You not only notice the person standing on the street corner holding a sign asking for help, you have compassion for them. You are the person who brings the child of another person into your home and treats them as if they were your own flesh and blood. You use your resources, like time and money, to invest in people who are in need.
You engage with people who are hurting and broken knowing that it is going to get messy. You are the one who uses your vacation time to travel to places so you can share Jesus with people who might otherwise never hear about Him.
Even though you are that person, you don’t always know what to do. Some days you need encouragement. Other times you look for inspiration.
Why do you live life like this?
You understand that you are His ambassadors. He didn’t create you, then redeem you so that you could live your life the way you want. You know you are sent.
You are His Hands. His Feet.
My hands can selfishly toil for my own interests. They far too often remain stuffed in my pockets when someone needs a helping hand. My feet can stumble. They can wander.
Yet ever since I was a youth, I knew He had a purpose for me. Over time I understood that just as God sent His son into this world, he sends me. God chooses to send us, broken vessels that we are, to the poor, the brokenhearted, and those who are far from Him.
I have found that what continues to inspire me, what motivates me, what gives me life, is association with others who have this similar passion. Whether it’s over a meal, or through a story, or on a podcast, or even serving side by side, experiencing how God uses another persons gifts and talents to accomplish His mission always gives me life.
His Hands. His Feet.
I plan to make this the new name for this website and upcoming podcast (launching this Fall!).
Let me know what you think about this website and podcast name—His Hands. His Feet. Sent to the Fatherless, the Brokenhearted, and Those Far From Him.
My hope is that this blog, the upcoming podcast, the books, and courses that I am creating inspire and motivate you to live life like this.
I am excited about the content that you will get on the podcast. You will hear from foster/adoptive families, local ministry/nonprofit leaders, international missionaries, regular people who live a generous, sent life, and many others.
Upcoming Book Launches
I am also working on two books—Parenting with Connection and Shame Undone: Men’s Struggle with Shame. The launch date for the first one is October 2016. And the launch date for Shame Undone is January 2017.
