Oh how I love meeting people and experiencing God in new ways. I was checking out of a hotel (who will remain nameless, not because it was not fantastic but because this post is not about them) and the front desk staff was friendly, conversational and inspiring. My husband had on a shirt from the son of my heart that reads God First and Family Second, that started the conversation about waking up and thanking our Heavenly Father for big and small items.
We moved on to one of the young women talking about discovering her gift. If you know anything about me that conversation got me going. I was so excited to hear her talking about discovering her love of the Word and building her relationship with God. She wants to understand her role in Christ and all the things that comes with it. It was a refreshing conversation , especially so because I recently saw several young people on one of those apps talking about how stupid people are to serve God. I was broken-hearted to hear those words but this young lady showed me that God is not dismayed and there is still light in the world.
I was reminded of a few things:
“Gifts can open many doors and help you meet important people.”
Proverbs 18:16 ERV
“Be happy because of the hope you have. Be patient when you have troubles. Pray all the time.”
Romans 12:12 ERV
“You will teach me the right way to live. Just being with you will bring complete happiness. Being at your right side will make me happy forever.”
Psalms 16:11 ERV
I am always better after meeting the people of God, the anointing can be seen in and around them and it refreshes my soul. I pray this for you.
“I pray that the God who gives hope will fill you with much joy and peace as you trust in him. Then you will have more and more hope, and it will flow out of you by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
Romans 15:13 ERV
