RECEIVE AND PASS IT ON

Posted on

  Should you find it hard to get to sleep tonight, just remember the homeless family who has no bed to lie in.  Should you find yourself stuck in traffic, don’t be angry.  There are people in this world for whom driving is an unheard-of privilege.  Should you have a bad day at work, think of the man who has been out of work for the last year.  Should you despair over a relationship gone wrong, think of the person who has never known what it’s like to love and be loved.  Should you grieve the passing of another vacation, think of the woman in dire straits, working twelve hours a day, seven days a week, to feed her family.  Should you run out of gas, think of the paraplegic who would love the opportunity to take that walk to the service station.  Should you notice a gray hair in the mirror, think of the cancer patient in chemotherapy who wishes she had hair to examine.  Should you find yourself at a loss and pondering, “What is my purpose in life?” be thankful.  There are those who didn’t live long enough to get that opportunity.  Should you find yourself the victim of other people’s bitterness, ignorance, smallness, or insecurities, remember, this also happened to Jesus.

      Today there may be peace within.  May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.  May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.  Let this presence settle into your bones and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, and bask in the sun.  May you use those gifts that you have received and pass on the love that has been given to you.  May you accept that you are a child of God.
