If you haven’t,  please listen to the story above. 

I am so grateful for these young men. No, there wasn’t one of my family members in the facility, but it could have been. Isn’t it something how GOD can use something in your past that the devil meant for evil, to help someone else!?!  Miguel Alvarez talked about how his parents had abandoned him. He remembered how it made him feel. That was the reason he couldn’t just leave the residents like the other employees had.

These men, one hired as a cook and the other as a janitor probably thought they were hired just to do that job, but at just the right time GOD equipped them to do the job of a whole facility from the doctors on down! These men were put there for a purpose.  This wasn’t a job they just happened to get.  GOD had a plan. All they had to do was be willing and able.

You may not be where you think you should be in your life and it is keeping you from doing what GOD wants you to because you don’t feel qualified. Did you know that my GOD is a qualifier! ! GOD doesn’t need your degree our your money in your account! He used a cook and a janitor who helped more people than they probably know. He is waiting to use you in that job that you feel is just a dead beat job and is not going anywhere. Work that job like you own the place! Maybe one day you will!

In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is blessed to give than to receive.
Acts 20:35

The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands.
Psalm 138:8

I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
Philippians 4:13

And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.   Colossians 3:17

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11

Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established. Proverbs 16:3
