TODAY I went out to lunch at restaurant I’ve never been to. I was by myself and really just wanted time to be still. A very sweet young lady came by to take my order. She was very attentive but I could feel she was in so much pain. After several times at the table, I asked her if she was ok and she got big tears in her eyes. She said she was a single mom of a five year old and just having an overwhelming day. She went on to say she was trying to work enough to go back to school and get her 2 year degree.
The manager came over and I shared what a great waitress she was and the manager shared this was her first day. She was really good.
I took today as again a reminder that ministry is NOT inside the walls of the church but where ever God sends us during our daily journey.
All this young lady needed was a word of encouragement. It’s free and it’s easy!
Let’s start speaking life instead of trying to kill people’s spirits with words that certainly are not from God!
