Bless Your Heart by Cindy Colley

“I’ve been praying about that.”

Last night, Glenn and I ate our supper on an outdoor patio at an outdoor mall. In the midst of that dinner where we had already commented about the vulgarity of some of the passersby– immodesty in dress and speech, (We were really taken aback by the extreme lack of and transparency of clothing all around us….Glenn even commented, “Do you think soon it’s going to be acceptable to just go without clothing, entirely?”)– we overheard a young couple at the table beside us. The high school or younger college-aged man said to his female friend, “I know. I’ve really been praying about that.” One overheard comment about our God, in a world of messiness from the father of lies, was amazingly encouraging to us. We found a moment later to encourage them. I’m determined to say his name, speak of prayer and blessings, and pass out my little invitation-to-worship cards more consistently. We need to speak His name in public places–not to appear holy, but to be holy and encourage others to holiness; to find ways to inform others of HIS holiness and to lead them to the truth that frees from the one who entangles and tortures. 

As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”  1 Peter 1:14-16
