Affirmation: “I am love but love can only exist if it’s spread. I will spread my love today.”￼￼
It’s true the world is falling down around us. As the Bible says you cannot put New Wine an old wine skins.
￼￼“And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins.”~ Mark 2:22
But I say similarly, that you cannot build a new house on old foundations. If you try to expand your life in a more positive direction then that means you’re going to have to allow the old life to die away. Becoming a new person means allowing the old person to fade just as well. It also applies to knowledge. When are you taking in a new form of knowledge, you have to forget what you think you’ve known all along.￼
Jesus was the new wine of that time. Hopefully, many can see who the new wine of today is. ￼ But getting back to the world, it’s the same for this system of things. The new foundation and house that they are building, will not be one of great moral value. We all know that. For those that follow me, they know exactly what to expect. Still, you can continue building your “foundation and house” so to speak, in a better way. The more people who do this, the better chances we have of changing the direction in which the new system will be built. Our thoughts for today lead us to do something that will help lead us in that direction. Spreading love!￼ did you know that something only exists when you look at it? Some thing is only real when it is acknowledged? Well, the same goes for the people in your life. If you don’t acknowledge them then the relationships begin to fade away.￼￼
Considering the virus and how it sent America and other countries spiraling into a state of lockdown… then adding the power outages being predicted, imagine for a moment that you could not get in touch with the people that you love any longer? How would you feel having to silently and emotionally say goodbye? Often in life we take the people and things that we love for granted. We will touch base on this a lot throughout this month.
Continuing, many times people say things￼ they don’t mean, or they say what they mean, in a very ignorant way. What about all the times that you were invited to go somewhere by somebody that you loved and you simply just didn’t feel like it and put your own feelings first? Many people don’t realize no it makes other people feel when someone takes the time out to invite them somewhere and they’re rejected. Even if it’s not a person’s intentions to make anyone feel badly, it still does. Or how many times were you supposed to call somebody back and never did? You’re a busy person with a very busy schedule that’s different. Of course it’s expected for the people in your life to be understanding. However if you have the time, how to put the people in your life first. Doing so makes you feel wonderful and makes them feel wonderful too.
Today, write a letter to someone that means a lot to you don’t email it or text it. Don’t call them on the phone either. Write how you feel, with old fashioned pen and paper￼￼￼￼￼￼. It makes people feel so good to receive something in the mail by surprise. And it makes people feel thought of too. Make a note that as you continue forward not just for today or the week, but the month in the year as well… That you try to send a little something to each person that you love. Mark it on your calendar to send a little card or just a few lines of a hello. The main idea is to stay in touch with the people that you care about the most.
Don’t take them for granted because you may not always have them.￼
