Greater than riches.

Joy fills my heart this morning in being able to lift a loved one cast down. The power is not me of course, I’m just like an electrician. I know where the power lies and how to connect it through prayer. I’m just a simple gal, in dirty overalls, carrying a tool kit (my Bible). Yet through God’s instruction I can help bring light and warmth to some destitute place, coat emotional wires in a balm of heavenly love so they can connect safely once more, and connect others to the power source (Jesus) so His power can flow in and they too can plug into it for all kinds of needs.
When I pass on there will be very little in the way of material goods to leave behind. Instead my legacy to my children is their childhood “electrical training”, each knowing how to plug into that power and receive miracles in time of need (even the non-believers lol!)

If you won the lottery?

(A hypothetical question as I’ve never played it)

My first thoughts were “I don’t really need anything”, but then I thought deeper and realized there are some things that would be nice (if it were a large amount as implied).

  • It would be nice to own my own house rather than renting, something in the country or by the sea, solid, but modest with a small garden (to grow veggies and flowers) and a couple of spare rooms so my kids (and families) could stay.
  • It would be great to be able to help out my two younger daughters, who are still at the struggling stage, especially my youngest and family who hope to relocate from Mexico to Germany (her husband is German) but need another year to save first.
  • Then I’d like to send large amounts to Gaza and Syria for blankets, stoves, housing and medical aid for all those much worse off than me. The greatest joy in having money is to be able to give to help others.

How often we see things back to front and inside out. Sometimes this whole fabric of society seems that way to me.

We should be sharing not accumulating, helping not condemning, reviving not destroying, even the old foundations on which western society was built seem to be slowly eroding, Heroes gets sent to jail, criminals get compensation. Money from the poor to lines the pockets of the rich and big business overrides a healthy population.

Yet it is within our power to change things, at least within our own small communities, to start positive things that can grow. Under democracy we have power to vote but few of our options seem good.

In this present system one of our greatest powers is in what we buy (many big brand name corporations could be made to prioritize human rights and eliminate dangerous commodities if we boycotted buying their stuff till they did.)

I came across a great quote from Andrew Wommac speaking of how many believers, seeing the need around them,. beg God for revival.
He said, “God is in Heaven with His arms out trying to release His power saying, “Is there anyone who will believe Me? Is there anyone who will stand up and start speaking, living and demonstrating My Word?” ”
The power is with us in every realm already if only we had the faith to stand together and use it.
