I pray as you read this you are blessed and filled with overwhelming hope! Jesus is King!!!!
A quick story: This morning I was sitting in my new backyard enjoying the birds and the sun. While sipping my coffee and with my Bible open on my lap, my husband emerged and sat next to me. We chatted about the millions of tasks that we are still facing as we are slowly moving in.
After that discussion, I looked down into my Bible. And I said, "Do you want me to read to you from the Word of God?"
That didn't deter me. I simply began to read a passage, "Truly I tell you, anyone who gives you a cup of water in my name because you belong to the Messiah will certainly not lose their reward."
Mike then says to me, "That what you do all the time when you give a bottle of water to everyone who comes here to do any repair work on our house."
I've been doing this for years.
I looked up, "Wow, I didn't even realize that I was doing this." I smiled BIG. It's fun to discover that God lives in you so much that you live out His will even unknowingly.
BUT, this is the BEST PART OF THE STORY: Later in the day electrician, Gregg, arrived to repair our A/C unit. We blew a fuse, darn it!
I'm in my office as Mike and Greg are chatting. Then suddenly I hear Mike say, "Can I get you a bottle of water?"
My friends, THEY ARE ALWAYS LISTENING. I took one brave moment to read the word to my husband, even when he wasn't interested.
He was listening.
They are watching and listening. No pressure. Just live an authentic love with Jesus. THAT is all.
I adore you. Lynn
