Good evening everyone! Well…it’s that time of the day, to put the feet up and enjoy a quiet moment with you and God. I am so glad you came to join me tonight, at the Heart to Heart Blog and I really hope that you had a nice day!
Today was a little different kind of day for me. Actually, my day started out, by going to the grocery store. I’ll tell you, I think I notice more and even learn more, when I get out of the house and am around other people. It seems like my eye is always drawn to the facial expressions, of those who pass me by in the grocery store.
You know…it’s so easy to judge people and think that they are just sometimes mean and crude; but maybe behind those disgruntled faces, are people who may be hurting deeply. I’ll tell you, I don’t know how people make it in this life without Christ because I need Him every day…to lean on and be my strength!
After finishing the shopping and paying for the food, I called the taxi to come and pick us up…as my husband and I are unable to drive…and you know what…it seemed to be another moment, to listen to someone, who had went thru a very trying morning. Actually, I didn’t mind and just maybe, he needed someone to care; so I sat there in the car and listened, as the man told my husband and me about his day.
You know…I truly believe that God puts us in places…just at the right time, for a specific reason in time. We don’t always have to be someone special to serve God. In fact, sometimes all it takes; is a reassuring smile.
After returning home, I was resting for a while, on my daybed in the office and I began to think about this taxi driver and how difficult it can be at times…just to support his family, especially in a place that is much smaller than Chicago or New York City. I think sometimes, we don’t always realize what other people are going thru and how these moments of struggle can be the best opportunity, to share Christ’s love with them.
Well…not much was accomplished today…but one thing I can say; is that I did have a refresher course, on how to slow down and truly take in the moments; that God longed for me to experience in this day. Sometimes I think it’s better to take a break, from the busy moments of life and just soak in the moments, when God is trying to refresh us and renew us in His loving Spirit.
What a different kind of day it was…but as I sit here, I see that it was the day that God had planned just for me. Maybe it’s time for all of us to let go of ourselves and look beyond our problems, to truly care for someone, who may be in need. Maybe if we could just look beyond the disgruntled faces and see a heart that is crying out in need; then maybe we would find it easier, to share the love of God with them, rather than judging them. You know…this is the only way people are going to find Jesus.
Well…time for me to go…but I have to say…I really enjoyed our visit tonight and God has truly given me an insight, on how He works in different ways within our lives. I don’t know about you; but tomorrow, I will be getting up and looking for the day that God longs for me to live, rather than trying to conform my ways into His plan for the day.
Well…take care and I hope you will come back and join me again tomorrow night, as I share my day with you, along with the goodness of a great…loving and powerful God…heart to heart!
Blessings on your night!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
