Being Humble Being Blessed
For the past week I have been sick as all get out. I have had colds and flus but this was different. I really can not put my finger on it. I just feel a change. For the past week I have slept, read and coughed. I have fussed at invisible people in my room. I was not delusional, I just spoke into the atmosphere what I felt. Being frustraighted with the aches, pains, coughing, sweating and just being totally uncomfortable, I spoke verbally healing, help, direction and most all provison. God answered. I was reminded that He is God. I was humbled by the blessing brought to me my someone I did not expect but, thats God. He sends is best soldiers to do his best work. He also sends the weakest too. You see each of us no matter our abilities have a gift and not using that gift is in disobedience to God who gave us the gift. It does not take much. It does not take great effort. We just have to use what was already instilled in us by the Great Creator.
1 Peter 3:8-12 NLT - Finally, all of you should be of one mind, full of sympathy towards each other, loving one another with tender hearts and humble minds. Don't repay evil for evil. dont retaliate when people say unkind things about you. Instaed, pay them bak with a blessing. That is what God wants you to do, and h will bless you for it. For the scriotures say: If you want happy life and goidvdays, keep your tongue from speaking evil, and keep your lips from telling lies. Turn away from evil and do good. Work hard at living in peace with others. The eyes o the Lord watch ober those who do right, and his ears are open to their prayers. But the Lord turns his face against those who do evil.
Today and everyday, show kindness to others. Share your smile, a hello, a have a good day with someone. You never know how this will affect the receiver. Now get to it. Make a phone call, send a physicsl card in the mail to someone. Do a "I just stopped by" drive by.
Your Father is watching to see what you do with His gifts.
