Serendipity~

March 16, 2017

               One of the greatest joys in my life is being a part of Love Heart Ministries. The best part is the unexpectedness of it all.

Sometimes we start to think that life has somehow passed us by.  We’re stuck in a rut and really don’t see any chance for a change on the horizon. Just plain bored.

Are you convinced that the rest of your life will be exactly what it is today? Well, I’m willing to speculate that it won’t be.

If you are a Christian, are you available to be used by God no matter what He wants? He’s looking for a willing participant, and He knows your heart and what He’s gifted you with.

Yes, you have been gifted even though it may not feel like it…the gifts and abilities are there. It may help to do an inventory. What are you good at? What do you enjoy doing? What thrills you?

You might find out that you’ve got a lot more going for you than you think. And, Love Heart, just because you’ve never used that gift before doesn’t mean it’s expired!

Talk your life over with the Gift Giver. Ask Him exactly what it is that He would like you to pursue. He will make it known to you. Then, take my advice.  Fasten your seatbelt…it could be a wild ride! Gwen~

Like A Sore Thumb!

photoI have a friend that some people might believe sticks out like a sore thumb.  He has long white hair that he wears in a short pony tail and has a long beard to match.

His superior’s grumble about it at work and others have been known to make snide remarks.

What they fail to see is the reason behind his appearance.

“Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected  him.  The Lord does not look at the things man looks at.  Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7, NIV)

During the months of November and December, Charles is Santa’s Helper.  He is Santa personified!  He works every night and weekend bringing the joy of Christmas to hundreds of children and their families.

Some people would say this is a silly ambition, but we see Charles’s heart!  His love for the Lord overflows as he ministers to these children.

I bet that several prayers are said over these little ones as they share their dreams with this man of God.   th (2)

The next time you see someone that “sticks out like a sore thumb” remember, God uses ALL kinds of people to minister.  Those that are old, the very young, those with down syndrome, the poor, rich, deaf, crippled and even Santa Clause.

“In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for noble purpose and some for ignoble.  If a man cleanses himself from the latter, he will be an instrument for noble purposes , made holy useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.” (2 Timothy 2:20-22, NIV)

Love Heart, take your blinders off and see the work of God! ~Debra

The picture you see above is Charles and Gwen Fischer.  My friend and Co-Founder of Love Heart Ministries is married to Santa Clause!

thLord, may I use the talents and gifts you’ve given to me to make a difference to those I come in contact with everyday,

I don’t want to exist for the sole purpose of taking care of my family, my home, and work.  I want to actually have the mind of ministry -to make a difference to those around me and to do Your will.

Please move and minister through my life to accomplish Your will.  ~Debra

Yippee!
