TAKING BACK YOUR LIFE
1. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 says, "Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing." In what ways have people encouraged you, or built you up during this difficult time?
2. If you have received help from others with a bitter heart because of a pride, ask God's forgiveness. Then ask Him to give you a humble heart, and an attitude of gratitude for the wonderful ways in which He has met your needs through the generosity of others.
3. Make a special effort today to tell someone "Thank you," when they share God's gift of kindness and goodwill with you. You can say it to the volunteer serving your next meal, to one of the workers in the shelter where you're staying, to the people who have come to bring food, clothing, or other supplies, to the person who has come to express their condolences, or to the family who has opened their home to you. It's a great way to bless them as they seek to bless you.
