Understanding Your Power To Bless Others
Receiving blessings into your life is a beautiful thing, but it’s even more valuable to bless others. When you get blessings from the Lord and pass them along, you can do more for the world than you can on your own. But one of the most important things about blessing others is understanding how much power you have to do that.
No matter where you are in life, you have gifts and abilities that you can use to bless your family, your friends, and the people who come into your life on a personal level. Before you can do that, you need to take a moment to think about how much power you really have and how blessing others can improve the quality of their lives and yours, as well.
Your Existence is a Blessing to Those Who Love You
The people who care about you are blessed simply because you’re in their lives. Just as you see others as a blessing, they see you the same way. When you give of your time, talents, and self to family and friends, you bless them by helping them feel loved and provided for.
They know that someone who matters to them is in their corner, and they can feel comfortable talking to you and interacting with you on a daily basis. While you can’t always do everything for everyone, you can do many things for a few people, and those ripples of kindness and compassion will spread out into the world, far beyond your physical reach.
Listening to Others is Free and Valuable
One of the very best ways to use your power to bless others is to listen to them. People need to feel like someone hears them and like they’re connected to others around them. As a family or a friend group, keeping that connection growing and getting stronger is valuable, especially during more difficult times. Listening doesn’t cost anything, but it can be a life-changing blessing for others.
You don’t even need to offer advice because a lot of people aren’t concerned about having you solve every problem for them. They just want to know that someone cares what they have to say. You can be that person for your spouse, children, other family members, or a friend or acquaintance that really needs to see a friendly face.
Making a Home is a Joy and a Purpose
Taking a house and making it into a home is a way to find a lot of joy in life and a way to have a purpose. It’s also a way to bless others who live in or visit that home because they know they have a safe, soft place to relax and feel at peace. A comfortable home is a true blessing and a way to get away from the cares of the world for a little while. You can use your power to provide that.
As you look for ways to bless others, you’ll find that a lot of things are in your power. Even small acts can have a big impact and increase the joy others experience in their life.
