Speak Life...

I was on a conference call with an author yesterday, when I was struck by a statement he made: we’re all struggling. I found myself getting lost in that thought because it’s one I’ve had pretty often myself. We’re all doing the best we can to get along, but often times we fail to see that others are in the same situation. So, we make quick judgments where we could offer encouragement; we’re too busy to lend a helping hand; we turn our head because we just don’t want to get involved.

What if instead we offered the encouraging word? What if we made time to help a friend—or a stranger—in need? What if we got involved and made a difference?

Every time I hear the Toby Mac song, Speak Life, it reminds me of the incredible opportunity I have to make a difference in someone’s life—every single day. Words can hurt or words can heal. We’re all just trying to get along in life, so why make it harder on our fellow humans?

We all have the choice to speak life—or not. What will your choice be?

"And now let us begin this journey, the Bishop and people, this journey of the Church of Rome, which presides in charity over all the Churches, a journey of brotherhood in love, of mutual trust. Let us always pray for one another. Let us pray for the whole world that there might be a great sense of brotherhood.

I will now give my blessing to you and to the whole world, to all men and women of good will."

-Papa Francis quote

He does not know you, yet he prays for you.
He will most likely never meet you, yet he loves you.

This is your chance to show your love, for as the Bible teaches, "Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven."
