Many people feel they have nothing to offer because their checking account is in the red or they cannot match the gift someone else is giving. Being a blessing to others go far beyond the money and stuff. Everyone has something to give to others and that is the gift or blessing of prayer. It does not cost us anything to remember someone in prayer.
Your prayers can touch someone thousands of miles away in a hospital room you have never visited. Your prayers can help turn a situation around for someone. In a lot of cases, your prayers can do what money and material stuff cannot do.
If you ever think you have nothing to give, remember you can lift up someone in prayer. In fact, we should always take time to remember others in prayer. All of us are in need of it.

I cannot begin to count the number of times I have made plans only to have them interrupted in order for me to go or do something altogether different. Honestly, the change is not always welcomed when it occurs, but later on, it makes perfect sense why it had to be. In times like this, I can fight against it and try to continue to do things on my own and in my own way or I can accept God's redirection and carry out my part in the plan He has designed.
God's redirection is always purposeful. Everything He does has purpose. We have to learn to flow with God even when it makes us uncomfortable or disrupts our lives in some way. His redirection leads us to someone who needs to hear life is worth living. His redirection leads us to families in need and we have what is necessary to meet the need. God's redirection takes you from one job to another job. Rejection is redirection. God's redirection leads us to the people, places, and things we should be.
