Life is hard isn't it? It doesn't always have a happy ending like the movies try to fool us with. It is simply just not always easy or fair for that matter. But so often times I can get caught up in my difficulties and struggles and feel like it is the end of the world until I am reminded of how blessed I truly am. How I have never really known hunger. How I have always had a roof over my head and clothes to wear. I am reminded that someone always has it worse, much worse.
Sometimes when I step back from my world I feel so ridiculous even embarrassed for even worrying about such selfish things. Let's be honest, I could go on for days listing the ridiculous things we can worry about. And even though I strive to be a better person making a difference in this world; I can get caught up in all this. So when an opportunity presents itself to have less of me and more of helping others I am moved to take action. Moved to actually get out there and do something that can really make a difference and spread the love of Christ. Sometimes these opportunities are right under our noses. Maybe a lonely loved one needs your comfort or a hurting friend needs a shoulder to cry on and then sometimes opportunities present themselves to help out a complete stranger. Helping our loved ones comes easy but I challenge you to open your hearts to complete strangers and make a difference in their lives. You will be surprised at how much it ends up making a difference in your life!

Recently I came across this amazing charity and wanted to spread the word about them and how we can play a part in helping with this great cause. Check out this brief video below about Soles4Souls.
Be sure to check out their website and ALL they are doing. I promise you will be moved by this and hopefully want to take action.

It starts with one pair of soles. Join me in taking a step toward helping another soul.
