One person at a time

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

Why is it so hard for you to understand that I don’t need you to try and play catch up? I can hear your heart, even right now in this moment as you run through a list in your head of all the things you think you need to do today. I hear the worry and strife as you try and figure out which piece to do when such that you can do as much as possible and not be late.

What is “late”? What if I could help you totally strike that word from your vocabulary? Yes, I know you have to be in certain places at a certain time and if you miss those fixed appointments then there will be consequences. I’m not asking you to throw time totally out of the window. 

Instead, what if you could flow with my love and grace from moment to moment? When you go outside for a walk and happen to come across a friend who likes to chat, what if doing so was part of the joy and beauty of today? Because when you’re ruled by playing catch up or a list of errands, you’re going to miss the moment.

There is a reason why people come into your life when they do. Some people are only for a season, others for the longer haul, but regardless of how long someone is in your life, know that each interaction matters. Every time you show up with love in your heart you make a difference. And yes, that’s true even with people you only meet once. You make a difference, one person at a time, when you show up with love.

Why? Because I am love and so when you show up with love in your heart you show up with me, even if the other person doesn’t recognise it in those terms. I’m not limited by other people’s perceptions. I am love and I love the world. Show up with love, with me, and together we make a difference, one person at a time.
