Blessing Meadows Ministries
Have you ever had an unexpected knock at the door when you weren’t dressed yet? Your hair all messed up and the house looking like a hurricane went through it overnight?
Maybe it was a brief encounter with a Fed Ex delivery or a salesman with steaks in a dented old freezer on the back of a smoking pickup truck!
Yeah, it happened to me this morning. A young black man with long locks of hair and a casually baggy white T shirt wanted a sale very badly. Unfortunately I couldn’t accommodate him, but gave him hope that after the third I’d have something left to make a purchase with.
More important than that, as he shook hands to leave, I blessed him in Jesus’ name and prayed that he’d make many sales today and be protected as he went.
He was a bit surprised I think, but a few steps into the yard, he turned and said “And I receive that blessing!”
I don’t know if he’ll remember how awful I looked. Disheveled, missing a portion of a front tooth, my hair competing with Phyllis Diller’s, etc. into infinity of what he MIGHT have thought. But I think he’ll remember this stop for the blessing. For someone that counted him worthy of being acknowledged and blessed.
Now as he goes out into the streets, perhaps he won’t be expecting only danger and rejections. Maybe he’ll be wondering where he’ll meet the next person who sees him as a human being instead of an annoyance.You too are a minister of God’s grace and mercy. If you take a chance – see the world through God’s eyes instead of what you’ve been programmed to see. Ignore the hate messages of those around you and be the shining light offering God’s love to the stranger, to the obnoxious, to the children, and to those who believe they are beyond hope. Hope is a lovely thing! It’s free and you can give it over and over without ever giving out! I bless YOU in Jesus’ name!
To God be the praise and glory! In Jesus’ name I send out this teaching and ask that the Word bless and heal all who read or hear it.
God bless you all.
