I wasn’t sure what to expect when the Lord prompted me to be part of the Disaster Relief team to Welaka Florida. I was unsure of what our team would be doing or even how we would accomplish the given tasks with the limited skills that I exhibited. However, while we were there our team met Whelma, a mother and also a grandmother, who lived in a rural and low socioeconomic area. During Hurricane Mathew, a tree fell on Whelma’s house and created extensive damage to the majority of her home. Our team was given the opportunity to complete a few unfinished ongoing repairs and now at least one of the rooms in her house looks considerably better. Yet even though serving in this manner was definitely gratifying and humbling, the one thing that touched our team the most was what we saw in another room adjacent to the one we were working on. Whelma had a prayer room...a room set aside just for her and the Lord. I was touched deeply by this because even though the rest of her house was displaced and crammed from wall to wall with the remainder of her belongings, she intentionally made an effort to clear out a dedicated space for the the Lord. Whelma’s house could be a small reflection of what our lives should be with Christ. When we make an intentional effort to clear “a space” in our jobs, routines, and relationships for the Lord, He will them take care of our what and how questions. When we let Christ and the Holy Spirit invade our hearts, minds, and souls we will then know what God has called us to do and how we are to accomplish all that He has in store for us. As we daily and intentionally clear out a space for the Lord in our lives we not only receive blessings from our Heavenly Father, but we become a blessing or a Whelma to those around us.
