**UP FOR THE WEEKLY CHALLENGE? IF EVERYONE GOT INVOLVED WE COULD DONATE 176,350 ITEMS!!


Happy Sunday morning everyone!! I love to see the results of this challenge every week. I just know we can do amazing things all for the glory of God, but we ALL HAVE TO JOIN TOGETHER. The challenge is simple, but the impact is LIFE CHANGING for many!! This is such an easy way to be a part of something "HUGE", so here is my challenge for ALL of you this week!! My prayer continues to be that everyone will accept it and do “something”. As of this morning we had 4529 "LIKES" on our FACEBOOK PAGE, but over 2525 people that have read and/or visited the blog this week. That is 111 “LIKES” than last week. I am asking EVERYONE that takes the time to look at this blog or has “LIKED” us on FB to please accept this challenge. This is such a tangible way of helping our communities and start changing lives . . . one at a time. All YOU NEED to do is pick up 5 extra items this week and donate to a local food pantry, a shelter, or a family that you know that is in need. None of us can help EVERYONE, but ALL OF US can help SOMEONE, and when we help them, WE SERVE JESUS!! If all 4418 people on the FB page did that, that is 22,645 items being donated that is over 555 more from last week. THANK YOU JESUS!! I have listed several FREE items below, thus meaning it is NOT costing you any money, just your time to go shopping and most of us will already be shopping. Just think of the impact we can have on our communities. Now if you add all the people who have visited the blog to that number, total number of items being donated would be 35,270 items!! We all have to join together and do something "small" (our 5 items) and the end result is "HUGE". Again, make it one better than that and each of you challenge 5 of your friends to take the challenge on or ASK THEM TO POST THIS TO THEIR FB PAGE and now the donations increase to 176,350 items. God can take our donations, bless them, and use it to touch many!! God wants us to bring what we have to HIM. Please prayfully considering joining us in this mission. ALL THE GLORY GOES TO GOD AND GOD ALONE!!


SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT!!

I have heard it said, "I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. What I can do, I ought to do. What I ought to do, by the grace of God, I will do."

One godly man or woman can make a dramatic difference, even in the darkest of circumstances. Jesus put it this way: "You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it useful again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless. You are the light of the world—like a city on a mountain, glowing in the night for all to see. Don't hide your light under a basket! Instead, put it on a stand and let it shine for all. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father." (Matthew 5:13 NLT)

Our Lord is telling us that we, like salt, should make a difference in the situations we are in. Just as a little salt can either improve or worsen the flavor of something, a little influence can go a long way.

You might be the only Christian in your family . . . or the only Christian in your workplace . . . or the only Christian in your classroom . . . or the only Christian in your neighborhood. In fact, you may be trying to get out of an uncomfortable situation in which you find yourself.

But you may have been put there by the Lord to be an influence and, in a godly way, to move people in the right direction. God can do a lot with a little ~ YES, EVEN ONE!!

It is the POWER OF ONE. Our lives can make a difference. In Ezekiel 22:30 God says, "I looked for someone who might rebuild the wall of righteousness that guards the land. I searched for someone to stand in the gap in the wall so I wouldn't have to destroy the land, but I found no one" (NLT).

God is looking for that ONE who can make his or her mark.

You may be the only Christian whom some people will ever know. The fact is that God can do a lot with a little.

If you don't believe me, just ask that boy who was willing to share his lunch one day and saw Jesus feed 5,000 people, plus women and children, with his little meal. Or spend some time in the Book of Exodus, where you'll find the story of one man who lived such a godly life that, for all practical purposes, he kept two-and-a-half million people from turning to full-tilt idolatry. His name was Moses.

God is just looking for one—someone like you, someone like me. Will you be that one person?

Would you be willing to do what you can, where you are, with the influence that God has given you? Never underestimate the power of one.

Don’t think my donations don’t matter or they are only 5 items, such a small thing. The number ONE is a huge number is God’s vocabulary. I pray you all see the impact you can have on our communities . . . ALL FOR THE GLORY OF GOD!!

Follow us on our FACEBOOK PAGE to keep up with all the amazing things God is doing in our communities!




God does big things with small deeds so discount the smallness of your deeds. Against a towering giant, a brook pebble seems futile. But God used it to topple Goliath. Compared to the tithes of the wealthy, a widow’s coins seem puny, but Jesus used them to inspire us. Small deeds can change the world. . . one community at a time. God empowers the tiny deed.

Proverbs 11:25 “The generous soul will be made rich, and he who waters will also be watered himself.:

The amazing thing in the story about the Feeding of the Five Thousand is how the miracle was done. God could have done it any way He wanted. It could have rained bread from heaven. But He did it through natural means. The supernatural worked through the natural.

Jesus told the disciples to have the multitude break into groups of 50 and 100. Then the Bible tells us, "And when He had taken the five loaves and the two fish, He looked up to heaven, blessed and broke the loaves, and gave them to His disciples to set before them; and the two fish He divided among them all" (Mark 6:41). The disciples kept distributing the food, and it multiplied as they gave it out.

Jesus said, "Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you" (Luke 6:38). God will bless generosity. Proverbs 11:25 says, "The generous soul will be made rich, and he who waters will also be watered himself."

As we give, God will bless us. As we distribute, God will give us more. Matthew 14:20 offers this detail about the Feeding of the Five Thousand: "So they all ate and were filled, and they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments that remained." Jesus gave them more than they needed. And this reminds us that we serve a generous God.

Are you willing to pass on what God has given you? Or, are you trying to hold on to it all? As the disciples distributed the food that God had multiplied, everyone was blessed. Everyone had their part. God gives us gifts. We need to use them for His glory.

I want everyone to know when I post my weekly challenge it is definitely not to boast about what is being done, because without CHRIST in the center of it, it will NOT be blessed. My whole purpose of uploading pictures and showing the “HARVEST” is so everyone can see how your "small" donation multiplied abundantly into a ‘HUGE” donation because WE ALL came together to make a difference, so YOUR 4 DONATIONS DO MATTER!! This is truly only something God could do and it was a pretty simple thing to do!! I also want to make people aware of the TREMENDOUS need in our communities for hygienic items. These items are not covered on food stamps and when we give those items they bless people beyond what you could ever imagine. I know. . . I was one of "those" people before. I lived it and lived through it and my mission is to make a difference in someone's life everyday, NOT to get credit, but because that is what God tells us to do. We should not give expecting someone to act a certain way when we give them a gift, but we should give because we are really giving to Christ!! Matthew 25:40.

What makes a gift great in God's service is not the magnitude of the gift, it is into WHOSE HANDS the gift is given. Let's give these gifts and trust God to multiply them and change our communities. . . one life at a time. It is that simple with coupons and Christ. I am so excited to see what God has planned this week for our communities. WE CAN ALL DO IT TOGETHER!! Anyone up for the challenge?

I am so excited to see how many of you complete the challenge. PASS THE BLESSING ON and let’s change our communities. . . one life at a time!!
GOD IS GOOD. . . ALL THE TIME!!
