….He asks so little of His children but to just give.
Today in the crisp winter air, the sun shone with vibrant rays over the earth. I felt the warmth as our hearts plateaued to another plain. Love, today, flowed from the Holy Spirit as He showed His immeasurable love, yet again.
I leaned up against the fender of my wife’s car and as she backed out, she wore a huge smile on her face. Crossing my arms, I felt the love as she drove off. God was with her…. anointing her dreams. The warmth of the sun penetrated our hearts together and a calming sensation crept along my body. It’s times such as that, I realize God is nearer to the everyday humdrum of life. I pause as He blesses our actions, always remembering He is in control.
Driving home from work, I thanked God for His miracles that persistently come to us. Pulling into a tollbooth, the car ahead paid my toll. Was this a message? Humbled, I told the attendant to use my money for those behind me. I wondered…. was God using us to witness His love in action? It is awesome to know He asks so little of His children but to just give.
As the sun set behind us, God’s anointing was clear. It was three vehicles in tandem and perhaps a dear, sweet lady in a tollbooth who may have not understood how God works in her life. There was no contact or a sound of the horn to thank one another–just random acts of kindness.
Day after day, God gives us opportunities to show who we truly are to others. We are instructed to share and pass on His love for positive changes. One act of kindness can transform a person’s day or even their life. There is always a great power in His name.
“….make it a better place for you and for me” (lyrics by Michael Jackson)
and Random Acts of Kindness
“but the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control…”
Reflecting on this day God made, a unison of love and respect played a major part. I thought about my accomplishments and those who I tried to make feel special. I made an elderly gentleman smile because I was early. By the size of his grin, it came from his heart. I replied with a smile from mine too.
You see it doesn’t take much to change the world – a helping hand, a smile, a thoughtful gesture – and your day is made. Now that you made someone else feel special “pass it on”. Don’t break the chain! God so loved so we can as well. To make God smile today should be your goal.
Let’s thank God for such a lovely day. Like a meteorologist, tomorrow will be much the same, a chance of showers in the forecast. I’ll pray the sun shines on you. God bless those who seek to do their best. God bless those who walk in His love!
My heart is full, my spirit content. God please grant all my friends the joy I send. Like a store-bought card, I send my heartfelt feelings to all.
Spread some kindness today:
Give a dollar to a homeless person
Hold a door for someone.
Help someone carry their groceries
Give flowers to an elderly person
Share a book that changed your life
Tell your loved ones how much you love them
Stop judging others. Everyone is fighting their own battles.
Be an inspiration today – Smile
Talk to someone new
Be the one to shift the negative conversation.
Pay someone a genuine compliment every day.
Bring your neighbors’ trash cans from the end of their driveway up to their garage.
“You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”
