MARK MEERSMAN / PIF
About me, this is always the hardest to write so let me seek a little help from the good book.
Delight thyself also in the Lord; and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass.
What that says to me is to be happy in yourself knowing that God is in total control of all things. He will give us what we desire and He will direct our steps to do the right things to help others. And He will give us the joy to do the job, not to mention the resources.
And then He tells us to commit everything to Him and trust Him and He will make things happen that you would never believe would be possible. Once we believe that God is in control, full control, and then we don’t have to be concerned about the day to day junk that happens.
All we need to do is ask God for help, He will supply it and He will give us many opportunities to be a blessing regardless of what our agenda is. Many want to save the planet, many want to help feed hungry people, and many want to clothe people. And God, in His love for us, will give us the ways to do those things we desire.
Because, it is also written that God gives us the power to get wealth. And also He tells us not to brag on ourselves because of the wisdom we have or the strength or the wealth we have but to glory in the fact that we know the Lord. Jeremiah 9:23-24.
So my way to bring peace or help others is this way – by seeking God’s direction for me to go and going that way. For God says, But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and ALL these things will be added to you. Matthew 6:33.
IF I seek Him, He will direct me in the right path to help in many ways.
This foundation Pay it Forward Global means many things to me. It is my devotion and the very thing that is closest to my heart. I want to be able to reach first across the block then across the county and then across the country one hand at a time until we are all paying it forward one person a day, one day at a time.
I am not comfortable talking about myself and prefer to let my actions define me rather than my words. So please enjoy this site, leave your comments and testimonies and remember who is always in charge and all the glory to God and thanks to him for giving me this opportunity to make a difference.
