Like people that I know... Wednesday inspires me.
For some reason Wednesday reminds me of a person who gets along with everyone...a person who inspires the working people to keep on, keeping on. Wednesday is kind of a catalyst. Once we touch Wednesday... we are encouraged and push on to the weekend.
You know what I think about the human spirit? I think the human spirit is a catalyst. A catalyst can be anything that instigates change.
Like Tea to Water.
Like Light to Darkness.
Like Love to Haiti.
Somehow love is beginning to penetrate the darkness and pain the Haitians are experiencing. The long awaited help is arriving. The despair is being answered. The grieving can begin. Starting over... is on its way.
Crisis is the worst place to be. I have never known anyone that has said, please put me in a crisis so that I may grow. Nope. And not me either.
I've been in crisis.
I've been in the dark.
I've been in the struggle.
I've been at the end.
I have experienced the human spirit as a catalyst in places I didn't want to be and as hope for places I longed to be.
You are a catalyst to someone- me too. You may be the light in the darkened room. You may be the kindness that turns the hate. You may be the $5.00 that feeds a belly. You may be the smile that changes a day. You may be the love someone has never felt.
If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth. 1 John 3:17-18 NIV
You are the human spirit. You are God's hands, his heart, his words... his love. You are the human spirit that changes the world around you...your little world...that touches a bigger world.
Today remember someone who has been your help in times of need. Then think about someone you have helped.
Be inspired by your own human spirit.
