Where I See God
Journal Entry #3: Through a Social Media Post
“And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him.” 1 John 5:14 NLT
God surprised me this week when I went looking for Him.
I usually turn to social media to find out what everyone around me is up to. Social media captivates me with its beautiful pictures on Instagram and quotes from Facebook that make me laugh and sometimes irritate me. However where God got my attention wasn’t from any of those kind of posts. It was in a cry for help.
The post simple read, “We need men’s winter tops and pants at the Genesis Clothes Closet. Help please.”
Most of our country has been experiencing the seriously cold temperatures this winter. Our area shelters quite a few homeless and impoverished. A cry for help came from a friend wanting to make sure our church’s clothing closet was equipped to help those in need. Equipped to help those she didn’t even know.
God, showed up in a simple social media post to alert others to a basic need.
I’m not sure of the response or movement that stemmed from that post, but I know it moved me to action.
Simple but powerfully making a difference. God at work.
