One At A Time

 From Christy Smith:

I recently went to Sunset Beach with my daughter, Leah. It was a wonderful time spent together at Leah's favorite place in the world. She loves everything about the beach and the ocean, and plans to study marine biology in college.

As we were walking along the shore, Leah became very aware of the marine life scattered on the sand by the low tide. She decided it was her mission to rescue those creatures "left behind" by returning them to the sea. One by one, whether it be tiny barnacles clinging to driftwood or unique blue button jellyfish, she carefully scooped them up, waded out a good distance and put them back in the water. Each animal she found was valued and cared for, no matter how small. The shoreline stretched for miles, but Leah only concentrated on helping one at a time.

Each of us has the capability of making a difference in someone's life with the help of Jesus Christ. He calls us to a life of helping others but many of us feel so completely inadequate that we resign ourselves to sitting instead of serving. Don't be afraid to step out and help just one person. God can do a lot with a little!

“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.” (D. L. Moody)

Blessings,
Christy Smith
