It was only a glimpse. Of a woman behind the shop window. Grace had rushed right by before cognition set in. Nanoseconds perhaps, but now she found herself scrambling to replay the moment, rework the impression into something more acceptable. Reactions however, don’t run through the filter of acceptable and Grace slowed her steps to deal with the impact.
The woman appeared to be just a little older than herself. She was looking straight at Grace. And a smile played around her mouth. Perhaps she’d just had a nice thought. She was not beautiful and autumn had set in making mellow the angles of her face, while her body, from what Grace had glimpsed, had softened a little from the bearing of fruit in seasons gone by. No it was nothing physical that caught the eye. It was a gentleness that radiated from within. Grace recognised in the instant that Jesus stood just beneath her skin.
“Ahh God I want You to shine out of me just like that. Please! Don’t You remember this morning God? How I cried out to You that I was not an effective witness. She is , oh holy God! Without saying a word that woman shares You with her world.”
“That is you Grace. Shine for Me.”
