Ministry Moment with Michelle: "Make Your Own Happy!"
"Today is the day that the Lord hath sent, let us rejoice and be glad in it!" Just recently on a class assignment I had to create a hypothetical situation where I would explain God and His Holiness to an unbeliever. We were to make sure that we included "The Creation". The professor took it a step further and said just think of explaining to a ten-year old.
Within my explanation, (There was a lot!) I asked the ten-year old to look up, look down, look left, look right and tell me what she saw. As she pointed out things in nature, people, materialistic things like cars & buildings...so started the conversation on our Almighty, Majestic Creator and how he created "all" things & mankind in His image and likeness.
We eventually got to His Holiness & love for all and how He (among other things) expects us to be representatives of His characteristics while on earth. We talked about "The Trinity" and the important roles that each, the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit play in our lives. Because the Holy Spirit dwells within us, leads and guides us; we can choose to be happy, even in the midst of a storm. If we just look around, we can find at least ONE thing in our lives to be happy about. I was blessed to start at home!:-)
My wish for you this week is that you can find ONE thing that will make you smile!
