Today I had meetings with a non-profit organization called Bridle Up Hope that helps to build self-esteem and self-confidence in young women through teaching them to work with horses in combination with learning Sean Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens principles. This organization s making a huge impact in the lives of many young women who have battled depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and all the things that can affect self-esteem. They also work with mothers who are battling with many of the sames issues in their lives that the young women do. Seeing the good work being done by the Covey family and their team at Bridle Up Hope is truly inspiring.
I had additional meetings with other non-profit groups that are doing humanitarian work on a much grander and global scale. Each of these groups are dedicated to serving others – yes they do it on very different scales but each are doing tremendous good. As I thought about the events of the day I was reminded of a quote I’d been reminded of just the other day which states:
“The Lord doesn’t care at all if we spend our days working in marble halls or stable stalls. He knows where we are, no matter how humble our circumstances… God knows that some of the greatest souls who have ever lived are those who will never appear in the chronicles of history. They are the blessed, humble souls who emulate the Savior’s example and spend the days of their lives doing good.” – Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Today I went from stable stalls to marble halls meeting with people who are doing good in the world it was good reminder to me that to God what matters is that you do good, wherever you are, and with whatever resources you have. Regardless of how big or small the service is you are able to perform it all matters equally to God. The important thing is just to go and SERVE!
Do an act of service today, big or small, just do good.
