The Bible clearly states that the appearance of an angel scared the shepherds out of their wits! Luke 2:9
What would happen if we got over thinking of ourselves, and instead thought of the other guy and did something to make them happy… How about cooking your family a good dinner at night.
Believe me I would love to cook Ron a great dinner this evening. The day will come when we all regret that we didn`t do more for the ones we love. Don`t waste a minute of your life moaning and complaining about poor me. All you lose is a minute of your life.
Cause here is some news for you…It is not about you. It is not about me. It is about making the world a better place. Go for it. Today is a great day. Something good will happen to you today….if you expect it.
Need a little help? Life too hard? Why not ask for help? Angels await your bidding. YOUR bidding! All they want to do is help you. Clear instructions below!
Psalm 103:20-Praise the LORD, you his angels, you mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word.
So that means that we`d better be saying God`s Word..or else all our bored angels will recline on couches eating bonbons while anxiously awaiting something to do.
How about saying this aloud.—I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me?(Phillippians 4:13 KJ)
Therefore I can and will do….
Lamentations 3:24-The Lord is my portion or share, says my living being (my inner self); therefore will I hope in Him and wait expectantly for Him (NIV).
Therefore I will hope in God and expect him to……
Matthew 6:2a-So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets (NIV).
So I can….take a pan of squares to a neighbour, go to a drop-in play group. Be a friend to someone (they might even live in your house!) or smile at the clerk in the grocery store. Visit a nursing home.
Because life is passing us by…every single day…and when your end comes, you will never regret what you did for someone else…but you will regret the any things you didn`t do.
Ron and I joke about having a ‘quiet’ day. That never happens here. Even though we are technically retired, something comes up to use up our hours, minutes and second.
We do have scheduled events like Doctor appointments on the calender but our really ‘quiet’ days involve people just dropping in for a coffee, or a writing pal calling about some thought or other.
We never turn people away. Think about what we might miss if we didn’t entertain on a whim.
The Bible says we might even entertain angels unaware! We don’t want to miss that opportunity!
Now if you are a timid host, chose not to be afraid.
Buy a few cookies or if you are in the baking mood, whip up a batch, freeze them (deep so a hubby or a gal on a snack rampage) can’t find them. Serve up with a coffee, a tea or maybe a glass of lemonade.
And maybe–you will find an angel gracing your doorstep!
