As I was walking back to the staff room a gentleman was standing at the post office speaking boldly lovingly about His Lord and Saviour with such passion I could hear him half way down the isle. When I approached the back I could see people rolling their eyes in line behind him. The young lady at the counter was smiling politely and serving him and unbeknownst to the rest of the line he was serving God. I however knew and pride filled my heart knowing he was my brother in Christ and a fine member of the church I attended. I was connected to this man although we don't know each other on a personal level but a fellowship level.
This hit me right in my heart so hard I could hardly breathe.
We have the same Father and this was my brother standing there unashamed of our Dad.I immediately started praising our Father for giving me such a wonderful brother.
One lady looked,rolled her eyes and mouthed Jesus freak.
So what did I do. I said Hello loudly,and then said to the lady That's my brother in Christ Praise God.
"Hello Kiddo what a great day"
But the story doesn't end there. Later on in the day I went back to the staff room punch out for the day and the young lady that was at the counter said Do you know that man,he is such a wonderful man and he sure loves God and isn't afraid to talk about him.There was another young lady sitting there and she said what did the man look like did he look like this?
Yep you described him right and she began to tear up and said when he came to the front cash he stopped for a moment then looked and said God wanted me to tell you that you are a blessing and you are beautiful.
My heart was so filled with love for God as the young lady said I was having such a ick day and felt really down and worthless,this man made my day. Do you really think God told him to say that?
You bet sweetheart! and He will use even a stranger to let you know how much He loves you.
She smiled and said I guess I have forgotten I think I should start thanking Him and praying to Him again.
Just when you think your day is just an average uneventful day God pops into Shoppers Drug Mart and says Hey just wanted to let you know I am here and I Love You.
Thankyou Father for remembering all of us even when we sometimes forget about you but most importantly thankyou for teaching us what true obedience is through our brothers and sisters in Christ.

Every church has Candles and Stars.
Candles can be our ushers,maintenance people,kitchen help. They are there in the background,unassumingly glowing gently as they serve the Lord
Stars can be our Pastors,our Elders, they are in the forefront doing what they do best shine the light of God upon us as they too serve.
We have all heard the saying Children should be seen not heard.
What an injustice this is to them.
Children have plenty to say and are so filled with wisdom.
The problem sometimes is that children do not articulate as well as we would like them to.
We become frustrated and try to hurry them along in their thoughts and it is then we miss what they are really trying to say,we miss the profound wisdom that is within them.
At the other end of the spectrum children tend to think adults know all.
Yes we may be wiser sometimes due to experience but don't discount their experiences.
Some things we have been through and can understand but now aday there are things we can only try and relate to.
The world has changed since we were young and I pray that more will come to Christ and see that there is goodness in this world.
Tonight was an amazing night at Junior High and Youth.
I have helped lead for almost 2 years now and I have heard alot out of the mouths of these beautiful babes but most importantly I have been taught many things from the children of our church.
Tonight I was blessed to hear not only with my ears but with my heart Mackenzie Martins testimony of her personal moment with God.
She taught us all about LOVE
The breaking down of walls we may have that prevent us from loving fully.
The fact that God can love us no matter what so why can't we love each other the same way.
Just when you think you have it down pat a child speaks in a crowd and the doors of enlightenment and hope open up within you.
Praise God for Mackenzies courage,boldness and obedience for not only trusting Gods love in her and of her but to show us how much she loves us with a trusting heart.
Bless you Mackenzie and thank you for speaking a message to not only my heart but to all that God placed in your path tonight.
We all had the privelage of witnessing a beautiful star tonight and she shone so brightly many wept as the Holy Spirit filled us with words of love from this child.
Our children are the Stars of this world listen to what they have to say.
I promise you,you will be filled with wisdom age cannot give
God can through our most treasured gift.
Bless you Mackenzie and thank you for a night I will cherish in my heart always.
Love you lots
