Pardon me

Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it—he will be blessed in what he does. James 1: 22-25

When I woke up this morning the sun was busting through my blinds, shining down on me. I thought to myself  “we should not be afraid to let our sun shine”, in fact we must power up our sun to shine. There will always be obstacles that will attempt to stand in the way of our sun’s beauty but we must not allow these clouds to block our sunlight. Clouds such as loneliness, job related issues, a hard time at school, or any other matters that may affect your view of yourself and also how you allow that view to be promoted.

So the scripture goes hand in hand with the thoughts I had when I first woke up. Don’t just listen to the word, don’t just say you believe in God show the world you believe in God. We show the world this through our actions, by our smile, we show how we believe in God when we persevere through the toughest of times. Only a person of God can be so resilient. We can no longer look in the mirror and see our faults and not look to correct them. Those same flaws will eat us alive, those same flaws do not allow our sun to shine as bright as the Lord has given us the power to let it shine. The last line speaks to all of us, if we can look into Gods law and trust in his word which sets us free from these worldly pains we will be blessed because of our faithful duty to adhere to the Lord’s request. Real rap I don’t necessarily know how to let my sun shine, how to look into that mirror and keep trying to perfect an imperfect being. Yet I believe together we can, as a community loving one another the way the Lord asks us to do I can achieve through you and you can achieve through me because we all give the power to HE, OUR CREATOR. Peace and Grace be unto you!

Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.

    Thanks for sharing. If more of us allow the Holy Spirit to change us and let our light shine before men, they will see our good works and glorify our Father. We can make a big impact in this dark world of sin and pain. Today I read and claimed II Peter 1:1- 10… what a blessing!

    My mother always said to know the word and not follow it after it is imparted on you, is a sin itself. Many of us are blessed by the words contained in the Good book but our lives to no profess what we read. Let today be the beginning of the end of that way of living. We need to start letting others know of Gods teachings. Maybe then we can all stop and say to someone, “PARDON ME………..”

    Todays Read Genesis 12:1-3
