Random acts of Kindness
The other day I was searching for a new resource for teaching. I like to listening to scriptural teachings and not fluff or doctrinal rumors and wives tales.
I wanted to listen to a lady minister because, sorry guys, sometimes a girl just needs to hear another girl talk. There are some things that only another girl understands.
I went to a favorite website that is easy to search for ministries. My approach was scientific… well maybe not. I went through the alphabet looking for feminine names. Not an easy task as many names have become transgendered.
I did find a name with a teaching title that caught my attention. I listened to the message and it was great. I dropped the minister a line and left a thank you. Just a small thank you for a message that inspired me and was helpful.
Now here is the amazing thing. In the back of my mind I had a challenge that was interfering with a certain situation. Believe it or not but that “out of the blue” Thank you to a perfect stranger actually led to them fixing the challenge that I had. I didn’t ask them a thing. God just put it on their heart to share with me the exact thing I needed.
Talk about a random act of Kindness. Only God could have done that. Just a simple encouragement or a simple gesture of kindness because it seemed like the right thing to do. And Voila, God is on the scene and does something that only He can do.
I’m still a little awestruck. Just to think out of all the people in the world with all the issues in the world. God would bless me just because he loves me. Now that’s amazing.
I’m nobody any more special than anyone else but, my heavenly Father thinks I ROCK! He thinks you rock too. The next time you feel inspired to encourage someone or show a random act of Kindness, don’t think it’s silly and skip out on a blessing. Do it anyway and be obedient. Then be quick to recognize what God does on your behalf and praise Him for it.
