Isaiah 51:9 ESV
Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the Lord; awake, as in days of old, the generations of long ago. Was it not you who cut Rahab in pieces, who pierced the dragon?
Love The One
I have not read the book 'Awake' but I am trying, for the past 10 years or so, to live my life fully awake for the Lord.
Does world poverty overwhelm you?
Do you think that it is just too big so you just ignore it?
Sometimes I think that if I do anything it will go unnoticed. How can just one person, like me, make a difference in this huge scale of poverty, or sickness. I thought, how can this blog make a difference for God.
Proverbs 21:13 ESV
Whoever closes his ear to the cry of the poor will himself call out and not be answered.
One person at a time, loving on one person at a time
Love the one.
Romans 13:11 ESV
Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed.
Our Lord is ready to take over if we will only take the first step in helping those who are in need.
Love the one and He will multiply that into hundreds and thousands.

If you are looking for some motivation why don't you check out the book 'Awake' by Noel Yeatts. I watched a few of the above trailers and I found what she had to say was full of passion and love for the one.
In March 2012 I did a post on Love The One
This post was centered around Heidi Baker and a message of just loving the one, that is what we need to do. If you want a bit more motivation please check it out here.
Remember Love The One

Psalm 100:1-5 ESV
A Psalm for giving thanks. Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.
