As I sit and have my cup of coffee with Jesus, I have been thinking about the chapters I’m reading in Henri Nouwen’s book, LIFE OF THE BELOVED. He speaks a lot about brokenness, but he also speaks about BLESSING.
He says, “To give someone a blessing is the most significant affirmation we can offer”. Whether we ask the Lord to bless our children as they leave the house, or bless those who persecuted you, (that’s a hard one), or when you’re driving down the street and you see a homeless person, to share a blessing. It is bringing the Christ in you to others.
Today I’m going to strive to BLESS our world, one person at a time. I’m going to ask Jesus to touch their hearts, to fill them with PEACE, to HEAL their brokenness, and to bless them this day. Have a blessed day!
