I would like to pass on something more than the flu to others.
Think about how easy it is to get someone else sick,
without even trying
You show up & so does the flu~
even when you don't even know you have it.
But then the next person gets it & the next one & ...
You get the picture?
What are you passing on when you show up?
What do leave behind when you leave a room?
And you may not even been aware that you are leaving "it" behind.
My heart's desire is to leave a piece of
& not a piece of me.
What if everyone around you caught the
PEACE OF JESUS
when you left a room.
What if there was so something so dramatically different
when you entered a room that everyone wanted it?
Oh how I have been in the presence of those people
who just beam
& they don't even have to say a word~
because you just know that they know
& you want a piece of it.
I remember the first time I "saw"
My precious Marian ~
who I met for the first time at her house~
at my very first bible study over 26 years ago
WHO I wanted
from the moment she answered the door
and that is when it all began~
My thirst & My hunger
for so much more of
loves me so much & loves you so much
HE will lead you to
those someones & to those some places
so you will see
Just look around you.
You may be that person
& you may be right next to that person
who is looking at you
wanting what you have,
but don't know how to "catch" it.
may not always be so bright when I walk in a room
especially when I am carrying other stuff that
HE wants to carry.
But I know that
I have to just show up & you have to show up,
wearing our best selves
and that is
JESUS in our heart~
no elderberry syrup
can get rid of
Catch the fever.
Live for JESUS.
Become contagious with
will shine from you
when you don't even realize that
so that everyone around you will no longer be sick.
Then HE said to her,
“DAUGHTER YOUR FAITH HAS HEALED YOU. GO IN PEACE"
(And thank you Marian for being contagious with JESUS)
