Good morning , afternoon, and evening everyone!
You know how when you want to share the good news with everyone you meet in life about the LORD? Well I will say you do have to test the spirits 1st before you do so. But most often with a smile and being consistently pleasant people will and do listen. When my husband and I are going about our days we do this. Try to talk to people about the LORD.
We do have some good conversations every now and then, some people are stunned and do not know what to say when we begin to praise GOD for the things HE has done, or ask politely “how is your relationship with the LORD?”. You can tell the level of faith they will have , and if they want to talk they will. Up to them.
You will never know how you affect other people until you are leaving to move to a new location or what ever. And you could have had just small little talks, nothing to long. Smiling over things together you talked about. And then leaving them and saying “have a blessed day”. Wanting them to be safe at all times. Maybe have them understand what “blessed” means too.
For me when my office is being relocated, I was saying good bye to all of the people I knew outside of my department and office. I did not realize how many people I had said good morning to, or shared pleasant conversations with. All of them said something nice to me I didn’t expect, some took the time to come and say good bye because they knew I was leaving and did not know when we could catch up with each other.
I am about to cry right now, my eyes are watering up. Because they are all pleasant and good people too. Just when you think nothing of being kind and do NOT expect anything in return, GOD gives you this blessing! Awesome encouragement from GOD! Just awesome!
I will say that there are times when you may think that when you mention the LORD and the blessings HE has given you….you are very wrong. People do listen. When I was buying something in a store. And elderly woman was the cashier at the register. And we were having a conversation about the weather. Mentioning the LORD perked her right up.
I learned that some people may not have the opportunity to talk to anyone about the LORD and they want to, need it like a breath of fresh air. This is where and why people of faith need to stay together. There are people that need the encouragement from “the tribe of JESUS”
(T.T.O.J). Let them know and bond with them by encouraging them, and letting them know they are not alone. Even in the walks through the lion dens of the secular world.
They have GOD!
They have JESUS!
They have faith!
They have fellowship with true believers in CHRIST! You will feel the bond that you do that goes beyond a bloodline family. This bond is true, and you can tell it when you meet a person. You will know if they are your sister or brother by what they say and what they don’t say.
I learn things every day that the LORD shows me. And what I have learned from leaving the old office and going to the new location was that people do listen. And will show you respect when they can see your light shine.
GOD is good!
May you all have a blessed day, and share this blog post with others so they can read the scripture and get a blessing as well. Pass it forward!
