A Humanitarians 24 Hour Lifestyle: by K
A. ADDENDS: Yearning to Help Another - 24/7 Creative Thought - Earnest Prayer for Guidance - Stacks of RW-DVD's/ Notebooks with Project Thoughts - The 40 Hour Responsibility - Moving Forward on a Daily Basis Toward the Future - Steadfast Hope - Calculating $___________Financial Opportunity - Praising God for Ultimate Answered Prayer/FAITH - Acknowledging The CALL - Commitment to Prioritize -and more......all of which are required and a blessing for the "humanitarian"
C. DIVIDED by: The Reality of Corruption - The Daily Research for Project Viability - 24/7 Anticipation To Initiate New Life - Proverbial Shopping Lists for Projects - Sightings of Humanitarian Need - Living In The Dark - Inability to Satisfy the Yearning of the Heart - Walking TWO Treadmills - Daily "Dead End" and "Detour" Signs - The Question "How Do I Move Forward?" - Reduced Family Time - Broken Sleep Patterns - Giving From Dwindling Resources - Inability to Move Forward - No Viable Plan of Action - Undetermined Plan of Action - and more..... all of which are resolvable challenges for the humanitarian with supportive services.
E. MULTIPLIED by: A human, who is being transformed by God, with the heart of a servant, who has adopted the "humanitarian" identity (in itself is surrender), is motivated by the blessed responsibilities, hopes for ministry, to bless others on a daily basis, owns readiness to serve others, is yearning to walk with the LORD/Creator to pass hope and blessing into a struggling humanity....and more.....all of which could become a functional reality!
E. EQUALS: UNABLE TO CALCULATE - Missing Information Error in Section A,
POINT: To resolve the "problem" for the humanitarian, who is called, all information necessary must be part of the equation. Without the financial information, there is no possible resolve. Without the missing information, the humanitarian has no hope of providing the anticipated results....Always remember, God is faithful, He knows the when and how to save and to provide.
I think of the story about the people who were caught in their home during a flood. They weren't aware of the danger and denied the offer of a rowboat ride as an avenue to safety. They later denied the help of a man with a motor boat. Choosing to wait, they would't climb into the Coast Guard Cruiser as it stopped to help them, later they were sure the water would recede and waved off the Coast Guard Helicopter. A little later they cried out to God, please send someone to save us. He responded, I sent you a row boat, a motor boat, a Coast Guard Cruiser and then a Helicopter and you didn't choose my help. At that point the house with the family disappeared into the rushing flood waters.
Every illustration has a flaw....in the case of Dinarland, the surrendered humanitarians are waiting for all problems to be resolved. They know that they will be safe and encouraged that a vessel to safety is available, BUT and are willing to wait! Every sacrifice they have already experienced, and the potential loss of the house, life and family, as a last resort, the humanitarian, as a good steward of the blessing God has already provided, may need to choose to lead his/her family and climb into the avenue of safety.
Out of control water seems to be getting higher, the waters are becoming more troubled.
