Have you ever just ran into someone and said, "it is really you?"
The big wonder and you knew it was that person all along. I've done this and it is also excited to see the person. This happening to me a few months ago at a parade. I spoke words of why don't we connect in life? Just because we don't go to the same church anymore, doesn't mean we were meant to be divided because of church. God was the one who brought our lives together.
I received a text message the other day from this person and we are going to meet. It made my heart happy because I truly care about her. When I think of the word "YOU", I think of how God made you and how important you really important. Each life was designed by God and a purpose. Many people miss their true purpose because of their own actions or taking on actions of others. God never meant you to be bound by circumstances or people. He wants us to live in freedom of mind, body and soul.
2 Corinthians 3:17 (NIV)
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
John 8:36 (NIV)
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
Galatians 5:13-14 (NIV)
LiVE BY THE SPIRIT13 You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh ; rather, serve one another humbly in love.
14 For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
I have given you some verses today about freedom. Just because we attend a different church, believe a different way, doesn't mean we are not to connect in life. God brings our lives together and we must guard our hearts. Some people were never meant to be in you life, but to cause division or confusion. Others were totally meant to be in your life and you must balance who is good for you and not good for you. Anyone who talks about someone else, will talk about you. The spirit of God leads us to a peace maker and a joy to be around.
Somethings in life, makes me question, "God is this really you?" If it's the right thing to do, it's really God. I want to live what I teach and I do my best daily while being human. I have my own thoughts and my actions to take care of in this life. Hopefully, I think before I speak and watch those kind words flow. I hope your today is amazing and you how important your example is to someone. Mostly, look into the mirror and see yourself. Look deep into your soul and be kind to you. YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE and YOU ARE IMPORTANT! God with the Jesus attitude today and share hope along the way.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
