I was in a good stride walking toward the restroom, sometimes you just gotta go without delay.
Looking ahead, I saw a woman sitting on a bench, I could see her hands shaky. I instantly saw my momma sitting there, even though it wasn’t, with her suffering with Parkinsons, but too it warmed mine heart to imagine seeing my momma, sitting there patiently waiting.
I yelled out “Hey! How are you doing?!”
She looked up at me heading toward her and smiled, answering, “I’m good how are you?!”
I said “We are still living! I’m good too.”
She said “God still has us here for a reason!”
I said “Oh Yes! You got it! Agree! He sure does!”
Passing her by, I turned back saying “God bless you!”
She joyed in the blessing, “Thank you, thank you, you be blessed too!”
Didn’t miss a beat in my step. Didn’t have to stop, didn’t have to think, just in passing by, letting the Holy Spirit move, we can encourage and comfort someone this day!
Be encouraged and be an encouragement, keep in step with the Spirit of the Living God!
The harvest is plentiful, labourers are few, everyone needs encouraged, there’s still much work to do!
1 Thessalonians 5:11-13
Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.
12 And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you;
13 And to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. And be at peace among yourselves.
