Have you ever had a fight with your Heavenly Father? I have. I have had a lot within this past year. I bicker with Him about His plans for my future. It has been a long year battling with Him but I finally surrendered a month and a half ago. It was amazing. I also realized how emotion God has made me. He has been working on my heart for a long time. He is healing me and a month ago it was brought to my attention.
I was working at TJ Maxx as a cashier. I make it a point to be kind to every customer and make them feel welcomed. I also try to make a connection with them, whether it be something about their purchase or something about the weather, etc. I had an elderly woman come up, I greeted her, checked out her items, thanked her for coming in, and told her to have a great day. She picked up her bag and started to walk away. A few feet later she turns back around and says, “Can I ask you a question?” I responded, “Yes.” She goes on to ask me, “Are you a believer?” I smiled and answered, “Yes.” “I can tell” were the words that stopped me in my tracks and almost made me cry on the spot. Here is this woman, a complete stranger to me and she can tell who my Father is. She can tell I am His daughter and that I am on this earth for His purpose.
We sometimes need to be reminded that whatever we do, whoever we talk to, and wherever we go, He is in control and He will shine through us. I thought I was doing my job as a TJ Maxx associate, but it turns out I was doing the Lord’s work. He is and always will be my rock, the reason I live, and who I will serve everyday no matter what. He had that woman make a difference in my life in a simple way. She was being honest. I may never see her again, but she made a difference in my life today. I hope everyone can see this light inside of me because it is going to be shining brighter from now on.
Until next time my sassy peaches,
