What struck me about this was
the phrase, "blessings that others would have received.” Would have received if only I had acted on the Lord's promptings. Someone may have gone without a blessing that they needed because of me.
A missed blessing could have been as simple as a phone call we didn't make, an e-mail we didn't responds to, a friend we didn't encourage, or a lonely person that we didn't call on. Had we done these things, we may have initiated a blessing that someone desperately needed. Who knows where God would have taken it from there.
Sometimes we simply need to get the blessing started so that God can finish it. God finished many things on Fridays. He finished creation on a Friday. He completed his plan for salvation on a Friday when Jesus declared, "It is finished." John 19:30.
I think it's a good day to finish the work that God set in our hearts to do this week. Someone needs a blessing. God is asking you to be a part of it. How great is that?
I have phone calls to make. What has been on your mind this week?
I would love you to share news of the blessings others will receive today because of you. Please leave a comment ~ you may be an inspiration (or a blessing) to others!
