You are a light..let it shine. I have been very normally neighborly with some neighbors. They know that I am in ministry, but recently I understood they know who I am (in Him). They are Jewish..they told me they watched me speaking on You-tube..that was it for them..I knew how to pray, they decided…and, they poured their hearts out. Five years ago their 18 year old, only daughter, ended her life as a result of being bullied. They are still mourning her death, with tears. Oh WOW..people are hurting. My heart went out to them.
We have been praying and will continue for them. I think there will be some beautiful times ahead.
God is Good. He loves people. And, He has you to serve and love them with His Love. Stop being religious. There is a time to leave your Bible in the drawer. Be normal and friendly, without a religious agenda. I was taking out the garbage when we talked that day, not doing planned ministry. Let Him open doors. Eventually they will figure out that you are not your own. You are a light in a dark world. Shine on!
