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

I donated 12 inches of my hair to support women through the Canadian Cancer Society.

Loaned the lawnmower to a neighbour that needed it.

I was able to financially support a university student who is going on a short-term mission’s trip to El Salvador in response to God’s missionary call on her life.

I did some cleaning at Welcome Home with some other WPA young adults.

At the grocery store a person in a wheelchair needed assistance, so I took the opportunity to stay with her and support her shopping needs.

My daughter felt that God was asking her to speak with someone in a specific spot but every time she went by no one was there. One day she was going by and there was a man sitting in the spot God told her about. She went over and shared the message God told her to tell him… All about how he wasnt alone God sees him and loves him. The man began to cry really cry and responded by saying that he has been feeling so lost and alone. He had a relationship with God that he lost some how and he thanked her over and over for sharing. He admired her courage. God is so so Good!! I am continually in awe of our creator. Who chooses to use us to reach others. He chooses to allow us let His light shine!

My son noticed a child at his school who was having a difficult time making friends. He asked the child to be his friend.

Someone in my team at work found out this week that she needs to go for another biopsy–after having just returned to work in December following radiation treatments. She said it’s harder this time since she knows what’s coming. I chatted with her and shared how I would be praying for her.

I spent some time with a widowed neighbor.

my young co-worker lost her mom, dad is ill and injured. She takes care of everyone at home, 24-7. I take her for lattes at lunch one or two times per week, we talk about lite stuff. I tell her she is doing a great job helping her family and that God sees her. He cares. I encourage her when I can and we are called the the “latte posse” at work. God has a sense of humour for sure.

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

I took a significant amount of time this summer to prepare to volunteer for Welcome Home. I had to get a police check, do an interview, file an application, and attend a training event. I am looking forward to being able to finally volunteer with them.
