I unexpectedly saw a long time friend at Soupplantation today.  We were both waiting for our lunch partners so it was a perfect opportunity to catch up.

To be honest, she is merely an acquaintance, and we barely recognized each other, but our conversation was so encouraging to me.

I told her I wasn’t sure if it was her because she looked younger than when I saw her several years ago.  “It’s the joy of the Lord!”  She replied.

When I asked her which church she was attending now, she went on to tell me that when she obeyed the Lord by submitting to her husband to attend a small Cantonese church (rather than the large church that she preferred), “blessings have just been pouring in.”  Her family life and her children have all been happier.  “The Bible is true,” she says.  “When you obey God, life is so much better.”

I said that it is often counter-intuitive, against our nature to want to submit to anything or anyone.  But when we by faith do what God says, and act according to what the Bible commands, He will take care of the rest.

“Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, then all these things shall be added unto you.”  Matthew 6:33

Thanks for that reminder, CA, just in that brief conversation.
