Getting Real About Life, about Love, and about God

What type are you?

I am blessed with a wife and kids that are for the most part spiritual energy building people. It seems that this morning I have encountered a lot of people that have just really lifted me spiritual.

Have you ever noticed that there are some people that when you are around them they lift your spirits? They bring laughter and joy. Your relationship is energizing. How about the opposite? Have you noticed that there are some people that are just draining to your spirit? They are negative. They drag you down. You get done spending time with them and your angry or depressed.

It is good for us to have people that fill us up because there are those that can drain us. If we don't spend time around the filling folks then I think we can become so drained that we become the type of people that drain others spiritual tanks.

How is your tank today? Do you need to fill someone up or do you need to be filled. Who are the people that you are spending time with? Do they fill your spirit or are they draining you? What type of person are you?

The scriptures talk about how we need to spur one another on toward love and good deeds. We need to inspire one another. Lift one another up. Build each other up.

Be a spiritually uplifting person today. Say kind words. Encourage. Be the type of person that you want to spend your time with. Make a date to spend some time with someone who is feeling low. Send a note. Make the phone call. Fill peoples spiritual tanks with the overflow from your tank.

If your feeling low today, guard yourself against negative people. Find a tank filler to hang out with and draw off the overflow of their spirit. Be filled today by (and fill) the company that you keep.

Love today.

In Christ love and mine,
Doug
