over the past couple of weeks my church has begun on a journey of discovering and learning more about the Holy Spirit. this past week at our small group of all girls we began to discuss how to adequately communicate with the Holy Spirit, we all kind of revealed that we were slightly scared to hear what He would tell us to do or where He would tell us to go.
i think that is where christians miss the mark, fear sets in and we sell ourselves short of what God intended for us.
so today i am hoping you will be inspired by some people and some blogs that are changing the world by living a set-apart life right here is the states. they are changing the lives of children and people thousands of miles away.
stray dog designs : based out of chattanooga tennessee this highly successful home design company makes fun and whimsical decor out of recycled material, but more importantly than any cute litte lamp that they create, they help give jobs to the people of haiti and mexico.
147 million orphans: i have talked about this organization before, i am truly inspired by theses women from brentwood tennessee who have made their life mission to help the orphans of this world. when you buy one of their awesome t-shirts you are helping feed a child for a week. they have just released their fall 2010 designs and let me tell you, they are the softest shirts EVER not too mention you will be giving their company great publicity to help orphans every where in the world. read their blogs here.
orphaned no more: this is the story of one families journey to bring their adoptive child home. they are trying to sell 3,000 bracelets to make the adoption payments so they can bring isabella home. it is a beautiful story and a moving campaign for sweet isabella. the bracelets are super cute too.
"...once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act."
“every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD your God which He has given you.”deuteronomy 16:17
these are just a few of many wonderful people "being the change they wish to see in the world"
i hope you are inspired by the Holy Spirit today, that is my prayer for you.
