Blessed To Express

Don’t get it twisted; you and I are blessed. We are blessed and sustained so that we can express the attributes and qualities of God, such as life, love, wisdom, power, beauty, joy, order, harmony, peace, compassion, loving kindness, etc. We are not blessed to flaunt, brag or show-off. God is always purposeful and the purpose is to sustain and prosper the whole body or the entire creation. When we genuinely feel good about ourselves we tend to interact more lovingly toward others including other forms of life such as plants and animals.

Be the blessing that you are right now in this moment. The Spirit of God speaks to us constantly. Be still and listen in this moment, to what and how you are to express. This is what I call “being”. Be open and receptive - knowing Spirit is always speaking to you. Be your authentic self by listening to the still small voice of Spirit. Now feel what each part of this message means to you personally so as to drink it in and digest it. Visualize on your mental screen what these attributes look like on you. Give yourself a "Mo'Nique hug" by wrapping your arms around your body and squeezing "real tight" and feel the sensation that a tender, loving hug delivers.

Bravely take this self-love out and let it reflect in your day. It takes courage to be authentic, listening to and deliberately expressing the LivingSpirit. Oh, I know it's not easy; but it gets easier each time we do it and each time we let it be well with our soul. It's a risk but true love makes a way.

Truth is my expression this moment.
Be breezy in the flow of our LivingSpirit.
Ethel, in the LivingSpirit
