People are People but each is a seedling
We are all PEOPLE
It’s not an accident, what’s happening today. It’s destined to be. You’re not an accident the way you are today; it’s part of the plan. The people in your midst are not there by mistake they’re important and they’re your people. Family, friends, parents, children, spouses, they’re your people. Even your foes or the ones you find it difficult to connect with are your people. These people are just that “people”, they will get it right and they will get it wrong, as often as you do. They too are struggling with their own imperfections and are seeking solution and understanding. If you are confused by your people, know this, it may not be them you’re y bigger that is involved. Nothing is really up to us, is it? We are all in a process of purification as we are sprinkled with living water, that is knowledge of how to find our way back to our sameness. What is our sameness? Hang in there we will get to that soon.
People Sail In and Out but each is Important
People sail in and out of our lives. Some are there for just a short time, others for a long journey; some are there for life. It doesn’t matter the amount of time for whatever it ends up being, their purpose is important.
Have you ever been a part of a family? Well of course you have. Though our families may be as diverse as our people they are nonetheless our family. Some have every memory entwined and points of connection so deep. Others may have connections separated by miles and yet the distance is short. Some have a desert between them and to connect is so difficult. No matter, for we’re all in this together and new people are always sent to fill the gaps or voids, of distance and or pain.
God designs families and He is constantly impressing upon us that our people are our family. All people have a role in our lives, as we are all His children and ultimately we’re all family.
It’s amazing how little we understand this concept. How we put our energies more into trying to figure out our people and less into spending time with the One that matters most. Leaving less time to trust in His promise. He is the way to all understanding, He is AGAPE, unfailing love, our Father. A father who never abandons, who always wants to hear about our day and has joy when we do good and disappointment when we stumble, and yet He is always there to pick us up. We try to throw Him away and still He never goes. He places us in His constant protection and even carries us when we need Him.
His Unfailing Love is Where Our Sameness Is Constant ...
Now, these people who share in our life, good, bad or indifferent, they're experiencing life and its sameness with us, for a time together. Yet regardless of the sameness, the reaction and or outcomes to it are often quite different among people. The sameness lies in one thing; He is always the same Father. He never chooses favorites or takes sides. He is always LOVE. Unconditional, unfailing love, the kind of love we are supposed to be giving to all of our people.
People are innately good and yet people happen to people and things happen to people. Some are purposeful in a good way and some even neglectful or what is considered bad, depending on whom you talk too. Many of the people either you yourself or those people around you have things that have happened or are happening, that are out of their control. They are still people, they are still His and we can always stop and look for the sameness in each of us. The good seed untouched by life, the seed of God that lies in each of us within our hearts. This seed is in each and everyone, some have been watered and fed, while others have been wilted and trampled. A seed remains and given the opportunity to be seen for what it is, to be seen as worthwhile, simply because, it is in this seed that we find our sameness. It is the seed of our Father’s love, where we connect and that point of connection is constant.
Look for Love the Sameness in One Another
Our people will disappoint, we will disappoint. Our people will be amazing and we will be amazing. We just have to keep working on loving that seed that our Father gave us, the seed of His unfailing love. The seed in each of us, which deserves more attention, that seed that deserves all of our attention. So no matter what, water that seed for when it grows, the beauty will spread everywhere and people will just get it. Never ever throw that seed away, but if you do, He will catch it and place it right back where it belongs. When spending time with our people, we should try hard to remember they are a seedling of God and they are worth everything. No matter what, because that is the way He loves us. If we have trouble seeing that in others then just spend more time watering the seed in your own heart and pray that it grows as it should by His will and not your own.
Seeds Always Grow Roots
Also when we spend time nurturing a seed it grows roots and those roots are strong and hold up under pressure.
Pretty Cool WHen You Think About It
"Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."
