When I wake up feeling blah, I reach for inspiring words. Nourish, refresh, and encourage your soul with these words from guest blogger Rev. Dr. Bob Luckin, “If Not For You…”

My Dear Community,

What happens when you wake up feeling “blah”? I reach for a cup of strong, hot, fresh coffee and several inspirational books.

The message I read for June 25, 2019, caused my heart to relax into the wisdom of the words posted below.

Today’s guest blogger is Rev. Dr. Bob Luckin, the co-director of the Center for Spiritual Living Palm Beaches. He is a personal growth coach and published author.

We ‘met’ through his daily guides published in the June edition of Science of Mind magazine.

May your heart, mind, body, and spirit be nourished by them as well. Remember, you were born worthy and you are enough!!

Appreciation is a wonderful thing: It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.  – Voltaire

I know that the Divine Spirit within me responds to the same Spirit in others…My whole thought and feeling is one of praise, of thanksgiving and of blessing.  –  Ernest Holmes


If not for you, there would be a place of emptiness in the heart of God.

If not for you, all the good you have done would still need doing.

If not for you, the spark of your ideas would not have ignited a fire in Others.

If not for you, the key role you have played in life’s drama would remain unfilled.

If not for you, at least one person would not have awakened to their dreams.

If not for you, your triumphs could not be examples to inspire others.

If not for you, someone who needed love would not have received it.

If not for you, a life would have been shortened, or never have existed.

If not for you, the song of life would have missed a beat.   

If not for you, your gifts would remain ungiven.

If not for you, another might have suffered in your place.

If not for you, someone would have no path to follow.

If not for you, there would be one less smile, one less laugh and one less hug.

If not for you, there would be on less ember of love to warm the soul.

If not for you, an animal might be homeless and a garden left unplanted.

If not for you, something would be missing.

You have always made a difference. Who you are is important every day.

You are the face, the heart, and the soul of God.

That is the Truth of each of You who open these weekly messages, forward them to others and know that “We are not broken. We are broken open.”

 I hope this speaks to your heart as much as it did mine. Let me know by sending a reply.


Love all around, above, below, to the left and to the right, before you and behind you,
