So? What are you doing? I mean really what are you doing with yourself? Do you go to work? Well, good. Do you help around the house? Well, good. Do you help in the community? Good. Do you help your neighbor, even if you don’t like them in particular? You do? Good. Now let me ask you this one? Do you help others that you don’t sometimes get or who look quite different than you? Maybe they look dirty? Or have no permanent home? Maybe they drink, because they have lost someone, or everything? Do you help them?
Now, about now, your thinking either yes, or no. For you yes people, I am most proud of you, and want to encourage you to keep doing what you are doing, you make a difference in the people, God send to you for help. You most likely needed help at one time and received it. Most who help like this have lost something and had someone step up to supply it to them and benefited from such a gesture. They call it paying forward. You are the few, and I honor you for your service. Always remember, you are seen by the one you call your God, whatever the name you use, God, or your name, hear you. God sees what you do, and has spoken to me at length about it. For, I listened.
I don’t know how God talks to you, but God talks to me about people and about how we do things to practice his words. How we worship people and yet don’t practice his words, daily. To night I took a woman in who would be on the street, if I had not stepped up to her aid. And Jesus is in her, and she is one of the least of these my sisters, on the street of my home town!! Imagine my horror when I learned the pastor I called was out of town and no one would take her in? Imagine when I called the Police Dept, and was given no name to send her too for a warm bed to sleep in and some food and conversation?
So, being me. I took her home with me, to the garage, where I am sleeping because there are only two rooms available in this house. I could sleep in the house in a twin bed in the same room with my son, but he need space and so do I. I kind of like it for now, until the house sells. I am on divorce number three. Guess I just wear them out? I am a tough one. I don’t hide that fact. And I figure if we can’t make it , we never would. I mean its either it, or not. If he walks away, well, believe him. I don’t chase. I show up and work hard for what I want, you walk. Well, thank you for making room for another to step up.
So, what are you doing for the Lord these days? Oh, you went to church and threw some cash into the offering? Your banking on God to do the work needed? You’ve done your part? Um, yeah, ahh, no, your not done honey bun/bud. Like you go to church sweet pea and you bear Gods name and KNOW HIS WORD! And you best read again. Yep, right now, open that dusty thing off and drink the medicine honey. And then, get to stepping. And begin to practice that shit. I mean you not just suppose to drink from the fountain and sleep it off.
What good is a good word if not shared and practiced. Does it not say a Workman who need not be ashamed? A workman studied, approved? Is this is? Are we just supposed to drink from a fountain and not make sure it is pure and clean for all to drink? What is our purpose here? Are we not reaching back to eden? How do we get there and leave our brother and sister on the street cold? How do we succeed in this? What is the benefit to leave other cold and alone? What about the Good Samaritan? Each church should have a good Samaritan fund and each member should practice being that Good Samaritan.
Fear is not of God! God hath not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. Do we believe what we hear? Or has the world overtake the voice of Gods word? Have we forgotten or taken leave of our senses? Have we lost our minds? Have we forgotten to Give and it shall be given unto thee, pressed down and shaken over, shall men give unto your bosom. What is going on here? What has happened to Gods people?Which is all of us? Like hello? We each matter deeply to our Source, God, whatever you call it, him, her. That same spirit is in each of us. Each of us. If you see a devil, its in you.
Get straight about it.
Lord, I lift up the people on this planet and issue a intention, a prayer. I call us back to the word and I call us back to source energy. I call us back to each other and remind each person that we all are connected and without us all, we fail, we collapse. Hello! It is a ball we live in, a cell, and we all matter here. That is the point here. Not all this wars and whatever. That is just so what in the sense of why are we analyzing static. Static is what we don’t want. Like what do we all want? Tantrums don’t work? Bombs don’t work? Guns are not working if you can see? What do we all need to DO about it? Maybe being a Good Samaritan is the way?
If we were kinder to folks, and helped out like our Mama’s taught us to, the world would be a better place. I mean all I have is a twin mattress and a floor with blankets and a Mama that lets me help people like this. But I have been like this forever. I brought people home for help. And she gave it. She did not always like it? But she honored me for doing it anyway and helped me. She fed my new friend tonight. And I am grateful for a woman like that, no matter how crazy she might seem at times, her heart it true to the practicing of her preacher daughter.
So, the next time you have it within your power to DO something. Remember fear is not of God. And follow the leading of God, give, and it will be given unto you, pressed down, shatter and running over, shall men give unto your bosom. I live my life by this and see great results!!!
Let God use your hands to be the healing for others and see God heal you. xo
Cast your net wide. We are fishers of men are we not?
