True Evidence of God's Holy Spirit

My first job right out of High School while attending College was working at WalMart.  I always remember this middle aged man that came in close to the closing hours as he worked the overnight stocking.  While he would be pulling the display pallets to the front, he ALWAYS greeted me and and anyone around with a bright smile (missing some teeth)a nod and a wave; so genuine, humble and unasuming.

His smile and greeting always made me smile and feel good inside.  I have noticed that along lifes path, whenever individuals especially those that I don't know personally greet me brightly and genuinly, I litterally brighten up and feel (not sure how to describe), alive?

As I get older more mature, I feel a conviction that I need to be more purposeful in smiling more and greeting those in my path as I go about my daily tasks with joy and enthusiasm.  From personal experience, I know the power of a smile and a greeting and how it moves me and even shapes my outlook for that day/night/even…

God Favors Me......#4

I thank God for His continued mercy, grace, protection, deliverance and FAVORS that He displays in my life.  Hence the name of this Blog 'Highly Favored' 

It was around July last year, I was leaving work early to go to a business related appointment.  As I exited the building there was another young lady that I don't know personally but we normally greet each other and have minimal small talk about the weather in the elevators or just say hello while passing each other in the halls. 

So this particular day we exited the building and greeted each other and talked about how nice the weather was that day.  As we entered the parking lot, I said enjoy the rest of your day and headed towards my car.  I proceeded to turn the key and the car made a funny sound but did not start.  I tried it again and and a few more times and got the same and I'm thinking to myself....this could not be happening, why isn't the car starting? I have an important appointment in the next 30 minu…

Predictions and Preperations

So in the area that I live the Meteorologists predicted by relying on their trusted devices that there would be a severe winter storm coming our way (Yesterday). The models they used showed snowfall would be around 6-12 inches of snow. In some states some would say no big deal, but where I live 6-12 inches is a big deal. 

Every one rushed to the supermarkets the day before to stock up on necessary supplies; Including me (smile).  As It was my turn to get my items rung up, the Cashier said, "There isn't going to be any storm coming Y'all, it's just too warm today for there to be a storm like there predicting tomorrow."  What she was referring to is the sun was shining and it was mildly cold but not cold enough for a storm.

I didn't respond to her comment even though she was talking to me and the people behind me.  I just smiled and thought to myself, this is the same thing that happened during Noah's time, the people thought this thing called rain was imp…
