All kidding aside, and absolutely without bragging or being presumptuous, please allow me to explain the title of this blog. Ask yourself these two questions: How would you like to be perceived by others, and which spiritual entity are you striving to mimic? You have only two choices: Truth or deception.
During my current octogenarian years of residing in a senior living lifestyle, regretfully, I do not socialize with immediate family members, old life-time friends, and acquaintances as often as I used to. Two to six months could easily go by without making face to face or social contacts with them. Whenever we do hook up, I am often greeted with endearing expressions of reunion like this: “Oh, how good it is to hear your sweet voice. I have missed your laughter and spirit. And I have longed to sit and listen to the wisdom you impart and to have you relive all your exciting adventures you encountered while on foreign mission trips.” They also sometimes express that they were just thinking about me the other day, and here I am calling them today.
“Somebody upstairs must really like you!” That is often their conclusion.
Please, please do not think I have been exaggerating this recounting of loved one’s greetings towards belated reunions. For after receiving these warm comments, I am truly humbled, mystified, and grateful as to how others perceive me. And, above all, I give God all the honor, all the praise and all the glory for His infusion and sharing of His love and compassion in my life. I truly praise Him for allowing the Holy Spirit to infuse me in such a godly manner. I praise Him for going before and after me. My sincere prayer is that He will do the same for you.
Therefore, please allow me to continue in prayer for all of you out there:
Dear Heavenly Father, we all stand in awe of You. And we wish to express our gratitude by kneeling before your throne of grace and subjecting ourselves to the righteousness of Your Son, Christ Jesus. Our prayer is to always remain in constant touch with You by living close to You and obeying Your precepts and commandments. It is reassuring to read in Your holy word that You will never leave us nor forsake us. So, according to Your love and kindness, please continue to lead, guide, nourish and protect us daily, and show us Your will for our lives. May we always be a reflection of your continence and glory as You order our steps. Amen and Amen!
