A Simple Life, a Childlike Faith

A Simple Life, a Childlike Faith

Sealing Trust

Today, I went  to the local Wal-Mart.  My shirt was dirty and my pants were not a comfortable fit.  But, I reasoned to myself, I never see anyone that I know there.

My assumption was wrong.  As I was struggling to get my cart out the front door, I backed into a young man.  He is person with whom I’ve been sharing the love of Jesus each week for several months.  He smiled and waved at me.

Knowing that he was a friend, I could not get my brain to focus on anything but the faulty cart.  He moved away, sensing that I didn’t recognize him.  I knew that I knew him from somewhere but where?  Suddenly, I remembered.

I called him back.  He was genuinely pleased that I knew who he was and he hugged me.  We laughed at my bad memory and my crippled cart.  Then he went into the store and I headed for my car. I knew that God had given me a miracle encounter.  A chance meeting at the store and my recognition of him away from his work had sealed our friendship.

Trusting the Lord always insures our success.  Even though, others may not see or know what God is doing for us.  By recognizing and acknowledging God’s hand in our lives, God has the ability to turn even chance encounter into a blessing.
