Love Lifted Me and our Unseen Grandson!

And the Lord came and called as before, “Samuel! Samuel!” And Samuel replied, “Speak, your servant is listening.” 1 Samuel 3:10 NLT

When the call goes out for helpers for nursing home ministry, many people don’t volunteer, simply because they feel they have nothing to offer. “I can’t sing – I’m not good in front of people'” or “I’m not sure what I could do.” are all common responses. This week, our oldest grandson Nathan came along with me to my Memory Care Thursday session. I was sad that he was too shy to sing and didn’t want to stand in the front with me, after being introduced. But today’s video is a perfect illustration of why, everyone can help. While I was busy singing for a small group of people, Nathan took a stroll down the hall and found a bunch playing cards in the dining room. So, he went in, introduced himself and invited them to come join our singing and come they did. In the video you see just two more joining but off camera there were almost another six or seven who came until our room was packed! Just as Nathan’s gift of encouragement, gathered many of our wandering lambs, so God can use you, if you will just make yourselves available. I hope you enjoy our extra short video this week and that you will simply ask Jesus, what He would have you to do. Have a blessed week all!

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
