We Are God’s Hands
By Carol Poole
We are God’s hands. He uses us to help others in many ways – sharing our food, clothing those in need, lending a helping hand when others need assistance, an up-lift, a pat on the back, a hug, or just a tender touch.
HOPE FOR A BETTER LIFE
Sometimes God uses our hands to build things for others such as Habitat House or a ramp for those who can no longer use steps.
PEACE OF MIND
He uses our hands to help others by cooking food for those who can no longer do it for themselves. He uses our hands to drive our cars to take people to the doctor or to purchase supplies when they can no longer drive. These acts can help people to feel relieved and peaceful.
LOVE TO END LONELINESS
He uses our hands to write letters, notes, cards, or text messages to show love and concern to others to let them know that they are not forgotten.
JOY AND A HAPPIER LIFE
He uses our hands to bring joy into people’s lives by letting them know that life is better because JESUS came and we can show HIS compassion and concern which brings hope, peace, love, and joy into their lives.
Over the last 20 months of our homebound care of my husband Gene, we have experienced God’s loving concern for us as we have been the recipients first hand of many acts of kindness bestowed on us by the people at St. John’s. You truly have Christ-like hands and hearts.
