There’s Nothing I Can Do…?

“ without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayer”   
   — Paul The Apostle

So, today is about going a little deeper. On Thursdays, I will attempt to write about principles that cause our world to be a better place, our lives to ascend and our inner man to mature. It is what I call, Deep Thought Thursday. This blog is about life strategies that can be used in every area of your life (home, business, spiritual, etc). I don’t believe in compartmentalizing our lives. Anytime we attempt to be someone different at work versus at home versus at church versus anywhere, what we are really doing is posing.

Do you have an attitude of gratitude for those that surround you? Many times we can become quite self indulgent and forget that who we are is very much connected to who we interact with everyday. Do we really care about our family, neighbors and friends? The people around us are a critical part of who we are and this fact cannot be underestimated.

Many of us pray and ask for what we want or need in life, but here is a thought, thank God for and get involved with the people in your life more often. They are a gift from God and every gift from God is good and beautiful. Yes, we can thank God and should thank Him for prosperity and health, but even above that, we should give Him thanks for those who live with us daily. We are connected to them. I know what you are thinking, and yes, there are people connected to you that have hurt you and it is hard for you to do anything for them, but is it really hurting them when you hold that grudge and bitterness inside or is it hurting you? The answer is, it is really hurting you. So, find a way to mend the bridges and heal the past hurts so that you live a life that is tasteful and refreshing to those around you.

We all know someone who is going through a hard time. Isn’t there a flaw in the reasoning that says there is nothing we can do?

At the water cooler this week, discuss getting involved to help someone in need instead of gossiping about the boss or the office mole.

What are you doing to help someone in need? Encourage us all, leave a comment.
