Encouraged by the Truth

Misty came into the store recently. As I was ringing up her purchase, I noticed she was reading our blackboard. After I finished ringing her up, I asked her what she thought about the verse on it.

 “Do not be grieved, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10

As we were talking, she told me her mother had passed recently due to health issues. Misty said that when she read our scripture on the blackboard, it had encouraged her.

I was able to pray with her and I gave her a hug. I expressed my sorrow for her loss and that I would be praying for her. She thanked me and went on her way.

We never know what a customer has going on in their world, but to hear that verse had encouraged Misty in her season of grief is what we want to do…encourage people in God’s word, God is our Healer in all things.
