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.
