It started snowing on Sunday, and for the most part it has continued to snow, with some sleet at times. It's supposed to end soon. It's a winter wonderland outside!
I've been thinking about a lot of things but this is one that has been in the for front of my mind. There are lots of pressures on our young people these days. Many young people I know are hard working and as they begin to marry and have families, financial pressures are on them. One young couple I know that farm, lost their barn to fire last week. One young family with small kids, is struggling with finances. Since Covid lockdowns hit, the husband has been mostly out of work. Lots of stress and pressure.
Let's all do what we can to walk along side these young couples. Let's physically help them, as well as financially help them when they have a need. Pray for the young people in your communities and see how God would have you be a help to them.
Sometimes helping requires sacrifice in some way, and we should be willing, if God is leading, to do without some comfort or convenience in order to help a young couple see God at work in their lives.
For we surely can be the hands and feet of Jesus. Of course it may not just be young people, though they've been on my mind. It might be an elderly neighbor, or someone at your church, or at work. Let's ask God how we can be a blessing to others.
