The above statistics are copied from my blogger stats site and they represent page views in various countries for my devotion on blogger. Pretty amazing. These are not people signed up to get blogger necessarily but someone in a search ended up looking at my devotion.  Kind of exciting to think people in all these countries got to see what God gave me to write. I don't take this responsibility lightly. 

You as an individual may not have an opportunity to go on a foreign mission trip but you can be a missionary of sorts wherever you are and whatever you do. It is not necessary to be a preacher or priest or theological seminary graduate to share the love of Christ and good news with others. Before personal computers, when I was in college,  you could sign up to get a pen pal from a foreign country. A friend of mine did and recently heard from her and even got to meet her. Yes people wrote actual letters with a stamp. 

People need to hear about Jesus. Don't put on a Christian tee shirt or Christian magnet on your car unless you are prepared to truly shine His love and light to people in your path. There are hurting people everywhere such as a grumpy waitress, irritable bank teller, lonely nursing home resident, those guys and girls in orange jumpsuits picking up trash on the highways nationwide to name a few. What can you do today to improve someone's life? Stop judging and start loving. 

PRAYER: Each day there are opportunities to not just be into myself but to really seek and save the lost. Give me opportunities and give me courage. In Jesus' name. Amen.
