It is easy to watch the birds to return, the flowers bloom and the tree buds become leaves. What is really hard is to watch for God’s word. What are we looking for? What does it look like? Who is doing it? Our first reaction is that we don’t know, we don’t know and it sure is not us. But are you sure?
Being a Night Deacon I have answers very quickly: Saturday morning pancake breakfast, school lunch program, homeless shelter ministry. You do not have to be a church officer to be seeking and carrying our God’s word. Opening a door with a smile, giving a word of encouragement, really asking how someone is doing, wishing a person well. It does not have to be a big event but a small gesture filled with God’s love can share the love of God. That is why I end my blog with Shalom. I want you to have peace, contentment, wholeness, well being, just plain feeling good. So watch for and carry out God’s word.
