Awakening a Keen Observer

How we look at something, our angle, the position we stand in, makes a difference in what we see. We all see with eyes that avoid sometimes seeing those who are really truly in need. Check out this article, and the series of reports that go with them. A friend referred me to them. They give our lives some perspective.

And just when we think we've figured it all out something like this breaks in... and we suddenly feel some sense of priviledge and power. Power because we have the means and the ways to make things happen that save us from most of the misery that is felt in the world. We are inside somewhere reading this with electricity in a probably most comfortable place. We have too much too do sometimes because we have too much, too many clothes to wash, shelves to dust, floors to vacuum...etc. You know this I don't have to tell you.

So what do we do after we have prayed for those who are bringing aid to those most in need? What action can we take in this world that would make a difference? Others have had good ideas and carried them through...why not each one of us...why not? No reason except that somehow we have been made to feel powerless when really we are so very powerful.

As the sabbath approaches, Reformation Sunday and Monday All Saints day. let's look to those who have gone before and made a difference. Let's be empowered by those who have shown the way. it was no easier for them. Listen! I believe God is calling you... Get ready...Your chance to say YES is coming... be ready.

God abide
