Are you a Generous Mind?

I pray for those who have bravely taken up the challenge to share what you have put on their hearts.
I pray that their families would understand the need for quiet times to work.
I pray that they would remember those moments of inspiration when they are caught up in the dry times.
I pray that they would have courage to write what your Spirit puts on their hearts; even when it means hardship.
I pray that You would give them humor, wit, wisdom and creativity as they write.
Most of all help them to see that each word they write is a chance to give You glory for the gift you have given them.

Idea 10 was stated this way: "Idea 10: Watch the inauguration and pick out something that needs talked about. Send the quote to some friends and ask for their thoughts."
So here goes: "We will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist."
As I have been processing this thought that Obama shared, I have a few observations. So many times our posture defines our relationships and our interactions. We come into a situation with a frown and arms crossed . . . or conversely we come into a situation with a smile and an embrace. The way that we posture ourselves will impact how people perceive us and will open or close opportunities to us.
Our external posture is simply a reflection of our mental, psychological and spiritual posture. Are we filled with grace, peace, hope and love or the opposites. Ever day I meet people who decide between the extended hand or the clenched fist.
I want my life to be an extended hand . . . what do you want for your life?
