CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
How Do We Color Our World?
I recently viewed a quick video by Christian rapper Andy Mineo. He talked about how he reads scripture to help relieve him from doubt about Christ. He also talked about how scripture helps to color his world with what is good, with what is right. And by coloring his world in that way, he then can do more in regards to what is good and right for others, because he is viewing those around him in a way that God wants him to view them.
How do we color our worlds? Sometimes when I wake up on a work day I do not color my world with much beauty. I may start off with a stroke that goes like this: “Crap, another day of work.”
I can chose to color it in a different way. I can chose to paint my morning this way: “God, help me to greet others with strength and love today. Help me to know you are there with me in each and every activity I perform. Let me hear your voice whispering to me and help me to feel your hand upon me.”
Further, I can read from the bible at the start and/or end of my day. I can get together with people who will get me in the correct frame of mind and help me to color my world in the right kind of way. For example, I can go to F3, bust my butt with my brothers, and hear the message within the Circle of Trust that will thrust me forward with a strong spirit to meet the day.
Some of you may remember a song by the group Chicago called “Color My World.” The last line of the song, directed toward a lover, says “Color my world with hope of loving you.” What if we were to change the line, thinking of our Father in Heaven, and say, each day, to God “Color my world with the love you have for me.” Saying that to ourselves may color our day with hope, with strength, with conviction, and with joy.
