Be a Blessing

“Gratitude is a major choice and a necessity in changing your life. When you recognize even the smallest gifts of life you will see how blessed you really are. “When God is for you, who can be against you?” God is always for you. God is always loving you. You are here to be a blessing to the world.”

At our Seaside Center for Spiritual Living we often sing “I Am a Blessing to the World.” I believe each of us can be just that. I see this in the life of my daughter and the way she has lived her life. She has taken on a job that is demanding and challenging. I can’t imagine how she handles it all and yet is still a fabulous wife, mother, and friend. She loves it all and says she feels she’s “making a difference,” and she is. In her own way she is changing the world. It has been said that when one butterfly’s wings move it is felt half way across the world. I see my daughter’s loving and giving nature as a true blessing to the world.      

As we consciously bring ourselves back, day after day, to the actual awareness of God as one infinite being, God manifesting and expressing Itself as individual being, we understand more fully that all power flows out from us and through us, as a benediction and blessing to the world.      

Most of us want our lives to mean something. We also want to make a difference in our world. Be it big or small we all have a gift we can share. In God’s eyes there is no big or small. Each of us is unique and precious in our own unique way.      

In Julia Cameron’s book Blessing, she writes “I am both the listener and the song. I am both the composer and the note.” Each of us makes our special contribution to life. Everyone has an affect on our world by our thoughts words and deeds. It can be for the better or the worse. It’s our choice. We can be a blessing to our world.      

Today in all I do and in all I say, I am a blessing to the world.
