SHOCKING

As I travel through life, doing my thing in my little corner of the universe, I am constantly brought to my knees with the knowledge that I really don't know nearly as much as I thought I did. I am continuously amazed at the simple things that remind me that God really does work in mysterious ways, and that He isn't just spending all His time on me!! Shocking! It's so easy to be narrow minded and selfish, for me anyway. I have to be reminded, very often, to take my focus off of myself and my issues and look around at the rest of the world. Stick my head out of my car, my house, my job, and see the things going on 'out there'.

I have mentioned before that I deal on a daily basis with a number of trying individuals. My faith is challenged quite regularly. Yet it is my faith that enables me to endure things. If something gets to me too much, I know that all I have to do is whisper a prayer and everything is suddenly endurable again.

One of these individuals shocked me today. For the good. I've never really been sure of his religious standing. I'm still not sure. I've thought that he might be a seeker though. Today he brought a Christian CD to work. It was recorded by a previous member of the group Jefferson Airplane. It's kind of a bluegrassy, folksy collection, but it's definitely a Christian recording. I never thought I would see the day that this guy would play something like that in the store. It just goes to show me that Jesus deals with each of us where we are. That even those of us who aren't forthcoming with our personal info may be in right standing after all. I'm not sure that I'm saying this right, but I hope you get my meaning.

I was pleased. Happy. Humbled too. I have to catch myself, make sure I'm not guilty of making snap judgements of anyone. I realize that the fact that he likes this CD doesn't mean anything, or it may mean everything. I'm trying to persuade him to play the local contemporary Christian radio station too. I don't know if he will or not, and it doesn't really matter. Maybe it's just a baby step in the right direction. We all have to start somewhere.

Keep praying for those whom God puts in your life. Even if you feel it's a futile effort. You just never know what might happen.

God bless you.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

I did not mean to bold font that last sentence. I intended to put in a line break, but I used the wrong html code. Sorry.
Keep on writing, and may God bless.
Thomas
