A thought has been weighing heavy on my mind since Easter.
As I drive around town either at work or not I view other people standing in line to check out purchases, waiting to cross the street or in any kind of situations. I try to figure these people out . They appear anxious to move as if they’re late getting to their destination. Downtown I drive past the homeless shelter and wonder how did they get there. There was a mother with two children sitting in church Sunday and I am thinking where is the father \ husband. Today I see two men eating along side the highway and there again is me thinking why there.
Most mornings I ask God to let others see Him in me. Am I kind enough to where they see Him? Do I listen intently in conversations with others and remember to respond with kind words?
Is this the Spirit Jesus told the disciples his father would give them?
In John 4:11 – 13, “Dear friends, since God so loved us, we ought to love one another, God lives in us and his love made us complete. This is how we know that we live in him and he is us: He has given us of his spirit “.
The Spirit is teaching me to see others for more than their outward appearance. He is showing me to look for more, to hear more . Only then will I be able to show that he is in me.
