“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”1 Peter 4:10 NIV
Today’s small coffee break is from Rebel Tea & Coffee in Fort Meyers, Fl. I went there on my birthday last year, loved it but haven’t been back. Maybe I will go back this year on my birthday. While we sip, let’s talk about small touches.
“Love never gives up”.
1 Corinthians 13:4 MSG
So much can be communicated through a small touch.
A reassuring pat of the hand.
A gentle tug on the elbow of someone who you want closer.
Holding a hand.
A small touch can make a bad thing okay, an okay thing good and make a good thing great.
Small touches are difference makers in a relationship, in a life.
They can be the first thing we unconsciously give and the first thing that we unconsciously withhold.
When we struggle, we when are angry, when we are hurt, we withhold the small touches.
It’s easy to forget how important they are to us and to those we love.
Wherever you are at in any of your relationships it might be a small touch that makes a difference.
Don’t worry about starting big- start small.
What small touch do you need to receive?
What small touch do you need to give?
Prayer changes your atmosphere.
Prayer changes your attitude.
Prayer changes your actions.
Prayer changes you.
“Are you hurting? Pray.
Do you feel great? Sing.
Are you sick? Call the church leaders together to pray and anoint you with oil in the name of the Master.
Believing-prayer will heal you, and Jesus will put you on your feet. And if you’ve sinned, you’ll be forgiven—healed inside and out.
Make this your common practice: Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you can live together whole and healed.
The prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with.
(James 5:13-18 MSG)
The most powerful thing in your life is prayer.
It is the catalyst for all change in your life.
Pray whenever you can,
for whatever you can,
and for as long as you can.
