Be Inspired to Inspire

Should you see someone have a rough time along life’s way
You can help that person see a brighter day
By being there
By listening to their struggles
Offering to help in the way that’s needed
All that individual may need is a word of encouragement
To uplift their soul through feeling discouragement
A phone call
Doing these things can give a new-found hope
Give the person ways through tough times to cope
You may never be called thousands to inspire
But think of the joy you can bring
When you help one person a new song to sing
One that causes others to inquire
Why is this person filled with such desire?
To touch the life of others
To mentor them
To be their teacher
To help lift them out of poverty of body and spirit
You don’t have to be rich to help those in need
What you need to do is plant in their mind a seed
A seed of hope that in time will grow
As you others show
All that you know
All that you are
To help them in life go far
Kevin Osborne is training to become a minister, psychotherapist and chaplain. He and his wife, Karen, plan to open a counselling practice. Karen enjoys doing cross-stitch. She makes me laugh when she sings the kitty bed-time song saying, “It’s that time. It’s the bestest kitty time of the day!” Karen is taking graduate divinity studies at Trinity College in the University of Toronto. Kevin is planning on taking graduate studies there. Karen is also planning on entering an M.A.-Ph.D. program through St. James the Elder Seminary majoring in Christian Psychology.
Our greatest calling is to be servants of our Lord wherever He calls us to go.
