I have found that when I am feeling down or overburdened with something that one of the best ways to help is to turn my focus outward rather than inward.
There is something uplifting that happens when we serve and minister to others. We realized that we may not be so bad off and that others are also suffering with their own problems.
When we prepare ourselves each day to look outward we will be guided to opportunities to help and serve others. As we turn our hearts outward to others and upward to God we find more peace and love in our own hearts.
What do you do to prepare yourself to be open to opportunities to serve?
How do you serve or minister to others?
