Start Thinking About Others
We are all made in the image of God, but we fall short and that is what it means to be human. We start introspectively with our faith. What does it mean to believe in God? How do we act appropriately? What kinds of things are abundantly clear to us through his teachings? Then, we apply those lessons into our lives but it doesn’t stop there! Mike and Patti Ann discuss what it is like to go beyond ourselves when glorifying God. Patti Ann is doing so through her business Project Feed it Forward, and I highly recommend that you check out how she embodies God through her work. At some point, it becomes less about you and more about how you inspire change and community based on God’s word. So, when is the last time you paid it forward? What tools do you use to do so? Mike has a great example (detailed in the podcast) with a Subway gift card. Let us know in the comments what compels you to think of others and what compels you to act. We would love to learn from you!
God Opens Doors
Opportunities are abundant, even in a pandemic world. You just have to look a little harder at your situation. Luckily, if you have had any experience in following God’s plan or seeing God open doors for you, you might be well aware that they are not as obvious as they seem in hindsight. Patti Ann talks about how she came to be with Project Feed it Forward and what it took to follow God’s plan and not her plan. She also gives great advice during her time with Mike that explains what it was like for her to accept what God was putting on her doorstep. If you are struggling to know God’s plan for you we have some questions to ask – What are your God-given talents? How can you use those gifts to give back to your community? What are you looking for in life? Does this match up with what God has laid before you? The end goal is to be happy, healthy, and putting God first above all else. Be persistent in this endeavor. You don’t just have one chance to do it right, God is forgiving and he does that for a reason.
