Be All you can be for the Lord

I just wanted to share what happened to me last week. I had the opportunity to meet a woman who was looking for a caregiver. This woman was referred by my present boss ( a mother with a 14 month old son).

We talked about her son for several minutes. All of a sudden, out of the blue, she asked me “what parish” I attended. Last minute, that day I had decided to wear a beautiful faux crystal cross necklace. I said I didn’t really go to a parish. I said I attended a church that was originally Baptist and heading towards Non-Denominational. I shared more about my conversions from one religion to another, till my husband and I finally decided to attend only non-denominational churches. She shared about her former church down by the shore. She told me she was attending a Methodist church. She had trouble finding a non-denominational church. I shared some about my church. She asked where it was, and said she may like to visit.

Well, the conversation after that, focused mostly on God. When she was getting in her van, she shared she really needed the Lord in her life. Before she left, she told me she was glad she met me, and the meeting was very inspiring and encouraging.

I felt so wonderful after this meeting. When I went into the mall, I was looking in Marshalls for an anniversary gift for my husband. We were married twenty years on September 22nd. I saw a painting and the words said It’s all good. The first time I looked at the painting, I saw these words:

It’s all God. Yes, it truly is all about God. I want to have more opportunities or as our pastor’s wife calls them “divine interventions” with people like this woman.

When I was in the eye glass store because my husband needed his glasses fixed, I saw the sign “Be a Life Changer”. The sign was for people to donate their glasses. I thought of this, God wants to use me and you to share our faith, encourage people who are hurting and lost- touch a life.

Heavenly Father, make us bold and tenacious to share our faith and our testimony. Give us opportunities to use our gifts and talents for Your Glory. Thank you Father for your love.

Matthew 5:14-16
You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.

Until next time, enjoy the journey.
