Words to SPARK your Heart-Song from our co-founder Sherry Douglas.

Hi, everyone! I’m Sherry Douglas with Heart-Song. Here’s the question I left you with last week: By looking at your new normal, today, and your old normal, yesterday, what does your better normal look like tomorrow?
As I thought about what I hope my better normal looks like, I recalled some of the people who have believed in me, hoped with me, and served beside me to only aid in MY success. On May 14th, Heart-Song posted this quote by Craig Harper:
“Every now and then, a person with no agenda, no ulterior motive and no self-interest, will take pleasure in helping you to succeed, grow and live your purpose. This person will operate in love, will seek no praise and will want nothing in return. This person is a gift.”
A big thank you to those who are now and have been gifts to me! I encourage you to take time to identify those in YOUR life who are gifts, those who have had no agenda, but taken pleasure in helping YOU grow and succeed.
On the flip side, as you read the above quote in the comments below, invest some brain power and heart in figuring out how and to whom YOU can be a gift. When we choose to be a gift to others, we benefit as much as them. Our better normal tomorrow can have more blessings than we can imagine.
Philippians 2:3-4 says, “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of others.” With humility, love, and without self-interest, let’s walk alongside others, helping them to succeed, grow, and live their purpose. Let’s BE THE GIFT!
This is the word of the Lord. See you next week.
