The Significance of a Smile

How often have you been asked the question at church on a Sunday ‘How’s your week been?’

I am asked that often, and I usually respond with a flippant ‘Oh much of the same.’

If I stop and dissect my week, I would actually discover it has been quite significant. Obviously I spend the majority part of my life being a mum and a wife, but I also have opportunities every day to impact others in my world.

I will deliver meals to a family whose child has been in hospital, or a Mum coping with a new born and 2 other toddlers. Although I deliver meals on a regular basis, for those families it is hugely significant. I will have coffee with someone who knows God is calling them for something more, but they are unsure or fearful of the next step, so I will pray and guide them through it. When their face lights up at the realisation that there is a place within LIFE for them to fulfil their purpose, that is hugely significant. Even a hug on a Sunday shows someone they are valued, if they are feeling down that day, it’s hugely significant.

June was Legacy month for our church. Over 3 weeks we watched videos of the reach LIFE has into Church, Community, Business and Kingdom. Our church initiatives only happen when an individual decides to fill a need that seems insignificant but will significantly impact another.

So, how’s your week been? What do you dream about that can be actioned into having a significant impact in church, business or community? Come and chat with your Regional Pastor so we can change your ‘Much of the same’ week into an ‘Incredibly significant’ week.
