Let them see You in me

Sunday mornings are my favorite. 

I’ve picked out my clothes on Saturday night because I want to be all prepared as I wake before all others in my home. Plus, I want to look cute, I won’t lie. 

Sundays mean, we as a church body huddle up together, get encouraged, learn more about the God we serve and love on our friends. 

I sit in the 4th row. It’s my comfort spot. Why? Not sure but I don’t think I’m the only other person who sits in the same spot every week. My friend Lara sits behind me, my small group usually sits in front of me. I love to see my friends each and every week.

I also enjoy meeting new people. 

Today, as I sit in my same seat, a new person sits in front of me. He comes in during worship. 

I notice he carries a backpack. 

I notice he is not super clean and that he has an odor. 

My mind immediately goes to homelessness. I have many homeless friends. Sometimes I smell too. I work outside so yeah I stink too. 

As my mind wanders to the gentleman in front of me……..Charma really? Why are you fixating on his personal appearance? 

As soon as he turns around I make eye contact and I shake his hand and introduce myself. I am so grateful to meet you. He gives me his name with a smile. 

He sits alone and others notice his odor as well. 

Now I can’t do a thing about his appearance but I can make him feel welcome. 

I can’t make other people accept him but I grab the back of his seat while we sing and pray for him. I pray that he sees Jesus in me. 

I don’t say this to say “look at me, how accepting I am of someone different then me” I say this so maybe you will take a moment and pray for my new friend Shaun. 

Pray for his safety

Pray that he’s sees Jesus and that he feels Jesus’ love in so many other ways today. 

Happy Sunday friends.
