Number five: Offer a hand

Philippians 2:4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.

Do you know someone who is experiencing trouble, hard times, or an illness? Offer a helping hand to her.

When I was pregnant (I had awful Hyperemesis during my pregnancies) it was such a huge blessing to have people bring meals for the family, offer to clean house, watch the boys or run errands for me. It encouraged my heart so much, and made me feel so loved.

Do you know someone who would love a meal, a ride, or an offer of help? How about a gift card to a restaurant for a family practically living in a hospital because of an ill or hurt loved one?

Think outside the box and offer a helping hand to someone.

I’d love to hear what ideas you come up with! Please share!

God bless,

PS I just saw this this morning and it encouraged my heart, so I had to share it. This is exactly what I’m talking about! So thankful for the Body of Christ for how they helped to encourage and bless Raquel and her family!

JennAbout Jenn: I’m a Christian wife to an amazing man (since 1998) and a stay-at-home-teaching mom to four special & incredible boys (born in 2004, 2005, 2007, & 2009). I’m messy and cluttered, but working on that (really, I am!). I’m a discouraged perfectionist and a classic procrastinator who probably has both ADD & Autism, so I tend to jump from topic to topic (and activity to activity) without notice. My Love Languages are Words of Affirmation and Physical Touch. I’m an INFP who enjoys friends but loves to be alone. I love getting and giving hugs, and encouragement is a Spiritual gift of mine that can too-easily be turned into the weapon of discouragement, if I’m not careful. I enjoy writing, singing, words, drawing, photography, digital creations, and reading. Oh, and pizza, tacos, and steak. Now I’m hungry. That reminds me; I eat gluten free and try to eat organic and avoid white sugar and GMOs as much as possible.  Find me on Facebook (Writer/Editor page) (Fan page), Twitter, Pinterest, or Instagram.
