It's a God Thing

Edward Everett Hale says... "I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do." 

    As a member of my local church body, I like to feel as if I can contribute something with my heart to serve.  I could easily take a back seat with excuses of what I can't do but that serves no purpose.  'It's a God thing' to have the ability and resource of my laptop to distribute information and/or prayer requests each month to fellow church members.
    We are each only one, but together we are a solid unit of one.  My friend went to Alaska this past month and the guide said if the bear seems on attack then you all form a link together with your arms to be one solid mass.  That's how we should pull together as Christian brothers and sisters against the force of the evil one.  We are only as strong as our weakest link, so pull together everyone and do your part.


  1. Good analogy. Mom

  2. And you are a big one; I don't think you realize how big, and I hope it stays that way. God can use you better that way.

  3. You are a MAJOR contributor, Angie....not only to your church body but to so many others as well, including me. So very thankful every day for your wise words and encouragement, yes even the exhortation...maybe especially the exhortation...for that is where we learn the most. So glad my arm is linked with yours...that makes me oh! so much stronger in Christ! Joys shared, sorrows divided! Love you, T.

  4. CAn't think of anyone I'd rather circle up with than you, my friend! Thanks for all your prayers on our behalf...

  5. Your word is so true. One of the reasons I go to church is found in Heb.10:26. But another is that my presence (and some times that's all I manage to do) could encourage someone else. Or someone may be able to encourage me. We are to do this until Jesus comes again; encourage each other, building up one another in the Body of Christ through the local church with the gifts He has given to each of us.
    I hope you are well and enjoying this day the Lord has given you. Love, grace
