Here I am again, I thought today was going to be, less filled with ministry work. I should have known better. I realized today, I have to do two more blogs and three short posts , etc. I am not complaining at all- I am just wondering, what I am to blog on. I read a few blogs a week and I am always amazed at how much is said and how well it is said. I want people to feel that way, when reading my Blogs.
I guess that is why it is important to me, to provide content that provides experience, worth reaping or peaking interest in reading other material that I have written. One of the big themes, I like to teach is “God through Me. It is a way of life and provides a life, filled with great experience. Also this is not, a concept that you hear taught a lot, but applies to everyone. Everyone can live, with the knowledge that they equally -can share, with God working through them.
What does that working with” God through me” mean? To me it means everything, it is living and being a true Apostle- That might sound scary, but it is just the opposite – it means being nice, kind, caring compassionate – it means something so great, as to share a smile, as to feed a beggar, to helping your grandmother, or sharing with your sister. Acts of love and kindness, are act of God working love through you. We are all called to be Apostles- to me it means messengers of love. Every act done from the goodness of free will – is “God through Me” Never, feel that small, acts of kindness are less important, than big acts –all of them are needed, to make life, good, better or great .
A simple smile can save, a desperate person, from total despair. A hand out of loose change, could feed a homeless person for a day. The wishing of good can send a vibration around the world. We are called to walk a path that, no one else walks, because they are not you. We all are called to choose how we act or feel. We choose how, we treat people. We choose how or if we respect ourselves. These choices are your stewardship. Your choice is to be of God through you or not. There are no shades of gray. You either are or not. The more you incorporate the correct behavior the better life seems.
It is as simple as, just being nice, you can raise that bar and add caring to nice, it means more, if you totally, raise that bar – You can see Christ, in people – true divinity- in brotherhood or sisterhood. What would life be like? If not caring was the exception, that not helping, was odd, that including everyone was always the choice. How many friends would you have? How much kinder would, your world be?
This is a choice in today’s world, unfortunately, not many of us make that choice. It feels odd, because we are not use to it, but the simple act of kindness, can start to chance everything. Thinking on purpose, what it means to be kind and doing an intentional gesture, even a smile on purpose , sends a positive vibration, unseen but that vibration, may cause another person to do something good, because the energy hits them and they act . As we utilize “God through Me” at first intentionally we are changing our world . The more we do it, the more natural it becomes in your life.
I try purposely, to be nice –you may say I have to, be nice because I am a Reverend. Education or tiles that signify education only mean a person has completed an educational experience. “Choice” alone, is what makes a person and you can come from God, working through you or not. I choose God through me because it is always received, with joy or kindness and returned back kindly. A true Apostle always walks in God’s love and works with God through them- we are all called to be Apostles. It is much easier than you might think. Try it, with your friends or with strangers and experience something different. It is so different it can change your life.
Be Love always,
