Welcome to another week for the Hive Open Mic and we are in week #115.
I will be presenting a lovely song for the week's theme “Doing the work” and I chose a song by Brian and Jenn Johnson which is titled “YOU ARE THE ONE”.

Doing the work which is the theme for the week is more or less like giving back to humanity what has been given to you. There is a need to extend your help to others once you have been helped because that is what makes up “love for humanity”.
Someone loves you, so why not love another back? You have been saved and when you are in the position to save another, remember if you weren't helped to the top, you wouldn't have been where you are.
According to the song by Johnson, this shows how God has loved us and we are to love our neighbours just as God has loved us. We are to continue doing the work and letting it reach everyone.
Help me to love with open arms as you do......
The truth is that, as God has shown His love towards us, it is a necessity for us to show love to mankind and let the work of love keep growing among ourselves.
A man of God celebrated his birthday on the 6th of June, this year and all through his life, he has been preaching the gospel to the world and on his birthday, he was celebrated and mimicked just exactly as he has been doing.
For a man like that, he is sure of leaving behind a good legacy which others would continue doing the work of God through him forever and that would keep extending throughout the world. I felt loved in such a way and I am sure the man of God would be happy.
Let's keep doing the good works and as God has loved us, He expects us to keep loving everyone irrespective of who they are, as this is a sign of doing the work of God.
With Kindness, and compassion for the One
The One for whom You loved, and gave Your Son
For humanity; increase my love
A love that erases all the lines, and sees the truth
Oh that when they look in my eyes, they would see You
Even with just a smile; they would feel the Father's love
