Sharing God's love with the world, one heart at a time.

The Time is Now

5 Comments

As I sit here looking out the window, I am watching some awesome clouds moving across the most beautiful blue sky. There are some basic puffy clouds seen on most normal days, and there are huge ominous dark clouds moving in. As I watch the view changing by the minute, it caused me to think of how our minutes, days, weeks, months and years are constantly moving and passing by. Our lives are constantly changing.

How are we using that time? How many good works and acts of faith are we putting off until the “perfect” time? How many lives are left in desolation, how many hearts are empty because of our selfishness, laziness or pride?

I propose that you take a few minutes to sit back, breathe in the Love of God, and think about some of those things that you harbor in your heart. Things you would like to do for someone or maybe something you need to say. Those things that pop up in your head every now and again, reminding you that the Lord is calling you through a gentle whisper or a powerful wind. Those thoughts that are sparked in your mind and heart that you are trying to ignore or are putting off until……

The time is now.

What are you holding back? Make the decision to do one thing today that you have been thinking about. One thing that will start a chain reaction of sharing the love of Jesus.

What will be that one extra act of love you will do today?

Maybe forgive that one person who is tearing you up inside and holding your spirit bound? Or ask forgiveness from someone you have hurt?

Listen patiently and lovingly to someone who needs a caring ear and heart?

Send a letter of gratitude to someone in your life that had a positive impact on you?

Or to simply send a note or card to let someone know they are loved?

Offer to help in some way…babysitting, providing a meal, visiting an elderly person in need of some socialization, volunteering?

Provide cash, food, necessities to someone that you know is in need? Maybe anonymously?

Smile at a perfect stranger or someone who is having a bad day and is not being very friendly?

Offer to take someone to Church with you?

Share the Good News of Jesus’ saving love and mercy with someone in darkness?

Today is the day. The Time is Now.

How will you honor the Lord with your time today?

 

30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. 31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

Mark 12:30-31

  1. Mother Teresa once said, “It is in the small things that we do.” I think sometimes we think we have to be a “Moses” in order to move mountains in the lives of others. When most of the time a card or phone call will do it. “God calling us through a gentle whisper or powerful wind.” I like the way you phrased that. Isn’t it amazing how God can make us think if it is only through a cloud? Enjoyed reading and good post. God Bless, SR

    • Heather, you are so right…now is the time. You are a blessing to so many through your love for the Lord, your honesty and ministry. So happy that I met you and so many beautiful souls through this community. May God continue to bless you and work through you.

      Now is the time for all of us to pray as we’ve never prayed before, for eyes and ears to be opened, and for conversions. I am seeing miracles every day:-)

      Love and hugs,
      Bernadette
