taken off guard

19 Oct

Jesus loves you.

This was said to me this morning while I was workin at the bux. I handed the lady at the counter her coffee and commented on how cute her purse was and gave her the left over change. She then replied with “Thanks, have a great day and Jesus loves you.”

If you were the next person in line or a small fly on the wall you would have thought that I was spacing out. I was trying to remember if I really had heard someone tell me that Jesus loves me.

But WHY is this something that takes me off guard? Shouldn’t I be excited that someone wanted to bless me this morning? Yes, it did touch my heart and made me smile, after I realized what was said, but it is not the norm nowadays.

People usually don’t even say anything to me. Even after I tell them to have a great day or thanks for coming in.


What is something that has taken you off guard?

    that would surprise me too. because my ears just aren’t used to hearing it. especially in that context.

    one time when i sneezed, a stranger responded with “God bless.” it stuck out to me so much because so many–including myself–shorten it to “bless you”. and i loved that she changed it up.

    i’ve tried doing the same. it’s hard. it doesn’t roll off my tongue so easily. takes conscious thought. but i want to keep trying. because look at how it lingered with me… maybe it will linger with someone else.
