Spread the word! Don’t hold it in and don’t let anyone convince you that you are not a Word spoken in time for a reason.
Each of us has a mission, something to accomplish and someone to touch. There is something in you and you alone which can make a difference in someone’s life.
Unfortunately some are convinced that they don’t have much to offer. Some have been told that because of who they are they have nothing spiritual to offer others. They said the same of the Christ. What good can possibly come from Galilee? Isn’t this Joseph’s son? “If you find that the world hates you, know that is has hated me before you (see John 15: 18-21).” As a young gay man I felt I had absolutely nothing to offer. I still at times feel the pain of knowing that some people, who love what I say when I give talks, out rightly reject me when they find out I am gay. Whether one is gay or not, sometimes we feel or are made to feel that we don’t have much to offer. And so we hide in a very small world. I suppose that’s one of the reasons why I started this blog; to reach out in cyberspace, to share a story and a word that will hopefully lift others up. If you find that you are inspired by what is said here, spread the word. Tell others about this blog.
The fact is, each of us has a story that can be an inspiration to someone else. We just need to get out there and spread the word! . . . Someone is out there with your same story who yearns to be lifted up and given a word of hope.
