If you have a sibling(s), you’ll know the power of their influence.
Beginning of the year, my sister started volunteering at The Nations Hope when they relocated their headqurters to Singapore. She mentioned that they needed help with their website and asked if I could help out. Since I wasn’t working (which by the way, is the best excuse to get out of anything), I said I would.
When I realised the extent of work required, I kicked myself mentally for agreeing not just because it would require quite a bit of time, but because I wasn’t sure I’d be up to the task.
After hours of googling, copying and customising code, I’m proud to announce that the website is now ‘live’ : http://www.nationshope.org – Please take a look and see what the good people at The Nations Hope are doing!
On hindsight, I’m so glad that my sister pushed pointed me in this direction for the simple sense of pride in being able to contribute to spreading His Word/works.
It has also given me a new outlook on upcoming tasks : He has a reason for every season and I do not have to worry about my inadequacies be it laziness or the lack of know how. I just need to go through with it and whatever I need will turn up.
Another nugget on outlooks: if I one is not predisposed to giving, He will plant people around them who will help them be that.
In short, you can’t run.
