Everyone has a story. I know I am part of the story of those people whom God puts in my life. I try to be mindful that whether I journey with those individuals whether that is for days, months or years, my participation in their story will have a character to it. You have seen those historical timelines, right? If the story of those you spend time with had a timeline, what would your part of the story be called? How cool would it be if your time in the timeline of those around you said: “This is when love intervened.” What an amazing thing that would be and what a wonderful thing to be mindful of as we spend time with people. It is my goal. I fall short most days (errr…I mean I fall short all days) but that is just a reminder that I need God’s Holy Spirit to take me as a vessel for such a work of beauty and love. Wherever and whenever there are glimpses of being that “intervening love”, it hasn’t been me but God working through me…..of that much, I am sure.
I found this little video via author @lensweet twitter feed. It inspired me. What about you?
“Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other’s eyes for an instant?” – Henry David Thoreau
