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

A neighbour of mine was sharing with me that she wasnt sure what to make for supper because funds were low and i had just finished making a whole lot of fried chicken salad and vegetable soup. So i told her i would make a plate and she came over with her youngest daughter sat and ate. This made me feel so good because i as a single mother goes through the same thing on a monthly basis so doing this for someone else really felt good and i know my father in Heaven was pleased to know that even during my hard times i still made time to bless others.

I helped a person by rescuing their garbage can that was in the middle of street

Today, I hand wrote personalized notes with words of affirmation for each of my students.

Today I met someone by a bus stop and shared Jesus with them.

On Canada Day, we handed out 35 dozen bottles of iced cold water to 35 dozen thirsty people on a hot Canada Day (35 degrees C). We loved seeing all of the smiling faces. A lady really encouraged us when she told us that she could see in our faces that, like the Bible says “It’s more blessed to give than to receive.”

Met with someone over coffee to talk when they needed some extra support
