In and Through me

20 Mar

As I flipped my daily calendar open today I saw this message:

“Celebrate every great thing the lord is doing in and through your life. “

That message inspired me enough that I texted the image to a few friends. Then I looked at the calendar again and my eyes centered on the last 3 words.


That made me think about other views of that phrase:

–because of me

–due to something I did

–living as an example

–being an active citizen

–being a servant to others

Once I prepared that list of related phrases I realized as a Christian woman I have responsibilities! I owe it to others to be there for them and to do good when and where I can.

This of course hearkens back to a few days ago when on this very page I referenced John Wesley’s words about giving. That message was called Generosity and was posted earlier in the week.

Apparently those words, goals, images and ideals are lingering in my thoughts and my daily calendar was the reminder.

Am I making things happen “through me?”

Am I being a blessing to others?

2 Corinthians 9:6-8 “Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”

Am I the cheerful giver God believes I can be?

Hope so!

Lord, assist me in this important task. AMEN.
