Have you ever seen a stray dog with ribs showing and thought God please take care of that precious animal...or maybe you're one of those few that threw food out a good piece from your home to help but not be burdened with a stray animal taking up at your home....but just how many of us are willing to put ourself out to help a stray animal....some folks say I'll get my gun and solve this problem.....and some call their local animal shelter to handle the problem...isn't it much easier to expect God or other folks to do the good deed rather than self?
I have a sister who goes that extra mile to help any living creature be they of two legs or four without one single thought of self....her sight is upon the need to help anyway that she can....she's well known for having a heart the size of Texas and a brain the size of a mustard seed by folks that know her well...Some say she doesn't think of tomorrow...only of today...but she says that she takes one day at a time doing her best with perfect faith that God will do the rest....
She noticed a pitiful mother dog who had made a home in the thicket to birth her puppies....not on my sister's land...but that of her neighbors....my sister kept taking food to the mother dog until she gained her trust and was able to move the mother and five puppies to her land....So easy to deem her a fool to take on a burden of a mother dog and five puppies....but it hit me hard.....what are you doing Nancy?....Why, I'm sitting in judgement Lord...I'm here to find fault with my sister who is doing something to help while although I claim it does break my heart on the poor animals situation...I sit back and do nothing....I simply can't get involved....would be too much of a heavy load upon me.....but which of us...my sister and I is God most pleased with? which one of us dares to care without thought of SELF? .....So easy to get wrapped up in SELF....striving to meet the needs of self and most of the wants too....but it takes a special kind of human being that is willing to give their all when they see a need....I'm quite positive that God knows well just how great of a job I've done in meeting my needs & wants.....I'm sure that He gets the picture on just how much I love me.....but is that what my purpose here on earth is all about? Who and what we love most will be clearly seen via your actions or lack of actions....There is a wonderful message to ponder upon....What does God think about me when He thinks about me....does He see an unselfish heart most willing to go that extra mile plus more to give a helping hand or one that will give as long as it's no hardship to us? God bless you my sister for your heart is doing His will for all of His creatures that you happen upon in your walk of life...I love you : ))
