I was at a drive thru the other day and the man in the box was very short with me. He sounded as if he was being forced at gun point to work behind that mike. To be honest, he acted no different at the window.
After being as polite as I could and waiting for my turn to speak so that I could tell him that Jesus Loves him (that really cheers me up, I thought it might work for him) he abruptly said “pull up to the stop line and I will bring it out” and shut the those little glass windows really fast.
Well after about ten minutes or so, he brought out our food and tried to drop the bag and run. I said: “Hey man, Jesus loves you”. Well, he gave me a not so nice look and really took off without a word.
I felt worried afterwards that I would face rejection again if I tried to bring up Jesus to someone else. I wish I had verbal skills!
I post these messages and I have a secret. I am worried. I have never just came up and spoken to someone before. My insecurities tell me that someday someone that I don’t know will tell me: “Hey dork, stop spamming me”.
Now I know that I am with the best bunch of people and that you probably would not do that but still; I feel the insecurities of rejection. More than likely because of the rejection I have given. I think maybe all of us feel it at times.
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
This passage rings sweet melodies of calmness and love to me. God promises to guard our hearts AND our minds if we submit to Christ!
Now I won’t lie, I am still worried about what people will say but when that one single person tells me “Thank you, I needed that” WHOOO!!! The Lord Jesus my savior has just worked through me! The chase is on now! Try and stop me if you may Satan! God almighty promised me a victory.
I want ya’ll to know that I love you. If you run into someone and have the opportunity to SHARE our Lord and savior; try it! God promises to guard our hearts and minds. Sure, someone may reject you but just think; the seed has been planted and God promises to not let that seed go unattended. Someone will come to water it. A few minutes of embarrassment will pass but salvation is eternal.
About the author
I hurt, I cry, I love and I live. I am just a man with no degrees or labels. I offer something that can never be taken or forced, never stolen or cheated and I give freely the gift given to me; purchased at the highest cost. The most important and sacred gift of all -Love! Dig deeper, walk with me and discover the source of this amazing gift. This site is designed to inspire Christians to reach for a new level in becoming kingdom minded and less worldly. While it may seem that I assume everyone is a Christian; that could not be further from the truth. I understand that the Christian movement has not grown in ages in America. My personal mission is to share Jesus Christ by giving the living testimony of my life and trust in the power of the Holy Spirit to inspire and convict. Put simply, I am powerless and lowly but the Spirit within me is only limited by how much I get in the way. I am learning to “walk”. All too often people are shown the gospel of Christ and then left to figure the rest out on their own so to speak. It is my prayer that the journey or “The Walk” will not be alone, that we will become what we were designed to be: -We are the Church!
