“Show courage. People need to see what it looks like. Show it. Then feel it.” – Beth Moore
“Stay alert, stand firm…show courage, be strong.” – 1 Corinthians 16:13 (NET)
I need to be more aware of this. I don’t think that I have courage in most situations, but looking back on an event in my life, I most certainly did. Can I see if I showed courage? Not really. Did others see it in me? I hope so. I pray so.
I want to show love and kindness on a daily basis. That is my goal. No matter the situation, I want someone to say that I have been kind and shown love—that His light shines through me.
Blessings and love.
This was being shared on Facebook, so I decided to share it as well.
Some comments that have been made are:
We are all sinners.
This is so true.
Showing love to all is difficult especially if you have been hurt or wronged by someone.
“The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” -Mark 12:29-31
Be a best friend. Simple, right? This is hitting home today. I feel as though I don’t have enough time to be the best friend that I should be.
Looks like this will be mindful goal for next year.
Have you been thinking about your goals, and what you need to work on for next year?
Today I am thankful for the gifts of friendship. Those that God has placed in my path when I needed them the most or when they needed me.
Looking back on how God has gifted me with placement of friends, I am truly amazed at His ability to weave His love into me.
Whether they needed me at the time or I needed them…I am really not sure, but God did. He placed exactly who I needed at the right time.
How has God gifted your life? Looking back on your life, can you see His path?
Don’t wait for one day…enjoy every moment with those you love.
Tell them you love them.
Today, we attend a wedding of a family friend, a dear friend.
“You don’t marry the person you can live with— you marry the person you can’t live without.” – unknown
“The groom always smiles proudly because he’s convinced he’s accomplished something quite wonderful. The bride smiles because she’s been able to convince him of it.” – Judith McNaught
Advice: Always hold hands when talking about finances or something difficult.
So excited for today, excited for them and their adventure.
“Praying that God opens our eyes today to people who feel invisible, who never hear that they are loved and rarely receive a warm embrace.” – Beth Moore
