Devotionals Fearing The Big Picture
A couple years ago when the elections were happening, I went through a period of time where I felt depressed every time I went on Facebook or watched the news. It felt like no option was a good option and all there was, was bad news and accusations on every side of the coin. It caused me to start living in fear. Fear of the future, fear for my children, fear for my freedoms.
At that time I felt like I heard God say to me “Why are you trying to look at the big picture? Only I can see the big picture. I put you exactly where I want you and I’m going to use you there. You don’t have to worry about everybody else and what they’re doing. You just worry about what I have for you to do.”
Well, I knew that GiveSendGo was something that God had for me to do, and it was amazing to see my perspective change as I started looking at closely at the Givers, Senders and Goers using the site. I started to notice exactly what GiveSendGo was being used for. Ordinary people all over the world making a difference. They were raising money to impact their communities, their churches, their neighbors and friends, they didn’t let worry about world politics or how it was all going to end stop them from doing what God was calling them to do in the moment, and they were making a difference.
This year already on GiveSendGo, we have seen thousands of people utilizing our platform to spread the Hope of Jesus. There is good being done in the world. There is hope being shared, despite what we hear in the media. It is happening when people like you and I, in our own little circles of life, decided to step out and make a difference. Sometimes that calls for raising money to meet a physical need, so Hope can be shared, such as with these few campaigns :
Here is Emily on an incredibly life changing journey. So many of her friends and family who could not be the one to "Go" right now are supporting her, many with recurring monthly donations: https://www.givesendgo.com/fromsactogreece
Here is a campaign raising money for a family dealing with a tragic death, and the body of Christ joined in to raise over $20,000. https://www.givesendgo.com/NickDehmer
Or this campaign for a Christian ministry start up wanting to provide assistance to families who would like Christian education for their children. https://www.givesendgo.com/dollarperchristian
It was hard to pick just a few. There are hundreds more campaigns like these on GSG, and it is so exciting to join in and be used to be the hands and feet of Jesus to a world needing a little Help and Hope.
