Random Acts of Love

Today I was full of tears of joy just thanking God for His goodness in my life. I don't take credit for the great love that He's constantly pouring out over my life. I think we all know some really loving and good people who've simply had a hard life and unfortunate situations happened to them. It's not because I'm a 'good' person that God chose to shower me with His blessings, instead it's because he's a good God. So I remain tremendously humbled and constantly amazed by His unfailing love.

I decided to stop by Wendy's because they have that new grilled chicken, whole wheat flatbread option, yah- it's pretty good, but I digress, lol. So anywho, I decided to give it a try and I looked at the car behind me and I was just overflowing with compassion for the lady in the vehicle behind me. She looked so frustrated. My friends & family know how emotional I get when I see something that touches my heart and moves me with compassion. I just thought to myself, "what can I do apart from praying for this lady?" I just knew hopping out of my car to speak to her was not fit for this moment- I would look like a MAJOR creep, but many times I really don't care about that in the end.

I decided to pay for her meal. The lady at the cash register thought I was a freak. But I just told her that I wanted to be a blessing to the lady behind me. I left her a note saying, "Jesus Loves You, Smile =)" I wasn't trying to proselytize convert her or anything. Just wanted to let her know that Jesus loves her. I don't know how she may have taken it, heck she probably flinged the little note out the window.  I didn't do it to receive a positive reaction in return. I think we live in a hurting world and 'hurt'
people hurt others. Once I recognized that Jesus loved me, there was nothing else that could stop me from enjoying life.

Thanks so much for reading. I know it's pretty long.

Have a lovely weekend and know that God loves you with an unfailing love. Pin It Now!
