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

From the third floor of a builiding, I saw a young lady that passed out on the street and nobody stopped to help her. I ran outside to check up and assisted with that to find that she fainted and was dehydrated.

My sister, who is not currently in relationship with God, found herself in the hospital last week due to stress. I called her and reminded her that God is looking out for her. I told her that I’d been praying for her and that I’ll continue to do so. She said she really appreciated the call and acknowledged that God certainly was looking out for her.

I got together with a girl at my university who I knew was struggling and searching for truth. I was able to extend friendship to her and show her that I care. She knows about my faith and when the conversation came to my music preferences, I was able to tell her that I love worship and Christian music.

I love the song “You Say” by Lauren Daigle. I have sent a link to that song to four people that I thought could use this encouragement and positive affirmation in their lives.

At the beginning of the school year at the parent-teacher meet the teacher event, our family heard of a family struggling to get their daughter to school, in the morning. Since, the father works overnight shifts. The kids are not eligible for school bus because of the rules around French Immersion. Without knowing where this family lives, we immediately felt the need to help and offer the ride. As a family, we committed to make a difference in this other family’s situation. We wake up earlier and drive extra time out of our way to school everyday to pick one grade 7 student up to take her to school in the morning. She is happy and we are blessed to be helpful.
