Do you have a word that is kind of your life mantra? If I had to pick one word that I am continually challenged, encouraged, and inspired by it would be “imagine”. So many things come to my mind when I think of this word. I like to picture a world different than we all know. Here are some of the thoughts that challenge me as I imagine…
Imagine a world where we really live out loving our neighbors.
Imagine if we were patient with our kids as we so desperately try to instill patience in them.
Imagine if we all believe we are masterpieces that God created.
Imagine if we all really lived in the belief that we have something to offer.
Imagine if we all believed to our core that we are accepted like we were created.
Imagine if we put our phone down and picked our kids up more.
Imagine if we used our gifts and talents for good.
Imagine if we cared for the widows and orphans.
Imagine if we gave our time away to help and be there for others.
Imagine if we truly lived like we had no tomorrow.
Imagine if we stopped moving and talking long enough to listen.
Imagine if we decided to live a purposeful life rather than watching it pass us by.
Imagine if we truly loved one another.
The beauty of these thoughts is that we don’t just have to imagine them. We can act. We all have a part to play.
This world can be changed. Let us walk in that belief. Let us face this week knowing that there is no one else like us and we have something to offer the world and those close to us. We all have a part and together we can imagine and act in creating a greater tomorrow.
I often lose perspective and get lost in my selfishness. I need reminding to step outside of myself and imagine a bigger and much better story – a world that can be changed by simple daily steps. I hope and pray as we start a new week you will join me in imagining and being a part of creating a more beautiful tomorrow.
