US, WE, OURS…
These words build unity, oneness. These words are used to create a sense belonging, to emphasize that you have a role in this union. In my years of experience thus far, I have lost faith in those words…to a degree. It has been ‘us, we, ours,’ when things are well, however, when disappointments arise, the atmosphere of unity, respect, and commitment to one another is shaken. Abandonment, isolation, anger seems to manifest, and all of the ‘us, we, and ours,’ have turned out (for me) to be me, me, me & Jesus…to console my mind, and spirit from the shock of being cut off.
Words to the wise, ‘us, we, ours,’ are pure words with powerful meanings. These words again, emphasize unity, love, bond, connection, commitment, loyalty. It is the passion of every leader for every person connected to have this heart, and vocabulary of ‘us, we, ours’ for the vision, the organization & for one another. ‘Us, we, ours,’ is still alive today. Don’t let bad experiences of rejection make you no longer believe in the power love, connection, and unity.
Know the hearts of your leaders, of the groups, organizations, and the members you have connected your time, and devotion too. Your spirit will know when it is truly ‘us, we, and ours.’ Your own vocabulary will reflect your belief of belonging, and faith in the role you play to manifest the vision you are a part of. Don’t let rejection control your life! Choose today to believe in those words again (us, we, and ours).
Love unifies. This is how you will know when it is truly ‘us, we, and ours,’ it will be tested in the bad times, in the disappointments, in the failed expectations. If your relationship to the group, organization has survived all of the tests of shaky times, and you are still there loving your leaders, and the members, doing, and (knowing) your role to help the vision…then you have found LOVE. You are truly connected. Your vocabulary should resound with ‘us, we, and ours!’ Give God praise, for experiencing divine unity, and purpose. Be mindful to embrace others HE sends your way. Introduce the broken, the rejected, to ‘us, we, ours,’ which is the language of the LOVE!
