Blessed to be a blessing!

In these most difficult times it’s easy to fall in the trap of holding on to all YOUR stuff. The economy is in shambles, people are at a HIGH level of panic, but there is still HOPE.

Each of us has something to offer; God is allowing a shake down forcing us to work with each other. People who have MUCH should share with those in need. If you want to be blessed, then be a blessing!

Jesus said in “Matthew 5:46 (NLT) If you love only those who love you, what reward is there for that? Even corrupt tax collectors do that much.”

The real blessing is HELPING those who can’t help themselves for the moment. This Holiday season those who can, go to someone you have knowledge of that is struggling and BLESS them real good.

I heard a song stating “see the man standing on the corner holding a sign will work for food, you know the man, he is the one you never give your money too. You can sit there with your window rolled up wondering when the light is going to turn green; you never know what a couple of bucks in his pocket might mean… You can go on with your day-to-day trying to forget what you saw on his face, knowing deep down inside you could have been his saving grace… what if he’s an ANGEL sent here from HEAVEN making certain you’re doing your best to take the time to HELP one another… Are you going to pass that test?”

Time is too short for us to HELP just our families; another song said… “You didn’t bring anything into this world, and you want take anything back, I have never seen a hearse mounted with know luggage rack.”

People of this world… it’s time to change… stop doing business as usual, and allow others outside of your circle of family and friends to eat from your table, giving new HOPE to those who has all but lost HOPE.

Remember! The life you save in the long run just might be your own.

Blessings to all!!!

God corrects those He love

Psalm 119:65 - 72 (NLT)

65. You have done many good things for me, LORD, just as you promised.

66. I believe in your commands; now teach me good judgment and knowledge.

67. I used to wander off until you disciplined me; but now I closely follow your word.

68. You are good and do only good; teach me your decrees.

69. Arrogant people smear me with lies, but in truth I obey your commandments with all my heart.

70. Their hearts are dull and stupid, but I delight in your instructions.

71. My suffering was good for me, for it taught me to pay attention to your decrees.

72. Your instructions are more valuable to me than millions in gold and silver.

Blessings to all!
