“He is a fountain and not a drain.”
Wow! What a powerful statement!
The fact that someone is a fountain of positive energy rather than someone who would drain all the energy from you, was certainly a huge compliment.
I want to be a fountain and not a drain! I want to be positive and spew out with sunshine and love. I want to share my “fountain of hope” with others to show them all that Jesus has done for me by radiating joy.
I don’t want to be negative. I don’t want to be THE DRAIN. I don’t want to constantly be finding things wrong with other people and focusing on all the negative things going on in the world around us.
What if today we choose to be intentional about focusing on not being a drain?
What if, instead, we work hard to be the fountain? The one sharing the love of Jesus by shining a light, radiating a sense of peace and sharing hope to a world of…….well……drains.
Are you ready? Let’s get this fountain flowin’!
WOW. So many ways to connect with others “in person” while not actually being “in person.”
Virtual took on a whole new meaning when the pandemic hit. We were scrambling for ways to connect with those we like, love and work with to maintain relationships. Some office teams even had virtual happy hours where everyone brought their own drink of choice, logged on to the same Zoom meeting and shared, laughed and connected. Just to keep relationships going.
It’s amazing how this concept seems so new to us. But “a virtual meeting of connection” is the way Jesus has connected with us for over 2,000 years. We can sit in our own living rooms, with our own Bibles reading our own devotions of choice and feel the presence of Jesus in the same room.
We have access to Him through prayer 24/7. Every single day of the year. We can talk to Him, cry with Him and sit with Him any time we want; no access code needed. Just a simple prayer of confession and a friend request to have a relationship with Him.
I love the new technology and all that it offers for us. I love that we were able to find ways to connect during such a low time in our world. I love that we were able to tap into this thousand-year-old concept of spending time together virtually.
Thank you, Jesus for preparing the way ……. one virtual meeting at a time.
