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 caring

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 smile

A prayer

A phone call

An email

A letter

A card

A visit

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.
