Kindness Heals – Let's 'Live Like That'

Kindness Heals – Let's 'Live Like That'

I am convinced that anger is just hardened hurt and that kindness heals.

And everything we do is really, at the core, a call for love, to be heard, to be seen...we must see and treat all people as an extension of oneself - we are all the same. Releasing fear and judgment extinguishes hatred. Everyone has a story. I don't believe people are born evil. Look at our babies - they are the essence of God...we can learn so much from them.

My prayer for today - Lord, open the scarred hearts of the angry, the hurting, and fill their wounds with love and peace. May your presence bless us all. You are within each of us; allow your presence to speak into me and into the hearts of all people. You are love - we all must return to only love, our essence. We are born to be like our children - our spirits, our hearts.

It was beautiful hearing our President quote Scripture, and witnessing the unity amongst all faiths at the Vigil on Sunday night. We must remember Scripture is not just to comfort us in times of tragedy, but a "light onto our path" for everyday living...be kind and live by the spirit and we can bear its fruit: love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

So, here's a Sunday Morning Singalong, "Live Like That" by Sidewalk Prophets - get up and dance and sing and let's pledge to 'live like that'...

Here are the words to sing along:

Sometimes I think
What will people say of me
When I'm only just a memory
When I'm home where my soul belongs

Was I love
When no one else would show up
Was I Jesus to the least of those
Was my worship more than just a song

I want to live like that
And give it all I have
So that everything I say and do
Points to You

If love is who I am
Then this is where I'll stand
Recklessly abandoned
Never holding back

I want to live like that
I want to live like that

Am I proof
That You are who you say You are
That grace can really change a heart
Do I live like Your love is true

People pass
And even if they don't know my name
Is there evidence that I've been changed
When they see me, do they see You

I want to live like that
And give it all I have
So that everything I say and do
Points to You

If love is who I am
Then this is where I'll stand
Recklessly abandoned
Never holding back

I want to live like that
I want to live like that

I want to show the world the love You gave for me
I'm longing for the world to know the glory of the King

I want to live like that
And give it all I have
So that everything I say and do
Points to You

If love is who I am
Then this is where I'll stand
Recklessly abandoned
Never holding back

I want to live like that
I want to live like that
