Need an outlet for confusion? Frustration? Anger?
Smile. Even if you’re the first one.
Hand out some compliments. Even if you aren’t receiving them.
Give a pat on the back. Even if your own remains untouched.
Be a light. A bright, shining, glorious light!
I read recently that, “Struggling souls catch light from other souls who are fully lit and willing to show it. If you would help to calm the tumult, this is one of the strongest things you can do.”
We are the “branches.”
5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. 6 If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. 7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 8 This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.”
