God has a plan. God doesn't need us to fulfill his plan, that will happen no matter which side we choose. However, He wants us to be a part of what He is doing. He wants us to love him and trust him enough to walk confidently in the light of Jesus. Opportunities to help others are all around us, in big and small ways. It isn't about giving money or time or possessions (though those are some ways to help), it is about the heart. By being willing to put others before ourselves, to put God's kingdom work above our own selfish desires, we can be a part of what God is doing. We can be a light, a message of salvation, to a world destined for destruction.
Help me to have a servant's heart that is willing to put others in front of myself. Help me to find the joy and peace that you offer no matter what trials we face. Help me to trust in your plan and be a part of what you are doing.
