“17 Was I fickle when I intended to do this? Or do I make my plans in a worldly manner so that in the same breath I say both “Yes, yes” and “No, no”?

21 Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.”  ‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭1:17, 21-22‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Good morning, BlessedOne,

Sometimes life challenges the beliefs of even the most loving people, doesn’t it? I read a quote from the Archbishop of Canterbury, and it stuck, (paraphrased) “When you see the depth of energy that people can put into evil, then there is a flicker of doubt in humanity. It would be inhumane not to react with sadness and doubt.”

Even when we know there are spiritual reasons people make tragic and hurtful and downright ugly decisions that have long-term impact, we still try to make sense of them. So, how are we to pray “positive” prayers while we are hurt and just want the pain to stop? The power of blessing is the key to our healing. 

There is a space that is given to you and me by our Maker. This space … between this breath, and the next is a place of creation: cycles that start or stop, grow or fade, live or die. All possibilities exist from this place. Think about it. What kind of Creator sets that kind of power in place for us?! He thought of everything. You and I have the choice and the power to change our lives, to bring peace into our hearts – through the magical moments that we choose to bless it. 

Bless the person. 

Bless the event. 

Bless the growth. 

Bless the pain’s purpose. 

Bless the journey. 

Between breaths, decide, and bless it. 

Your will, Lord.  Nothing more. Nothing less.  Nothing else. 

Wake up. 

Bless it. 

Go.
