Inspired by . . . Hymns of Faith: Make Me A Blessing

Nothing is lost that is done for the Lord,
Let it be ever so small;
The smile of the Savior approves of the deed
As though it were greatest of all.


Real question: Where do you go for good news? Seriously. It there an organization that you know of that consistently reports news that is positive and uplifting? That shows humanity at its best? If so, please share in the comments!

In a world that seems determined to throw at us a steady stream of gloomy, polarizing, and downright evil words and images it has become more important than ever that we "carry the sunshine where darkness is rife."

Ira B. Wilson's song, first introduced in 1924 at a Sunday school convention in Cleveland, Ohio reminds us how to do just that; it's really quite simple:

Tell the sweet story of Christ and His love,
Tell of His pow’r to forgive;
Others will trust Him if only you prove
True, every moment you live.

Give as ’twas given to you in your need,
Love as the Master loved you;
Be to the helpless a helper indeed,
Unto your mission be true.

It's easy to feel overwhelmed when we look at all the bad stuff. It's easy to believe the enemy's lie that kindness and love really don't make a difference.

The truth that the enemy fights so hard to keep hidden is just this:

Good always wins.

Sing this hymn as a prayer to God today.

Make me a blessing, make me a blessing,
Out of my life may Jesus shine;
Make me a blessing, O Savior, I pray,
Make me a blessing to someone today.

Start a revolution of kindness. Be the change you want to see in this world.
