Don’t overlook the small things and don’t underestimate their importance!
I was waiting in line at the grocery store. The woman ahead of me was finished but was talking to the young girl checking her out. It was obvious to me that in spite of the difference in ages, they had a connection.
I couldn’t help but overhear how the woman was going for more of her chemo treatment in a few days. The cashier was asking her questions determining that she was being well taken care of.
Finally, the woman noticed I was waiting my turn and apologized for making me wait. I told her I was in no hurry….and then when I received a little nudge from the Lord…I asked if I could pray for her.
Her whole face lit up as she responded with a strong YES! I came closer, gently laid my hand on her shoulder and began to pray. I noticed the cashier with her head bowed as she joined us.
After I finished, the young cashier said, “Whew!! I feel heat!!
Oh Lord!! Thank you for opening the door to be able to pray for my Sister’s complete healing! Thank You for being able to speak blessing and love to the young cashier! Oh Lord!! Thank You for blessing ME!! You are an AWESOME GOD!!!
We were on our way home from spending precious time with family in Miami. First we stopped at Cracker Barrel. Nope-30 minute wait. We left and went to Outback in Daytona Beach.
The first table was in the bar area and it was too cold. We moved to a booth by a window in the main area.
Our waitress was a young woman who blessed us tremendously! Above and beyond service!! I praised her for her excellent service. ❤️. As she brought our box to go and our check, I felt the Lord’s nudge to speak a blessing over her.
I gently touched her arm, looked in her eyes and began speaking, “May this New Year…” She interrupted me by throwing her head back and laughing joyfully!
I said, “I want to speak a blessing over you.” She immediately closed her eyes and bowed low over our table.
I gently touched her forehead and said, “May this New Year be above and beyond what you can think and dream of! In Jesus’ Name, AMEN!”
She raised her head and exclaimed, “I needed that!!” I said, “God is so good!”
Oh my, God is indeed good! Circumstances changed to make sure I was at her table to speak God’s blessing and love over her. I am completely overwhelmed by the goodness of God!!!
There is much for us to be thankful for! What are some of the “little things” that you are enjoying?
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.” Isaiah 43:2 NIV
No matter what is happening in your life, never forget that the Lord is walking with you through it.
Lord, help me to look at YOU and not on what is going on around me!
“…Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me.” Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”” Matthew 14:29-31 ESV
May we KEEP OUR EYES UPON JESUS!
No matter what is happening in our lives, we can take JOY in our salvation! We can walk in the assurance that God is with us in and through it all! Hallelujah!!
