PROMPT May 16th

What do you do to make the world a better place?

The world is a better place just because I am in it. Lol I really hope that is true though. I do want the world to be a better place because Iam in it.

I try to make it better by being kind to others. I help people when I have the ability to do so when I see they need help. I try to be a marvelous friend. I tend to draw in those less fortunate. I try to love others the way God loves me.

On WDC, I do a few different things. I offer to pray for those who need it. I write a new Bible study every week. I pray others are blessed by the things I write. I can be painfully blunt at times, but it is truly because I care. If I say it, I intend to mean it. Why waste my energy on something I don't mean?

I have spent a good part of my life taking care of others. I helped care for my grandmother, an aunt, a cousin, and friends. I have lost jobs to help others. I cared for my best friend’s mom when she was sick with cancer. I helped take care of her nieces and nephews. I have cared for elderly acquaintances. I now care for my best friend. I am starting to feel like I need someone to care for me though, lol.

I try to encourage and inspire others. I give compliments to strangers. I look for opportunities to make a difference in someone else's life. There are opportunities every day if we just look for them. I have paid it forward. I have given water to a person on the street just because they asked for it. You have to be willing to help others when they need it. I give and except nothing in return knowing my Father in Heaven has my back.

I try not to whine too much or complain. I try to keep negativity to myself. Everything we do has some kind of impact on others rather we are aware of it or not. I try to keep this in mind. It is so easy to get wrapped up in your own feelings and forget that there are others around you.

I try to be a light in a dark world. I want to see others accept Christ as their Savior. I want to help others grow in their relationship with God. I want to see God work in the lives of other people, and would love for Him to use me to do so. I want to see people healed and strongly experience the presence of the Holy Spirit.

Matthew 5:14
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

For my blog

Take UP Your Cross

Deuteronomy 23:12-14
12 Thou shalt have a place also without the camp, whither thou shalt go forth abroad:
13 And thou shalt have a paddle upon thy weapon; and it shall be, when thou wilt ease thyself abroad, thou shalt dig therewith, and shalt turn back and cover that which cometh from thee:
14 For the Lord thy God walketh in the midst of thy camp, to deliver thee, and to give up thine enemies before thee; therefore shall thy camp be holy: that he see no unclean thing in thee, and turn away from thee.

God cares about cleanliness and sanitation. Write about a time you experienced an unsanitary situation and what you did about it. What are your thoughts on verse 14? How can we apply it to our lives today?

Unfortunately, I have found myself in a lot of positions I did not want to be in. I could tell of several. 🤢 In one situation, I had to go help a person I know move out of their condemned house. Since I didn't own a hazmat suit, I used what I had. I put on jeans, a long sleeve shirt, shoes, and socks. I wore a baseball cap, and put on a facemask and work gloves. When I was finished, I immediately changed clothes, kept those items in a trash bag until they come be washed, and took a shower. This house was disgusting. It had bugs; ant, roaches, spiders, bed bugs, and water bugs. The toilet was not able to be flushed so you know what was there. There were dirty dishes in the bath tub since the kitchen sink was stopped up. There was trash and cobwebs in the bedrooms. There was raw sewage and water standing in the garage. Dog pee and feces were all over the floor and walls. Yeah, it was bad. I don't think I need to discuss the smell. This is probably one of the worse unsanitary situations I have ever been in. Let's just say, whatever you do, you don't think about what you are standing in or near. You keep focused on the task at hand which was getting all the salvageable personal belongings out.

They say cleanliness is next to godliness. My thoughts on applying this to our lives is that God can not stand filth. If you want to draw closer to God, be clean. Bathe regularly. Keep your surroundings neat and clean. This is pleasing to God. He does care about our personal hygiene.

“Nothing of me is original. I am the combined effort of everyone I’ve ever known.” — Chuck Palahniuk

Read this article and share your thoughts about how the people in your life have had an impact on you.

“They’ve all helped me grow, become more resilient, and many supporting me when I most needed it. I’ve learned, matured, and became wiser thanks to my interactions with them.”


Well, I couldn't get the article to come up for me so I guess I will just write about what I can see. This is kind of an open-ended topic. Some of us could write a book on it, but I don't have time to write a book today.

I could talk of my mom and dad since they raised me. I could talk of my grandmothers who each had their own special influence. I could speak of aunts, uncles, and cousins. I could share stories of friends and acquaintances.
I could tell about many teachers that I have crossed paths with. I could go on and on telling about preachers, church song leaders, deacons, elders, Sunday school teachers, camp sponsors, cops, soldiers, and boyfriends.

There have been many people who have influenced my life, some in good ways, and some in bad ways. It is a common theory for people to believe you are a product of your environment. In some ways you are. On the other hand, while we don't get to choose what happens to us in our circumstances, we do get to choose how we respond. We can let it make us or break us.

I choose to let it make me stronger. I choose to be a better person in spite of the bad things that have happened to me. I refuse to live my life as a victim, a victim of my circumstances, of abuse, etc... Have I been a victim? Yes, very much so, but I do not have to live as a victim every day of my life. I do not have to live in that mindset. I choose to fight back and live on.

I appreciate the good in my life. I have also had many wonderful and good influences. Some of these people have passed away and some are still living. I am very grateful for all the good experiences in my life. Sometimes we need to remind ourselves of the good experiences. It is so easy to get hung up on the negative.

“What is that you express in your eyes? It seems to me more than all the print I have read in my life.”
Walt Whitman
Can the eyes be that expressive? What do you think?

I think some people have more expressive eyes than others. A lot can be seen in the eye if you look close enough. The Bible calls the eye the windows to the soul. Eyes are interesting. Some people are uncomfortable when you look into their eyes. I love to look at peoples eyes.
