Have you ever noticed how being around other people effects the way you feel? You can be walking around with the weight of the world on your shoulders, have a conversation with a friend, loved one or stranger and instantly feel a little lighter. What about when someone smiles or laughs, do you do the same thing in response to it? I sure do, and I don’t think twice about it. It’s like magic! If someone smiles, I smile. And if they laugh, I laugh. It’s contagious!
I believe these little moments are blessings from God. I am certain that he sends people into our lives when we need them the most, whether we are aware of the need or oblivious to it. It can be someone that we’ve known for years or someone that we’ve just met. Perhaps it’s for a moment or an extended period of time. Regardless, he uses people to bless us with what we need when we need it. It’s such a beautiful thing that I think we often miss, because it’s generally so subtle. So subtle that we sometimes fail to see the Lord’s hand in it.
So, is there something that you have been praying about that the Lord could be using someone else to help bring it to pass? Or, could it be that he is trying to show you something new through the actions of others? My challenge for you this week is to be present…to be fully aware of the people in your path. As you begin to notice them through eyes of faith, I believe you will inevitably see the Lord at work blessing you in more ways than one. And I would love to hear about it. If you are willing to share these experiences with me, you can comment below, send me an email or private message .
On that note, I pray that you all will have a wonderful Tuesday. May the day be filled with abundant blessings for each and every one of you. I’ll see you later today on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/thefaithfilledtraveler/ ) and right here tomorrow morning. Take care!
