1:5


When I was about 14 years old I was attending my home church in Parry Sound when the service ended everyone was leaving. I was waiting for the family I was living with to finish what they were doing when I noticed a woman sitting alone in the pews. Something inside me told me to go to this woman and just sit with her, so I did. I sat with her and I spoke with her. She was having a hard time and we sat, we prayed, we hugged and we cried together. Every Sunday after that we would make a point to see one another and speak and hug as we did that day. We are still in contact to this day and although we aren’t close to one another anymore, we send each other virtual hugs and continue to pray for one another and support each other from afar. I had the blessing to be invited to her wedding a few years after we met and it was the most wonderful and joyous time I had ever had.

Instead of brushing off a really needy person in my life, I intentionally responded to all of their texts and was very present in the conversations. It took up a lot of my weekend but she was thankful for the support.

I shared the gospel with someone who is 14. I asked her what she would like to studybwhen she goes to university…evolution of man was her answer…. What a leeway. I shared with her the purpose of her life in light of the cross. She was open. I pray holy spirit will draw her in.

My Husband and I picked up a man on the side of the road, who had run out of gas for his car. We were able to drive him back to his car. He was very thankful that people were kind enough to stop and give him a ride.

Helped out a stranger

Made a shopping trip for a lady who could not do it herself.

Guest teacher in Powersource explaining the Parable of the Sower.

I offered to buy my colleague coffee as they were exhausted before we were set to give a presentation.

I prayed with a friend for her to receive the Holy spirit. She has been searching for his power to be evident and doesn’t seem to feel like she can get access. I continue to pray.

Had a few classmates over for a Hot Pot dinner! It was a great opportunity to get to know one another and to build relationships that by God’s grace will lead to future discussions!

On Tuesday Aug 28, I went to campus for a meeting and saw a colleague who looked sad, unlike herself. I asked if she was okay and she said she was but I was not convinced. I went to my meeting, and another task after that. Then I went looking for her. I almost didn’t because I felt I needed to get back home to my children. I found her and she still looked very sad but said she was all right. I believe the Holy Spirit convinced me to persist so I just sat and chatted lightly with her and in time, she felt able to share how worried she was because her sister in India was having serious health challenges. She was actually in tears. She is not a Christian but I sat with her (for three hours as it turned out!), encouraging her to not be afraid because God loves her sister and her and would heal her, if we asked in faith. I asked her if I could pray with her and she agreed. I held her hands and prayed. After I could see her countenance had brightened. I pray that my time with her is a seed the LORD will use to bring her and her family to Himself.

Friday Night Small Group

Last night some vermin got into my neighbors garbage. This morning I noticed it had been spread on his driveway, so I picked it up for him.
