Now that your career or job is winding down you may be saying to yourself, “I deserve this!”
Your plans are to take it easy and relax.To go golfing, fishing, beaches, or to adventure on some dream vacation like Hawaii or Europe.
What if God has other plans for your life now that your in your comfort zone? You may have a wealth of knowledge, insight, talent, gifts, wisdom, or just a heart of willingness to serve or volunteer.
There are so many ideas and things you can do for others, for God, for your country, or overseas to help the less fortunate. The list is endless and I’m not talking about a “bucket list” but to make the effort to do something selflessly for others.
Some ideas which are minimal I thought of are teaching a child an instrument you know, tutoring in school subjects for free, mentoring others in your field of expertise. Helping the homeless, the hungry, the poor. Visiting seniors who have nobody around, discovering a short term mission trip overseas or in the U.S. Using your trade skills like carpentry or plumbing, etc. In areas affected by storm disasters or reaching third world countries.
Your life has so much to offer and now is not the time to bury your gifts and talents but to use them to help others in the name of the Lord God. Your greatest wealth is you-so what’s holding you back? God says that you are His treasure and the apple of His eye.
Yes. You are His treasure and worth it, because God doesn’t make any junk. You are somebody and He created you in His image to be His hands extended. Life is a gift so make somebody else happy today.
Greetings! My name is Andy Provitola and I live in New England on the south shore between Boston and the beautiful Cape Cod region.
The purpose of my blogging and writing is to encourage you in your journey here on planet earth. Life is full of pressing issues and problems and my desire is to discover a place for peace, hope, healing, and contentment. I am a follower of Jesus Christ – God’s one and only Son of God and discovered these truths along my own personal journey.
Having discovered a personal relationship with God the Father through Jesus Christ does not mean I have to be religious to attain the rewards of heaven. The fact is God provides grace for us and accepts us as we are in His image. In other words, we cannot attain heaven or life eternal on our own, but by God’s loving grace and no merit of our own.
My goal is to continue to find a balance of life from a spiritual and practical perspective with a purpose to please and glorify God in all that I do because of His ‘Gift of Grace’.
God is not transcendent and so far away that he is out of reach with humanity. God desires that His presence lives within us and not just in the galaxies and the universe. Experiencing the unconditional love of God has been so rewarding and while discovering the truth and purpose for my life. Moving forward in this life is not a sprint, but a marathon when it comes to this race here on earth.
I am blogging because I find it is a good way to connect in a much more effective and efficient way when it comes to communicating and interacting with with people that I do not know. Blogging and writing challenges me and also stretches me specifically in my thoughts, my mind, my emotions, and my spiritual life to live a vertical relation with God and a horizontal relationship with others.
There will be a variety of topics and subjects to address including youth, young adults, family, singles, seniors, relationships, etc. Some of the topics will include God’s creation and power, depression, loneliness, suicide, hope, healing, setbacks, financial matters, business, stress, anxiety, care, encouragement, and so much more
I would like to connect with all walks of life, ethnicity, culturally, other religions, socio-economics, and more
I am currently writing a book and several memoirs about my own life and journey . The journey begins at a young age growing up in Malden, Massachusetts, specifically Maplewood Square to where I am today. I became paralyzed from the waist down as a senior in high school and I share how my life changed for the better!
“But I do not consider my life as something of value or dear to me, so that I may [with joy] finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus. To testify faithfully of the good news of God’s [precious undeserved] grace [which makes us free of guilt of sin and grants us eternal life]. Acts 20:24 Amplified Version
