What can I do when I can do nothing?

what can i do when i can do nothing?

is there actually an instance where i can only do nothing?

is doing nothing doing something?

is nothing neutral?

or is nothing a negative contribution?

my guilt, powerlessness, lack of creativity and drive are eating at me. i help my friend run his instagram account for a dog rescue overseas and I get tragic messages about animals being poisoned, tortured, and suffering in ways that are unimaginable and in every sense of the word heartbreaking and i can do nothing, being i am 74884957 miles away and have no saying on which cases the rescue can take and the rescue is always full and lacking resources anyways. i see it all happening then I hear about the tragedy that followed because no one moved and I can d nothing. i admit i am a fool. i must be doing something wrong. or going at this wrong. there must be a solution. things shouldn’t be this bleak. I hope i have more faith to be a vessel to the power I know is available to us through Christ and do something about this suffering.

The perks of a boring job

Let’s just say I listen to a lot of TED talks.

My office environment is lax, besides the few passive aggressive emails I receive from my (woman) boss every so often. Also, My chatty co-worker just moved cubicles a few weeks ago and now I am all by myself in my cubicle (besides the fact that my other (male) boss could easily tunnel vision me by a simple turn of his head).

So with that said I rejoice in the silence and take full advantage of it filling it with Education. I can’t listen to audiobooks because it is hard to follow sometimes with office interruptions, but I do listen to a lot of TED talks, when I am not busy counting down the minutes to go home, and I actually quiet enjoy them and thankful I am able to.

 

Here are some of the stuff that stayed with me and I want to share them with you:

Meet Mystery Dog

FullSizeRender

I started my “morning” with 2 little girls from my street asking me if this was my dog. They’re currently going around to try to find the dog’s owners. I told them that I am willing to help in anyway by dropping it off to a No Kill shelter or posting pictures and what not. So far, I don’t know what’s the fate of this dog going to be but I sure hope those girls find the dog’s home.

Please keep it in your thoughts and prayers today that this dog may be returned to its home.

 

Update: The girls are going to keep the dog. I was so happy to hear this when she told me cause I wanted this cutie to find a home so badly. God is good.
