All In A Day’s Work
Come experience a typical day of God at work in the Thrift Mart
So this young man comes into the store this afternoon and he tells me he wants to be a minister. He has been calling me for three days but just had not connected with me so today he walked all the way to the church to find me. We talked a little while I worked so I could kinda see where he was coming from? I asked him who he thought Jesus was? He answered with the following; “Well, Jesus is my best friend! I talk to Him all the time and He shows me things! He has a great sense of humor and I want to be like Him!” I stopped and turned to him and there was just a sweet smile upon his glowing face. I looked down and his shoes were zip tied together because they had no laces. The shoes were worn out! He came in with a couple of plastic bags holding all of his possessions….Wal Mart size bags! I was so moved by the scene I was compelled to minister to his needs. He left with some Reebok’s that matched perfectly his ankle high black socks. They were the only size 11’s on the shelf! (God’s amazing providence!) We put it all in a back pack and we prayed, gave him a Bible and a minister’s handbook. Off he went to cast out devils, heal the sick, and raise the dead.
I can’t help but wonder who he is or what his story is? All I know is he epitomized Matthew 6:33 putting God and His plan for his life first and all the things he needed were added unto him. The gospel is so simple and Heaven is so faithful, when did it become so overwhelmingly difficult too follow Christ? A simple reminder to me that the Jesus I serve is amazing and He has a great sense of humor! Wow, what a day…….and today the teacher became the student!!!
