THE LOVE OF GOD AWAITS US
Let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.-
1 John 3:18
1 John 3:18
For me and several of my close friends we concurred that this day it was evident that we witnessed an outpouring of God's love. It really was another opportunity to celebrate GOD’S goodness, live out my dreams and meet more book lovers searching out the isles for a their book(s) of choice, possibly a sports magazine, a gift book, an inspirational book, a favorite author or just hoping to stumble upon a new literary discovery. And God would have it that yours truly would be seated near the front door this Saturday afternoon, with a smile of course- urging the prospective customer to come and see what I believed could encourage them on their life’s journey!! I prayed that my devotional would be their great find pf the day! It’s a I can’t contain this new kind of energy/joy that causes me to stand, walk around the tables, hug the customers, laugh out loud, really loud and in celebration announce in a rather loud tone of voice “Yes, I am the author, let me share with you how my book was birthed and the intent behind the title: The Blessedness of Believing A Devotional Journey of Life’s Lessons and God’s Promises.” Surprisingly people indulge me. :-)
Here are some of the customer, well wishers and store Managers that added the devotional to their personal libraries. They have no idea how honored I feel by their support
It makes my heart leap when friends enter the front doors, moments after I arrive at the bookstore to celebrate God's faithfulness through the publication of my devotional and then they proceed to share with others about the life changing messages that are contained in the devotionals.
God has done it again shown His love and consideration for all of us. But also, I do believe that if you look closely it’s evident that I am a good example of how He’ll stretch us and allow us to survive personal storms and live to tell about it and marvel at the outcome. Like the sweet little baby coming through the door happily waving, smiling and running towards me caused me to giggle with sheer joy. She didn’t know me, but I sure was delighted with her enthusiasm to see me. I knew it was a divine confirmation and a beautiful gift from God to be assured that even in the most unlikely places of our lives- the love of God nurtures us, overtakes us, surprises us and blesses us as we embrace the newness of life.
Thank you Lord, for you love awaits us! Have a great day my friends.
