Written Five Years Ago . . . for This Very Day

I wrote the following piece five years ago. How eerie it is and perfectly right for exactly how I am feeling again today:

There has been death and disease striking many people around me. I have been feeling like I am not doing enough to help them because all I have really been able to do is pray.

This morning I asked God to show me how I could help them. He led me to read Romans 12 and Romans 12:15 jumped right off the page at me: “Rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep.” It was a reminder to me that everyone has a spiritual gift that God uses at the appropriate time.

Service is not mine and I was reminded of that. However, I can pray confidently knowing that those who have this gift our serving those who need it right now. In the meantime, I will weep with those who weep, rejoice with those who rejoice and continue steadfastly in prayer.
