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

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.

I invited a new family from church over for dinner.

I send a friend a scripture that I knew would be meaningful to her as she was going through a really tough time.

Gave a donation to a single mother asking for money at the groceries store

A member of our small group contacted me on Monday night stressed, because they didn’t know how to complete the payroll due at the end of the week. I listened and gave some advice. We prayed for help. On Tuesday I followed up, and it didn’t seem to be going much better, but they explained the difficulty they were having in more detail. I realized I knew exactly what they needed to fix the problem. Later that day I went to their office and showed up with a coffee. I spent about 5 minutes there and gave them some tips. Today (Wednesday – time stamp below) I got the following messages: – I am in my last process of payroll. (11:47) – Release in the bank and send pay stubs … all because of your help(11:48) – My prayers were answered and God provided help (12:27)

This week a neighbour asked my advice because one of her children give her the hardest of times. She had said to me she was so tired. She is also muslim. So i gave her her some advice on what i do with my children and i also let her know she isn’t alone and that i go thrpugh similar things that she does with her son. And i let her know id pray for her and her family and she was relieved when i said that. I also told her that i pray over my children daily and trust that God will instill in them obedience. She said she is just tired but she will male time to make dua for her children.

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.

I went and bought lunch for a co-worker who had to work through their lunch. He wouldn’t have gotten to eat if I hadn’t brought food for him.

Had a few friends over the night before our last exam so that they wouldn’t have to worry about cooking and could unwind a little bit before that final push. Allowed me to have great conversations about Christ and the gospel with them.

Planned and ran a kids camp for a professor at Laurier. Had the amazing opportunity to spend a week with an adorable group of children.
