what I can, where I am, w/what I have

For you: whether you need 
a challenge
a dose of grace today. 
For me it's a bit of both.
I've been boiling inside over the human-trafficking expected surrounding the Super Bowl, feeling helpless since I read this article.
On the same day I got a prayer request via text for a seemingly impossible situation. I prayed.
Hours later, the prayer was answered. 
In my current position what I can offer is often just prayer.
This was a timely reminder: a prayer, offered in faith, well isn't just praying after all. (James 5:15 says it will make the sick person well & forgive sinners.)
It's the song our family has been singing for weeks:
"if you have faith as small as a mustard seed you can say to this mountain 'move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." (Matt 17:20)

Doing what I can, with what I have, with where I am. 
I'm challenged as well to assess what I have that I can share to meet a need or bless a friend.
My time, for example. Offering to pick up a kid at school, take a load off the teacher by cutting & tracing for a project, make an extra batch & deliver it to overloaded parents, you get it. 
This, by the way, is one of my New Years Resolutions. 
So, tell me: 
how do you do what you can, 
with what you have, 
where you are?
