Those Amongst Us………

Matthew 25: 35 ~ 40

Don’t forget those amongst us who face life alone,

Don’t forget those amongst us who sit or beg on the street “Can you spare some change please”

Don’t forget those amongst us when they beg and fear, tears, uncertainty and pain is reflected in their eyes,

Don’t forget those amongst us who are tormented through lack of sleep,

Don’t forget those amongst us, who have not eaten today,

Don’t forget those amongst us who have not heard the words “I love you”

Don’t forget those amongst us who have not felt a human touch for a while,

But……….

There are those amongst us who can bless a stranger today,

There are those amongst us, who can give a smile, a touch, a hug,

There are those amongst us who can give someone a drink or something to eat,

There are those amongst us who can ease the flow of tears of those who cry,

There are those amongst who can love and ease someone’s pain,

Be kind to those amongst us and be a blessing each and everyday.

This Poem was inspired by Neil, a man I saw begging in Oxford Street on Saturday 6th December 2914. My daughter and I gave him something to eat, a hot drink and a hug. He was so overcome that he cried and I cried with him.

When you said………. My Heart Said.

Psalms 27:8 ~ When you said ” Seek My Face” My heart said to you, “Your Face Lord, I will seek ”

How many times in life has someone said something to you and your mouth answers but your heart says something else. Our heart contradicts our mouth, working in opposition. Our mouths profess’ but our hearts believe.

Dallas Willard said ” You can live opposite to what you profess, but you can’t live opposite to what you believe”. our heart holds the key to who we truly are.

In the realm of the spirit our heart speaks louder than our words. Our heart can be breaking with emotional pain, grief, heartache, rejection or anger and we have a big smile on our face, but after a while the pain can no longer be hidden and will spill over in our everyday life and actions.

So when God says he speaks to us he is speaking to our heart. What was the last thing he said to you and what did your heart say? If he asked you to forgive someone, your lips may have said yes but what did your heart say? If he asked you to bless someone with an act of kindness, your lips may have said yes, but what did your heart say? he may have asked you to apologise to someone, your lips may have said yes but what did your heart say?

Dear Heart, it is time for our lips to align with our heat. Don’t betray your hearts desire with wrong words.
