The bones of this post have been rolling around in my head for a couple of weeks but I never seemed to “feel like” writing it. Until today when I saw that the Five Minute Friday prompt for today was “chance”, I knew that today was the day.
So here goes…
There was a time, a few years ago when we didn’t have a car and had to walk or depend on others for transportation. And then recently, I was given the chance to provide the same “service” for others. On one occasion, “Barb’s Taxi” transported a friend to an emergency doctor appointment. And then a few days later a distress call came from a young person who got injured while working out and was too far from home to make it safely.
God gave me the CHANCE to do unto others what had been done for me.
You never know the power in the words that you put out into the world. My 2022 word of the year is ENCOURAGEMENT. God has been challenging me to lift up others with honest feedback, handwritten notes, and spontaneous gifts. Some of the things God has asked me to do have been difficult. However, I knew that I had to just be bold, take a chance and obey.
I took a CHANCE and God blessed me with words of affirmation from those who have been on the receiving end of ENCOURAGING words from me.
Last week an unplanned-tag-team between a fellow blogger yielded amazing fruit.
I took a CHANCE in giving a small gift and it transformed a young mom’s well-being.
