Being Useful

When my granddaughter was a toddler,my hubby would call her "Tigger" , because she loved to hop and jump around.

When you're young you can do lots of things that you may not be able to do when you get older.
There are always things we Can do.

We can be useful in any season of our life, even though we may not be able to do the same things we did when we were young.
 We may begin to feel useless and hopeless, there is one thing that we can all still do.

1 Corinthians 13:13
And now abideth faith, hope, love, these three but the greatest of all these is Love.
 Love is one thing we all need and can be given to others in need, at any age. 
We can all show love, by our actions and our words.

"They shall still bring forth fruit in old age";
Psalms 92:14a

Another way to be useful and encouraged is to pray, not only for ourselves but for others.

"Continue in prayer and watch in the same with thanksgiving"
Colossians 4:2

Praying for others not only helps others but helps us stay close to our heavenly father.

Begin the day with God; 
Kneel down to Him in prayer;
Lift up your heart to His abode,
And seek His love to share~

"O Lord cleanse my heart and fill it with your love, that I may share it with others today"

May your day be blessed with Love


  1. The most wonderful thing about I'm the only one!

    We are all unique, each one of us, yet all made in the image of our Creator. Isn't that something to marvel about?

  2. Thank you dear friend, I needed this post so very much! It truly is the simple matters of the heart that keeps us young and useful!
