On this page, I share my personal experiences with God and what I’m up to.

Today I went to Whole Foods to get a smoothie. The guy checking me out was completely flustered. Lets just say it wasn’t his day. He was getting really aggravated with the register and was cussing under his breath. He couldn’t even force a fake smile to his customers. To be honest, I felt bad for the guy. He left everyone he helped check out with an annoyed expression on their faces. When it came to my turn to be checked out, I was a little frightened to even speak a word to him. When he forgot to give me a bag, I just smiled awkwardly and said, “have a nice day” and ran away. You can look at people like this guy in two different ways. One is the sympathetic way. This way is thinking that this guy probably hasn’t had the best day and trying not to judge him. The second way is thinking to yourself: who peed in his cheerios this morning? Either way of looking at the situation is complete human nature, but only one is what God expects us to do.
There are many grouchy people out in the world. Unfortunately, everywhere you go there are bitter people. It’s a sad thing to think about, but with the help of God, you can maybe help those grumps out. Matthew 5:14 says, “Be the light”. Y’all it’s that simple. Be the light. Wherever you go, give a simple smile to someone. Say hello to someone you don’t usually talk to. As Keb Mo likes to say, “Let your light shine, let your love show.” If you don’t know who Keb Mo is, that’s alright. Check out his song below. It’s good.
I’ll leave you with this verse: “In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” –Matthew 5:16
