Giving Back: Delight In The Lord Ministries

Posted by Caroline Mitchell on

     According to Acts 20:35 in the Bible it states that, “In everything I did, I showed you that we must work hard and help the weak.  We must remember the words of the Lord Jesus.  He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” The world today is so focused on “self” that most forget that giving should come from one’s heart and love for others.  Naturally, as humans we are selfish and expect something in return.  In life, most people want “all” that they can get.  This is not how Christ desired for us to live.  During December 2017, I was filled with indescribable JOY over the record numbers of people who joined in my "Giving Back" campaign.  These individuals helped me attain my goal for giving back to Delight in the Lord Ministries.  Wow!  I was beyond blessed by everyone's generosity!

 

     In the Bible in Mark 10:45 the verse says, “Even the Son of Man did not come to be served.  Instead, he came to serve others.  He came to give his life as the price for setting many people free.” Since a very young age, I have loved learning about missions and serving with my family in missions.  I am grateful to my parents for encouraging me to participate in mission trips, and serving others in our community and other parts of the country. My sister-in-Christ, and missionary, Cierra Crowe, is an amazing example of Christ as she is currently serving others in Uganda through Delight in Lord Ministries! It will be a great 2018 for the women and children she serves in Uganda because of the support of the Caroline Lee Designs "Giving Back" campaign! Thank You....Thank You...Thank You to all who made purchases at the end of November and during the month of December! Each time a purchase was made during the campaign, my heart was filled with true JOY because I knew how impactful it would be for Delight in the Lord Ministries.  To learn more about Cierra and Delight in the Lord Ministries, please follow her at delightinthelordministries.org, and on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.  Upcoming Event for Delight in the Lord Ministries:  Saturday, January 20th, Annual Resolution 5K Run, 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM.  Registration ends January 18th and more information can be found @ https://runsignup.com/Race/GA/Brooklet/2018ResolutionRun.

     The best way to find true JOY is through giving without receiving.  In 2018, choose to give from the heart, and you will find that it results in true JOY! Happy New Year!
