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

My friend received texts from someone she has been supporting with comments about not being around any more. We drove to the person’s place and provided prayer, comfort and contacted a professional to help ensure the persons safety.

Prayed with a young woman who had a difficult decision to make.

I delivered empty packing/moving boxes to Pastor Daniel.

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!

I stopped what I was doing to look a child in the eye and listened while she was talking to me even though I was busy.

I asked several colleagues how their days were going and stopped to really listen to their answers and engage with them.
