To Bless is to put a bit of yourself into something. It is to make holy, to change something or someone because of your presence.
Each of us can offer blessings and be blessings. When we bless it is God' deep goodness or God-ness in us that blesses another. Jesus did not bless, but rather, is a blessing. His presence , his goodness engenders life, strength, healing, courage and vitality.
Many people have blessed my life. Usually they blessed me by smile, loving looks, stories, their concern and their care. They have given me strength and courage. You may be at a place in your life where you can easily resonate with blessings, or you may be in a tough place where you wonder if you were ever a blessing or ever blessed.
Wherever we are today, we can believe in the power and possiblility of blessings.
Scripture: 1 Peter 3:8-12
...repay with a blessing. It is for this that you were called -- that you might inherit a blessing.
We can be be a blessing to someone by just a gentle touch or a smile .
Today I will intentionly bless each person I meet
with the gift of my loving presence
