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 
  • Actions that encourages, supports or shares the love of Jesus.

Visited Welcome Home Refugee House and assisted with cleaning duties.

My grandmother is visiting my parents and sister, and my family is very stressed by the situation due to old hurts. I was able to encourage them and sit and pray with my mother for peace and love and forgiveness before my grandmother arrived. Am continuing to pray for them all.

On garbage days, especially when it’s windy, I pick up the garbage (Recycle, compost, non-recyclable) bins for my neighbours, after the trucks have passed through, and I get home, and put them on or near their front porches.

This week I made three visitations to bless others. 1] brought treats to bless the staff of a long term care home in memory 2] visited my deceased friend’s husband who has dementia and took him for a walk outside 3] visited and prayed over a long-time friend who has experienced God’s miraculous healing and recovery

Have been praying for some of the mums at my kids’ school and have let them know that I’ve been praying.

Prompted by God, I decided to participate in a Missions Trip.

My friend is going through a difficult time in her marriage and was looking for an escape. I encouraged her to keep a promise she had made a while ago to never run away and spend the night outside her home when things get rough. I truly feel her pain and will be praying for her.

I was honoured and blessed by a family in Welland who opened their house to me during the week to give me a relief from my daily driving from Welland to Waterloo.

I helped at WPA’s Canada Day celebration.

Helped a neighbour who is a single mom unload and put together a deck box

I gave laundry detergent & bounce sheets at the laundry mat when someone forgot theirs. 🙂

I talked to a coworker who doesn’t attend church anymore – the conversation came up really naturally, and I was able to hear her opinions about her church experience and then share authentically from my own experience at WPA!
