I saw a great deal on tomatoes this week. So I decided to do my grocery shopping at a supermarket that I do not usually shop at. As I was on my way out the door, I spotted someone that looked familiar to me infront of the Redbox. For the first 2 minutes we did the whole: "Do I know you from somewhere?" "You look familiar to me." "What highschool did you go to?" Then it donned on her. "I met you at another grocery store and you asked me if I knew Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior." I had told her about my endeavor to share the gospel with at least one person a day after I had found out that she was already a believer. I have not been able to share every single day like I would like to, but that meeting encouraged me to keep going.
Lord Jesus, help me to continue to share Your good news with those around me. Remind me that I am a missionary here in my own hometown.
We all tend to have those plans, goals, projects, dreams...
"moments"... that we contemplate "one day" accomplishing. If there is one thing I have learned from accompanying my father through his journey with terminal illness is that life is fleeting. I'm purposing to embrace every moment and delight in the verifiable truth that we could live abundantly if we will only live now. I'm going to work on those unfinished projects. I'm going to share the love of Christ with strangers. I'm going to love like I've never loved before. I'm going to delight in the moment.
