quiet time reflections today - God's Will?
God's Will for our lives is more often a simple ministry of love right we're at, than something grandiose and famous. Our lives in Christ are in a sense a healing ministry, in that we allow ourselves to be used by Him wherever and to whomever He sends us. It is your business and other's to go forth, being vulnerable & available face to face, for that is the only way of bringing them to Me. For when you are face to face with them, and once you love them, then I can speak through you and heal them. His love that burns inside us impels us on the road to seek for Christ in the stranger's face or feel the absence of His touch, then to be His hands and heart in healing. "Make friends of God's children; help those who are weak; forgetting in nothing, His blessing to seek."[William D. Longstaff] "Oh the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person; having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but to pour them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, knowing that a faithful, loving hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then, with the breath of kindness, blow the rest away." [George Elliot] If your heart is right with my heart, give me your hand.
