Every day from now on, will be a day without fear.
I chose not to dwell on anger.
I chose, instead, to walk in love.
I was driving down the road and I saw a young, African American boy. I saw him throw a rock. It landed right in front of my car. It almost seemed as if he was trying to hit my car with the rock.
I wasn't angry. I was concerned. I stopped the car and asked him if he was ok. He looked like he was surprised that I stopped. He looked like he was surprised that I wasn't angry.
I told him that I wanted to give him something. I handed him my canyon poem.
I wanted Jesus to take him from whatever state he was in, and bring him out of his canyon into a place of peace and rest.
I went into the grocery store. I felt the Spirit of God's love upon me. I wanted to buy someone's groceries today. I didn't do it. I know that I should have and I'm glad that the idea came to me, because I can see myself doing this in the very near future.
I'm going to simply say, "Jesus asked me to buy your groceries today." And then I will tell them how much Jesus loves them and maybe give them some flowers to grow.
After I left the grocery store, I went to the gas station. I gave the man inside a copy of my canyon post.
and then, I ventured off to work.
I want everyday to be a day without fear. I want everyday to be a day that I confident and courageous in sharing the love of God. To me, there is no other way to be.
I am excited about sharing this beautiful Light I've been given. It's the only hope for this lost world. I feel fearless and I am thankful.
My heart is full.
Today I heard that song that moved my heart. Baby Bear and I ventured to the coffee shop and I heard it for the first time. It's a song by Phillips, Craig, and Dean called "Nothing to Prove."
I want to share the lyrics....
No fears. But isn't that how life is meant to be lived?
