Have you blessed someone today?

Bless You 

Ever notice the edge on people whenever you go to the store, work or in public. It’s incredible how certain moments of our day can have a snowball affect on its emotional outcome. I was looking at an image on the MSNBC site a few weeks back and there was a man whose life was ending after a series of bank robberies at the hands of authorities on a highway in Illinois. Imagine his day starting perhaps with a kind word. Chances are he bounced out of bed overcome with a certain expectation of his life, which was not being met. Decided to take this all or nothing stance to retrieve sanity from a dire situation and as a result ended up on a highway in Illinois in a body bag. What if a stranger fell into his path with a kind word? A blessing! My point is that every day we encounter people whose souls are snatched by the grips of despair, that a kind word could be a catalyst to a repentive mind and salvation. There is a piece in the bible in Psalm 129: 8. It says this “While those who go by do not say, the blessing of the Lord be upon you! We bless you in the name of the Lord!” It illustrates this point, even though we encounter others who do not offer words of encouragement or blessing doesn’t mean that we can’t bless them. Bless and encourage someone with a kind thought or gesture. There are plenty of discouraging spirits around us continually, but a kind word or blessing destroys its presence and plants seeds for hope and restoration.

May God bless everyone who reads this with good health and prosperity in these rough times.

Amen!!
