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

I helped at a women’s conference when it was needed on May 4 and 5. Needs included: kitchen duties, serving, moving and organizing furniture.

Offered to help a lady with a heavy bag at the grocery store.

I donated my old bike to the church so they could give it to someone who needed one.

On the 24th, I joined the young adults group to hand out WPA Canada Day fliers around the community!

My mom is in a long term care facility, and one time when I went to visit her, she was still in the dining room, so I knelt by her and talked to her until she was ready to go back to her room. A woman at another table kept calling for the staff to take her apron, but they were too busy, so I went over and took it and put it on the table and she asked me where her room was. I said, Well what’s your name?” and her answer was “I don’t know”. I laughed and said “Well, this puts me in a bit of a bind,.” Suddenly she said “June, my name is June.” I brightened up and said “My birthday is in June. I Love your name.” We got to talking a little bit about her lunch and then a helper came to whisk her away and thanked me over and over for my kindness and I went back to mom’s table. I may not have done much, but for awhile June felt loved and appreciated, and I was once more reminded that it isn’t the big things that count, but the little ones. Good lesson for me.

I was feeling worried and upset and someone at our church felt to call me and say God wants you to know He has got this no matter what happens.

Bought 50 timbits for my coworkers before I finished my shift (they still had another 4 hours to go) 👍🏿

I donated $10 for cancer research institution

Sent a co-worker 2 songs we’re singing in service this week because I thought they would encourage her (she was intrigued by the lyrics).

We talked with a couple from Newfoundland about Jesus and told them Jesus loves them and wants a personal relationship with them.

Today I bumped into one of my classmates from my compilers class. I told him that I wanted to introduce him to my best friend Jesus. (It turns out that he was a Christian to begin with!)
