Good Intentions Without Godly Interventions
                    By: Sharon McCammon
             

                 

This idea was originally featured in the Children's Ministry Inspiration Vault

 

 

I Peter 2:9-10, But you are chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light.  

As a young naive pre-teen, I knew that God spoke to my heart one night during an altar call.  I knew at a young age that God called me to minister to the children of this world.  As much as I knew God spoke to this little girl at age 12, I didn't have a clue how to pursue that unique experience I had long ago during a cold winter night in January.  

I left that evening feeling special but not realizing that my winter night experience would be a very long winter season for me spiritually.  I had every intention in the world to pursue the call of God in my life.  I did everything I could possibly do to demonstrate my love towards the children of the world.  I gave away pretty much everything that I had, I would baby-sit, I work with an organization that helped mentally challenged people.  The reality of that adventure was growing colder and colder in my heart.  Good intentions without Godly interventions will leave a person hanging onto forgotten cold dreams.

As people who love the Lord, our will and desire is to help our brothers and sisters in the Lord to reach and fulfill the purpose for which they were created.   We each will make it to the right path if we continue to serve with the help of the Lord.  How much time we would have saved if some adult would have intervened and shared their personal growing experiences with Jesus!  How deeply rooted we would have been as children if just one would have remained faithful and encouraged instead of discourage or turn a blind eye to something they themselves might have not known!

Personally, I have been challenged to live a life that intervenes in the lives of the children that God chooses to place in my world.  Sharing my personal realities of life, challenging them to live a life of four basic principles.  Read your Bible, always pray, tell of Jesus love every day.  Spend some time with Chrisitian friends and  allow the sunshine to awaken you to healthy summer season that will allow you to grow.  We have to do more than simply teach these words but we have to personally be involved and live this out before them, so that their good intentions become reality without any moments lost in this world.
