Feeling Fresh

Sunday, February 04, 2018

May this work always feel fresh and new!

I took a small break in January and now I am back!!! I called it #TakeItEasyJanuary :) ha! 

I saw something last week and instantly wanted to share.....Keep reading!

I recently watched a video where a celebrity showed love to one of their followers on social media. As I watched this video my heart leaped out of my chest. This guy Jake left a comment on Will Smith's Instagram page and stated: "How does it feel to get 2 million views? If only I had one shot to save the world." Will Smith went on his Instagram stories and shared the comment and urged his followers to go and show Jake some love! OMG! Seems small right? Well, I was sobbing!!!! I instantly thought about how Will Smith has probably become accustomed to huge audiences. He's been in the spotlight since he was a teenager, 2 million views on an internet post is nothing new to Will. But Jake...Jake wanted to share more. Jake has a voice, and wants to be heard! He left a simple comment on a post and went about his day. But I know that God had plans for Jake! God wanted to show Jake that people still care. God wanted to show Jake that he mattered. Will Smith was simply the vessel of obedience in this moment. 

Why did this touch me so much??!!?? 

I started to think about a few things and was moved to write this post! What do I have that someone else would love to have? What do you have that someone else would love to have? I urge you to find a way to give someone something today. Something that you are just used to having, something that you barely blink at because it's a way of life for you. Give it away today. That post made me feel so FRESH! It gave me a fresh perspective on my blessings! It gave me a fresh perspective on giving to people. No matter how small, I encourage you to use your platform responsibly and I pray a fresh feeling of gratitude for you reading this right now. 

My prayer for today is that you feel overwhelmed with gratitude by giving back to someone in need. May you feel fresh and new in life by simply paying it forward. You never know who needs that moment! 

And he who was seated on the throne said, Behold, I am making all things new. Also, he said, Write this down for these words are trustworthy and true. And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty, I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment. The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God and he will be my son.
