What expands your reason to keep on keeping on?
My dad used to teach my youth Sunday School class at Bethel. One of his common, go-to directives to us …. over and over and over (think soap-box, broken-record) … (you ain’t heard a soap-box til you hear a Verle A. Coon soap box!) was: “give until it hurts, then give just a little bit more”!
Misery and sadness shrink the heart, shuts down brain cells, and slowly and painfully detach you from the world of the Holy. You will move deeply into your soul-story when you refuse to pollute your mind with other people’s choices, and allow the Light of the Savior of the World to cleanse every dark thought.
His light cleanses. Let Him in.
When it all comes down, you and I yearn to love and be loved. So, how about releasing the dark thoughts about those who have hurt you, tormented you, used you, lied about you, attacked you … RELEASE … and, allow room for their story to be replaced with fresh loves. Loves whose hearts are open to accept the Father’s love. Holding on is a choice. Release is also a choice.
Let the Word of God move you. Let His Spirit soar into all the crevices and cavities where hurt and pain linger, and find love on His terms – by giving love first.
Give love away.
Find one who needs to see the hope of the Great Healer today – it won’t be hard. Hope-hungry souls are all around us. Shed light from His love in their direction. Your healing comes from giving His love away … until it hurts … then just a little bit more.
Give love away.
