This month at PWC we will be studying the story of Ruth and her willingness to reach out beyond her comfort zone to touch the lives of others. Ultimately we want to ask ourselves, “What can I do to reach out and touch others?” I thought the following excerpt from Henri Nouwen’s Bread for the Journey offers a wonderful reminder that we can’t solve all the world’s problems, but we can do something.
Our Unique Call
“So many terrible things happen every day that we start wondering whether the few things we do ourselves make any sense. When people are starving only a few thousand miles away, when wars are raging close to our borders, when countless people in our cities have no homes to live in, our own activities look futile. Such considerations, however, can paralyze and depress us.
“Here the word ‘call’ becomes important. We are not called to save the world, solve all problems, and help all people. But each of us has our own unique call, in our families, in our work, in our world. We have to keep asking God to help us see clearly what our call is and to give us the strength to live out that call with trust. Then we will discover that our faithfulness to a small task is the most healing response to the illnesses of our time.” – Nouwen
…So we must ask, what is my call? I encourage you to consider the gifts and talents God has given you and pray for direction as to how you can use them to reach out and help others. And yes, that may mean stepping out of your comfort zone.
One thing each of us can do is pray. This month, I want to encourage you to pray for the missionaries in Asia. Go to www.gfa.org/women to learn more about women who are serving Christ in Asia.
