Peradventure you have been going here and there, working for a purpose. Stop and listen.
I seem to hear or should I say was asked, as you are waking up this morning, you open your eyes and someone, let say an angel is holding your heart in its hands.
You are asked, if this is your last day on this side of eternity, ( and assured in actuality it’s not), what will you do? What singular steps of action will you take?
And the scene changed from my actual location to the epi center of Covid 19 in New York City. I was shown a man holding it down as much as he can. He has a little boy and he said, peradventure it would take time for this Plague to reach Nebraska, so he sent his son, his little boy to Nebraska for safety and continuity.
And then I was brought back to my bed! What singular thing will I invest this last moment doing? I was given time to think, then I was charged/told to live the rest of my years doing that very thing!
I got up went to the bathroom, came back and wrote this. What is that very thing I know deep within me, that I am destined to do?
I have always believed I am called to just a soul, and that, that one soul will reach thousands. The thing is that I don’t know that soul, who that person is, so I will cast my bread upon many waters as the saying goes – Ecclesiastes 11:1! I only need to feed one person with the Word of truth.
My actions – courage in the midst of fear, way of life in the midst of contrariness, my attitude, speech, character, creativity, and ultimately, the totality of my being need only to impact one! Just a soul!
Ecclesiastes 11:1-6 MSG
Be generous: Invest in acts of charity. Charity yields high returns.
2 Don’t hoard your goods; spread them around. Be a blessing to others. This could be your last night.
3-4 When the clouds are full of water, it rains. When the wind blows down a tree, it lies where it falls. Don’t sit there watching the wind. Do your own work.
Don’t stare at the clouds. Get on with your life.
5 Just as you’ll never understand
the mystery of life forming in a pregnant woman, So you’ll never understand the mystery at work in all that God does.
6 Go to work in the morning
and stick to it until evening without watching the clock. You never know from moment to moment how your work will turn out in the end.
My prayer Lord is that I will not fail in this regards. Help me to do the right thing by one as unto many in Jesus mighty name. Amen
