On a certain morning just a short while ago, I went into the kitchen after our devotion to pack up lunch for everyone. Our daughter came in just a while later and said, “Good morning mum. God bless you in Jesus’ name”. I felt I didn’t hear her well so I asked what she had said and she said to me, “God bless you mum”.
I was stunned to say the least…
The norm was for her to say, “Good morning mum” and I reply with “Good morning darling; God bless you in Jesus name”.
I asked her why she said that and she only told me that she just wanted to bless me too.
I wasn’t expecting that at all. And as simple as that may seem, it got branded on my soul.
Did her action touch me in a special way? Of course it did.
There are people who minister to you (spiritually / physically) continually or have done so in the past. . . Right?
Today, take time out to pray for and reach out to such persons letting them know how they are sources of blessings to you and how much you appreciate them. If you feel you should give them something, please do not refrain from giving them that gift. Plan to pay them a visit. Put a call through to them. You wouldn’t know just what those encouraging words could mean to them at this time.
We tend to assume that those ‘up there’ can take care of themselves in all ways.
But the truth is that they feel overwhelmed sometimes too. They suffer lack sometimes too. Because they are human like us too
Move away from the norm today.
They have been the ones blessing you but it’s time for you to bless them back in whatever way you can.
Choose to be a blessing too!
Can I hear the phones ringing?
