“Walk in Love”
walked into the grocery store
took a glance and thought no more
of the man with the vacant eyes staring at me
Until I left the store I saw
a duffle bag of change and he called,
“Ma’am, do you think you could help me?”
Holy Spirit be my guide
help me put aside my pride
and live a life of Love –
take these feet of mine, one step at a time
help me stay in line
help me walk in love
everywhere I go, help me always show
Your light, let it glow
help me walk in love
I didn’t have much time that day
I met a lady, felt led to pray
as she shared the weight
of her story
Hadn’t been to church in a while
overwhelmed with life, still she smiled
about Jesus and His glory
Lord, open up my eyes to see
More of You and less of me
God is continuing to stretch me and take me out of my comfort zone. I saw a man standing outside of a local store and he stood there with a blank stare. I noticed him right away, but I kept on walking and went inside the store. I got my things and as soon as I exited the store, I saw him crouched down against the brick building. He was huddled up and had a duffle bag beside him. He looked up and asked me if I could help him. His duffle bag was full of change- so full, I don’t know how he could even lift it by himself!
Now, I don’t always give money to everyone who asks- only when I know the Lord is prompting me to do it. This was one of those times. I happened to have some change and gave it to him. I stepped into another store for just a few minutes and when I came out, I looked for the man and he was nowhere to be found.
Now, I know I wasn’t in there for more than 2-3 minutes, and there was no way he lifted that big ole bag and left that quickly. I even drove around the parking lot to look for him. There was no explanation for how he had left so quickly. But I was so glad I had stopped to help him because I knew that if I had not been obedient to do so, I would have regretted it.
Everything about my walk with Him revolves around obedience- to do all the little things He asks of me.
like stopping to help a stranger
or to pray with someone
or to write this song and share it with you 🙂
Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. Ephesians 5:1
