God is so cool!

       Hope each and every one of you are having a very blessed day! Today I wanted to share something that happened to me this week, that I thought was very cool and SO like God. :)
For those of you that don’t know, I have an Etsy shop in which I sell small dog harnesses. If you don’t know what Etsy is, you NEED to find out! Etsy is a very fun website where people can have their very own “shops” and sell a variety of items anywhere from handmade items, to vintage items.
Anywho, I got this “convo” (Etsy’s very modern word for message) from a lady interested in buying two harnesses from me. She decided to make a custom order, so we had to “convo” back and forth quite a few times. In the course of “convoing” I thought to myself, this lady is really nice? Not that it should be surprising, but it was a different friendly. It was an extra step of generosity. I started thinking to myself, “I think this lady may be Christian”. Later on, I message her back and I close the message with the word, “blessings”. She then replies back, I just knew you were Christian!!!” I was so amazed when I received this, because I had been suspecting the same thing about her! Now I KNEW that she was a Christian as well.
I tell this story simply to say this, all that lady did was be a genuinely nice person and God’s light was shining right through her. Even though she is thousands of miles away, I’ve never seen her, or spoke to her in person, but I knew she was a believer. Why? Because once we accept God into our hearts, He comes in and takes over. It has nothing to do with us, but EVERYTHING to do with who He is. God schedules divine appointments for us every day and I truly believe that is exactly what this was. Be kind to one another, be kind to a stranger, and let Him shine right through you!
