Who Can I Bless Today?

June 6, 2017



I cherish opportunities to talk to my mom.  She joined us a few weeks ago for my son’s college graduation. 


We were visiting in my living room and discussing life. She shared her “wake up” prayer each day.


Who can I bless today?


It struck me.  I have been thinking about this wakeup prayer every day since that conversation.  I normally begin my day with quiet time and journaling.  I noticed my focus is more on how I can live better, think better and areas I need resolve rather than how I can bless others. The overall focus is ME.


I want to shift and embrace a new mindset, one motivated by a heart driven desire to live daily life looking for avenues to bless others.


How do I do this?


This past Sunday, more related insights came my way:


Find ways to connect with people who have needs.

Walk slowly through the crowds.


I love the encouragement to walk slowly.  It brings a new sense of peace and intention to daily living.  It is not the norm today as our culture rushes about from task to task, event to event.  Nevertheless, it is a universal need in all humanity to be noticed and valued.  Maybe today, I can bless that one soul in need.



When he saw the crowds, he was deeply moved with compassion for them, they were troubled and helpless.                                                                                 Matthew 9:36
