Suppose God would text me… What would He say?

Thought provoking question, right? Well, I’ve come up with some possible texts, which i’ll share over the next several days. Then as my birthday arrives i will share my list of 62 things “i have learned,” thus celebrating my 62nd birthday.

i thought i might go online and share the “man-made” guidelines regarding texting just in case God’s not up on the rules.

While texting is a accepted form of communication these days, it still requires  that we maintain a level of basic etiquette. And while this may sound simple  enough, often good manners are ignored. When this happens, texting can turn sensible people into rude and thoughtless people. i don’t think God would have any issues here, after all He did give us 1 Corinthians 13 regarding how to treat each other.

Google suggest a few items to remember.

  • Texting is casual communication to be used in combination with face to face  and other verbal methods.
  • Spell all words, eliminate confusion.
  • Never use all CAPs, it is the equivalent to yelling.
  • Texting doesn’t require a response.
  • There is always a time and place for it. Not anytime and anyplace.
  • Texting while dining with friends or family is rude.
  • Never text to someone while you are driving a car. It is very stupid because  it is very dangerous.

You can come to your own conclusions as to whether any of them would throw God a curve ball or not, personally, i don’t thinks so.

Text messages are limited to 140 characters per text. Any more than that becomes multiple texts. Now that ones probably going to be a problem.

So if God would text me today, here’s what He would say…

Think what a remarkable, unduplicatable, and miraculous thing it is to be you! Of all the people who have come and gone on the earth, since the beginning of time, not ONE of them is like YOU!

No one who has ever lived or is to come has had your combination of abilities, talents, appearance, friends, acquaintances, burdens, sorrows and opportunities.

No one’s hair grows exactly the way yours does. No one’s finger prints are like yours. No one has the same combination of secret inside jokes and family expressions that you know.

The few people who laugh at all the same things you do, don’t sneeze the way you do. No one prays about exactly the same concerns as you do. No one is loved by the same combination of people who love you – NO ONE!

No one before, no one to come. YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY UNIQUE!

Unique: being the only one, being without a like or equal, distinctively characteristic, unequaled, peculiar.

Enjoy that uniqueness. You do not have to pretend in order to seem more like someone else. You weren’t meant to be like someone else. You do not have to lie to conceal the parts of you that are not like what you see in anyone else.

You were meant to be different. Nowhere ever in all of history will the same things be going on in anyone’s mind, soul and spirit as are going on in yours right now.

If you did not exist, there would be a hole in creation, a gap in history, something missing from the plan for humankind.

Treasure your uniqueness. It is a gift given only to you. Enjoy it and share it!

No one can reach out to others in the same way that you can. No one can speak your words. No one can convey your meanings. No one can comfort with your kind of comfort. No one can bring your kind of understanding to another person.

No one can be cheerful and lighthearted and joyous in your way. No one can smile your smile. No one else can bring the whole unique impact of you to another human being.

Share your uniqueness. Let it be free to flow out among your family and friends and people you meet in the rush and clutter of living wherever you are. That gift of yourself was given you to enjoy and share. Give yourself away!

Receive it! Believe it! Let it tickle you! Let it stir you and nudge you and inspire you! YOU ARE UNIQUE!
