Last night at work, I had my co- worker/cube mate come up to me before she left for the day (since this will be my last time working with her) and told me something that just made my heart so overjoyed. She told me that she wanted me to leave this place knowing that my relationship with Christ, my testimony and my witness is what sent her into the arms of accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior a while back. She went on to say the first time she came onto our team she had so many doubts about Jesus...so many hangups about God...thought that she needed to be perfect first before she needed to be forgiven and accepted by God, but she was really searching....and that "sitting next to this bible thumping southern hill billy from Charlotte was no accident in the process of it all." lol.
This is the one thing I have prayed and doubted so much in my life is that are people seeing Jesus' light reflected in me, and am I being a good witness for Christ? I have always questioned myself...am I being too Godly...what if I'm too forward about my walk with God...what if I turn people away from being too overly zealous about Christ, and wondered if His light was even reflecting at times. She went on to tell me that I was apart of her testimony and when she shares about how she came to the truth of the Gospel she tells people about how my life in Jesus changed hers! Wow. God. Wow! If working at this place for the last 5 years was just so our paths could cross and Christ be glorified and made known then it was so much worth it and more!
So something I have learned is that I should never doubt the conversations...the talks...the walk that I display in front of others. It speaks volumes and it plants huge seeds to those who are struggling to believe in Christ and those that are right there on the verge of either walking away or accepting the Gospel as truth. Hallelujah! I am giving God all the glory and honor and praise...that there is one more saint in the kingdom and that I was simply just a vessel.
What an awesome way to leave a place knowing you left a legacy of Christ! Talk about going out with a BANG mom! :)
