Tonight as I was feeling overtired and worn out, I watched a few videos that shook some sense into me.
As I recently shared, I’m passionate about World Vision’s sponsorship programs and I especially love their gift catalog.
As I was browsing through the World Vision Facebook pages, I watched a few videos.
They’ve created a series of videos called “In search of the True Spirit of Christmas…“.
Watching people in need truly breaks my heart and makes me wonder, “Why?”
I can get so focused on the enormous, unsolvable issues that I have a hard time seeing any individual blessings.
But, I need to try. To try and focus on one gift at a time. It’s so hard to believe that one gift helps at all… there are too many in need… we can’t help enough.
It’s like me to get overwhelmed. Even a pile of laundry and a sink full of dishes can take me out.
But I need to remember their strength. I need to not be so overwhelmed that I don’t reach out and help at least one. And then, once I’ve given one gift, I can give another… and then perhaps another… BUT that is for tomorrow. For today, I give one. I help one.
This year, I’m finding Christmas Spirit in the power of one gift.
