. . .about eight years ago, I moved to a small town just about 15 miles outside of the bigger one. So I frequently go to the small post office where I live because I never have to wait. The tall, older postman always looked sad to me, so I made it a point to have conversation with him. After doing this for awhile, I decided I was going to go in there and witness to him. Before I could get the words out, he told me he had to do a funeral that afternoon. I said "What do you mean, do a funeral, you mean you're going to one?" He said "I'm a pastor of a small church, I'm performing the funeral service." I decided I didn't need to witness to a pastor.
I found out later he looked sad because he wasn't feeling good. . .had a bad back!
He's had surgery and doing much better now. We talk all the time over stamps.
Have you run into people that you felt led to witness to? I hope that you have because God's Word says we are ALL called to go out and share His Word. I wasn't good at this for the longest time but He helped me step out of that comfort zone and now it's on my mind all the time. I'm still not good at it, but then it's not my job to change someone; that job belongs to the Holy Spirit. Our job is just to tell. We can botch it up big time, but the Lord can take what we offer and make it into something beautiful. Step out and share. I just hope you don't go up unaware and share with a pastor! Or maybe. . .he's just the one who needs to hear a word. . .or maybe he just needs a good laugh. Go on, share! :)
