When I bless you I do so in the name of our God who is the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We call this the Holy Trinity. Our God is a family, a relationship. In other words I bless you into a family. A blessing is a wish, a desire, flowing from the heart for you to be happy and the way to happiness is to be included inside of a family, a relationship. God isn’t alone and God is pure happiness and joy and so what makes you think that being alone will make you happy?
You can’t be happy alone. If you think you can be happy by yourself in this life you are lying to yourself. Even God didn’t want to be by Himself. We all have a desire to be included and to be wanted and to be cherished and to be desired and this only comes from having a family, a community, a relationship. You want to be happy? Get into a family. Get inside of a community. Get into a relationship.
You need other people because it’s “not good for man to be alone” says the Bible. Not good. The opposite of this is good and so look for a partner if you don’t have one. Look for a community choir or a dance group or a card playing group. Venture out. You risk nothing, you gain nothing. Start a profile online to find a partner.
Living the blessed life is living a family life and church is a family, a community, and so I bless you with this family today and everyday in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen. Father Adam Kotas
