The other day I was waltzing in and out of stores in a local strip mall. Fully engulfed with purchasing items that I needed for a party I was planning. As I started walking out of the last store in that particular area, a man sitting on the sidewalk just on the other side of the glass store front. Kindly said to me "hi ma'am". At that point I wish I could tell you that I stopped what I was doing to respond the this gentleman. No. The thought of "I am so tired of people asking for money" bombarded my mind. I entertained the thought for several minutes. Continuing to walk to my vehicle as if I hadn't heard a thing. Then I began to try to convince Father GOD that he could have had more money than I. You should've seen how I was full throttle trying to explain to my heavenly Father my stand point in this situation.
After a few moments I was convinced that the Father understood where I was coming from. As I approached my door to unlock it. My best friend Holy Spirit began to speak. Gently whispering "Entertaining Angels Unaware". I couldn't do anything but agree. That man never asked me for a thing! He simply asked "How are you?" If I had even paused for a moment to embrace his question. I may have been able to receive a possible conversation with Father GOD through him. See that particular day. I felt as though I just needed to calm down. I had so much to do it felt like I could not get it together. My mind was racing with details. That I was forgetting so much. When I finally sat to ponder what Holy Spirit said. The tears streamed down my face. I am so humbled at how when I think I have gotten it all together Father GOD shows me that there is still more of my flesh that must be crucified in order for me to be like him. Thank you Father for never giving up on me.
He gently reminded me that I had a chance to get it right. Here's where things become so amazing to me. I drove up to the location the man sat. I motioned for him to come here. He got up and walked over to me. I shared with him the conversation between me and Father GOD through his Spirit. And apologized for my rudeness. Then I went on to say, I was fine and in return asked him about his day. Just like myself he had a lot going on. But when he saw me He just wanted to say hello. I promise that man never asked me for anything. My heart was torn into pieces. Father GOD shared with me that the way I felt, was exactly how he felt when I passed that man right by. I pray that my lesson helps you as if has for me. To treat people just like I want to be treated as a human being. Because though they could look human to us. They truly could be an Angel in Disguise......I love you much forever be blessed.
