My granddaughter, Hope, is an avid reader. At only four years of age, she can’t seem to get enough of books. She can even read some words herself. I think that is why she said the other day that she thought God was just reading a book, and we were just characters. Not her exact words, but the gist, and very profound anyway for someone so young.

and they have better communication skills.

I couldn’t help but wonder what my story would tell. I’m sure at times my actions would make God smile, but other times, especially the words from my mouth, might make Him cringe.

Proverbs 5:21 tells us For your ways are in full view of the LORD, and he examines all your paths. The way we live, tells God that we have a tendency to forget He is watching. No matter what we do, the good, the bad, and the ugly, He sees. Whether we’re rude to someone in person or hiding anonymously on the Internet, God knows.

I can honestly say I think God is proud of my upcoming book, Holding the Hand of a King because it might help someone. He’s probably not so proud when I get discouraged with book sales and talk about writing Christian porn. Unfortunately, isn’t that how most Christians behave? We have a habit of not waiting on God’s time, instead, we do what we want. While in a book it might make for an interesting story, in real life, it only causes problems.

Obviously, I’m still a work in progress and need some edits. All of us do. Nobody will ever be perfect in this world. We have to do the best we can by following God.

So, what about you? If you were a character in a book God was reading, what would your story tell? Would it be G, PG, or R rated? We all need to make sure that our stories make God smile. That is a small gift to give Him for the large gift He gave us on the cross.

Showing the Kindness of God

How many of you have missed opportunities to pray with others? Maybe you’ve had a sick friend in the hospital and you were so focused on them, you didn’t pray with the other stranger sitting in the waiting room.

That happened to me the other day. As I waited to appear on a live television show, I was nervous. I’d never done TV before, so it was natural. I prayed and then tried to focus on the show. A couple was sitting across of me and my daughter while we waited. They were the community organizers for the Eastside Market. The man, Dana Miller, owner of The Mobile Grooming Experience, asked if I was nervous. I said a little bit. He got up, walked over, put his hand on my shoulder, and prayed for me. (His talk on The Chat is here: http://www.firstcoastnews.com/entertainment/television/programs/the-chat/the-chat-friday-february-10-eastside-market/406843809)

I was shocked by Mr. Miller’s kindness.

We are reminded as Christians through 1 Corinthians 13:11-13 that When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.  For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. Though Christians talk about kindness, it’s not that common to see out in public. We’ll hear about it when they’re talking about their testimony or in the backroom of some charity, but to have such a visual display without any concern for who might be watching was wonderful.

Mr. Miller could have sat there focused on his own business and what he’d planned to say when he was on the show, however, he turned his attention to others.

I am grateful for Mr. Miller’s kindness. I know his prayer calmed my nerves. And it helped just knowing someone else cared about my feelings. In this day of me-me-me, it was nice to see someone not just say they care about others, but to show it.

Mr. Miller is trying to raise money to complete fixtures to his mobile grooming bus through a Go Fund Me page. If you’re interested in helping this gentleman, the site is https://www.gofundme.com/h7ayxgpy.

I think it’s important to support Christian businesses. And this man showed the true nature of Christianity when he showed kindness to me, a complete stranger.
