So last Saturday ( 6th ) my friend Mary said our friend, Claire, our youth Pastor's wife, Leah and her wanted to invite me to come and "chalk up the town for Jesus" with them. Her and Claire had done it earlier that day and said they wanted to get me to do it with them. . . I was excited! I thought it was a great idea.
Well it turned out to be a lot more then just us four! In all there was about ten girls writing messages all over the sidewalks of our town.
We wrote things like " Jesus's love covers you" and "Romans 8:1".
About half way through the day we were all together talking on the side of the road. We were talking about how we have to show love and not just say love. . How we show love because we have been loved!
About that time a lady walked up. She asked if we were the ones who wrote on the sidewalks last week and we told her yes. . That was Mary and Claire! She told us she walked out of her store last week and saw " Romans 8:1 For there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ" written on the sidewalk. She started to tear up. She told us she had thought about it all week and tried to find us to tell us how it had touched her. WoW!
Another time ( I didn't see this. They told me) a guy drove up to a green light and STOPPED to ask if they were the ones who wrote on the sidewalks last week. They told him "yes" . He told them " I love God a lot but sometimes I wonder if He loves me. When I looked down and saw it written on the sidewalk. . It touched me. Thank you." WoW again!!
God is FAITHFUL!
This is what I had been praying for! This is what God had in mind. This is how I was to show His LOVE!!
I am not trying to say " I am awesome and show God's love everyday". No. . I fail a lot! What I am trying to say is even little acts of love can make a huge difference for Christ! We just have to be open to what God has for us!
This is what it is all about. . . Showing God's love for HIS glory, even in the little ways!
All for Him,
