It’s Personal.

What makes it different when your heart aches for a loved one or friend that’s having surgery for some type of medical/health complication? …When you see a featured article online about a terminally ill child who lives life simply and has only one wish, and a Go Fund Me?

What makes it different when the evening news reports a rising death toll of 5,000 in a nation oceans away from your cozy piece of home? …When you read the Obituaries in the paper and see a familiar name(s)?

When you see a homeless man in a movie on television? When your eyes meet with a homeless man on the street beside you?

When you see a LOST Dog Poster taped to a street light? …When your dog is lost?

What’s the difference?

It’s personal.

But the thing is, It’s totally personal. BECAUSE EVERY HUMAN BEING (every person on earth) MATTERS.

You may never have your name on the Walk of Fame and in lights. You may never win a trophy or receive any honors or rewards. You may never be told “I love you.” Maybe you don’t think anyone has ever loved you or you don’t feel loved. You could be in a crowded room and all alone inside. Scared.

However, somebody does love you. He’s pretty awesome and quite intriguing. He loves to send you special things along the way, when you least expect them. He’s ever so generous and wants to experience this journey called life with you at your side as long as you live. It gets even better…

He wants you to come and live with Him forever. Where He is there are no more tears.

Jesus loves you just as you were the only one.

And It’s Personal.

What Are People Really Looking For?

In looking over my Blog Stats for the past month, I’ve noticed a trend. More and more people are searching for the Prayer Stop Poem “Are You Ready?” with an unknown author.
This poem is about the second coming of Christ and is written in the point of view of someone living in a home where Jesus isn’t really given any thought or priority. Throughout the poem the concern for the soul grows as it reaches the climax when the speaker’s name is not found written in the Book of Life. He was told by Jesus that it wasn’t seen there.

The last part of the poem by the unknown author is this:

I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight;
Oh, if only I had been ready tonight.
In the words of this poem the meaning is clear,
The coming of Jesus is drawing near.
There’s only one life and when comes the last call,
We’ll find that the Bible was true after all!

This poem gets up to nearly 20 views some days. Most of the days it is being viewed, no matter how small the number. I find this to be very interesting. This Poem post is viewed and sought after more than any other faith-related post on this blog. Perhaps more and more people are seeking Christ, curious to see what He’s all about and if there is true healing…even an eternal life? Is the world really in so much turmoil that the end is drawing near? Are we ready?

I am very happy that this poem has spread around the globe via the internet. In today’s world you do not have to be able to travel abroad to share and spread the Gospel, or help other human beings in need. Today’s technology makes it all possible with just an internet connection, keyboard and mouse or whatever! At any given time, you can reach out and spread the Good News of The Bible, Jesus, and God’s Love for humanity, The Plan of Salvation. At any given time you can encourage those in need of support and prayer anywhere in the world. We are able to reach everyone and let them know that they are not alone. That is what I consider the greatest blessing of the online connection and blogging to be: To share our stories, relate to each other, offer hope to one another, compassion, prayer, and love.

Take me, for example. I am not financially thriving or successful in a career as I’d planned. However, I am blessed to be able to pay the cable/internet bill and have 24/7 online access to the rest of the world. Because of this single blessing alone, I am able to read the stories of others whom I can relate to. I have been enlightened and encouraged by various websites with positive information and support. So I took my blessing and I’m doing my best to extend it in the work of my positive and encouraging words to everyone else. Let the blessing pass on. I have a mood disorder and not every day is good. There are posts in the archives of  that are totally inconsistent with the goal of a positive themed blog. We’re all human, but its our efforts to keep on keeping on that make us.

You can make a difference from where you are right now. You don’t have to wait until you graduate or until you complete something, anything. Nothing is stopping you right now from reaching out into the world to offer your talent, your blessing to others who need to hear from you. Don’t get discouraged. You are special in your own way. 😉
