I have to get this done.
The kids need that.
My husband wants me to remember to…
Oh, I need to stop by the store.
Then maybe we can have lunch together.
The car needs gas.
Okay time for that appointment we keep putting off.
I wish we could hurry up and get these other things done
so we can get to what we want to do;
So we can get to the “important stuff!”
At the optometrist’s office the other day,
it seemed like just one of those errands that needed done
if we open our eyes (and hearts) God uses SO many opportunities we sometimes don’t even notice
that we could,
JUST FOR A MINUTE,
plant a seed,
share our faith,
or speak life into someone’s day.
We almost overlooked an opportunity placed right in front of us at the eye doctor appointment.
We mentioned we are moving to Alaska and why.
“Oh, you kinda feel called?”
“Yes we do.”
“Yeah, the universe does that.”
“God does that. It’s pretty amazing what He’s doing.”
Everywhere we go there is a minute to minister to someone.
The way we speak to people matters.
…the check-out guy at the grocery store,
the server at a restaurant,
when we check in at a hotel,
to the new employee trying her best to learn how to do her first job,
to the office staff at the eye doctor.
It doesn’t take an hour long “Bible study” to plant a seed.
Sometimes it can lift and change a person’s day if we’re watching for those times God places a perfect opportunity right in front of us in our everyday lives JUST FOR A MINUTE.
