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.

Drove a friend to church for 2 months from out of town 👍🏿

I spent time sharing my personal journey of dealing with certain challenges with a colleague is going through a tough time right now.

Treated two friends to the “Annual Potluck Salad Supper”.

I gave an elderly lady a ride home last week when it was very hot outside. She was at a shopping centre in the evening asking people for help. I asked what she needed and she just replied ‘a ride home’.

Bought a meal for a homeless person. I asked if he wanted it first and got his name.

This week I volunteered at st johns kitchen

I had the opportunity to distribute some flyers about Jesus to some of my neighbours! Praise God!

A friend at work shared that he needed a small piece of wood for a hobby – I brought something for him the next day and he was very thankful.

This evening as we pulled into Starbucks we saw a young lady walking, carrying shopping bags, and a large mirror on her back. She looked tired. We stopped her to find out if she was heading home. She had walked from St. Jacob’s to Waterloo and was going to continue walking to her home in Kitchener. We were able to offer her a ride and a cold drink. We learned she had just moved here from another province. She knows no one and is looking for work. We will be lifting her up in prayer that she will find work. Thankful we could help to welcome her to her new hometown.

I returned someone’s lost bus pass to the bus driver.

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.

This morning, on our way to church, we noticed a man walking on the on ramp to the highway carrying a gas can. We stopped and asked him if he needed a lift. He was thrilled that someone noticed and gladly hopped in. We brought him where he needed to go and he was so grateful. Cool to be able to lend a helping hand in such a small yet significant way.
