#faithbites #faithjourney Jim
I went to sell a phone to a man I met through Facebook. His name was Jim. Jim is a 77 years young man in a little red truck. That’s how he described himself. I met him on the McDonald’s parking lot. We traded the phone for the money and started to talk. He is a disabled veteran, who loves God, sells costume jewelry and has many stories. We talked about his disability, his need for pain pills, his desire to work, the need for vocational and technicalt raining, and his views on the church. He talked about how I’m only 42 and to cherish the time as it goes quickly. We said God wants us to love him and people, and sometimes loving people is hard.
When I left I said be blessed. Ge said he was by God sending me to him. I’m thankful that God sent Jim
The Bible is filled with God, then Jesus, sending people into the world to do his work. He takes all kinds of people into service and uses them.
Just like in the Bible, God is still sending people to help you. You never know when or where you will meet them. It may be a kind old man in the McDonald’s parking lot, a 40 year old man full of enthusiasm, or any of a million different combinations.
God sent me Jim to see what my future could be. To know that he is always with me. Thank you Lord.
Do you see a Jim in your life? Maybe you are someone’s Jim. Know that God puts people in your life and you in others. Enjoy it and strike up a conversation
Lord, thank you for sending Jim. He showed me a possible future and how care, compassion, and loving you can dramatically change your life. Thank you for Jim and all the Jims in the world. Let us be a Jim to others and spread your word. In your name,Amen.
