Finally got to posting, busy week this far.
Monday of this week I had to return my rental and pickup our 4Runner from the shop. I was shuttled over to the shop by one of the employees of the rental company.
We got to talking and just before he dropped me off I asked him if there was any pain in his body. He responded he didn’t have any. So I asked him if there was anything I could pray for him about. He searched and showed signs of not finding something so I started giving him ideas like health, family, finances, etc . . .
He then said he wanted to start a small business. I said well it just so happens I am a small business owner and I would love to Bless you in this.
So he got Blessed, I got Blessed and he was extremely thankful and encouraged.
Starting up conversations is the hardest part when talking to people.
Just remember it’s not about trying to convert someone to the way you believe. It’s always about the person with no strings attached. It’s about truly and genuinely being interested in the person because you truly Love them 😀
Here are a few one liners I use all the time that help break the ice but most importantly be you in all things. God didn’t make you to be someone else. He made you uniquely to encounter Him and this world in the way only you can. It’s beautiful. You’re beautiful!
So go break some ice . . .
“This might sound weird but I was wondering if you are experiencing any pain, physical or emotional?
“I just felt that you could use some encouragement. You mind if I send some your way?”
“What do you think of the weather?”
“What a day. How’s your’s going?
“This is a pretty long line. What do you think?”
“That’s a pretty cool tattoo, if you don’t mind me asking what does it mean?
Be encouraged, Be available, Be expecting. The Kingdom of God is at hand 😀
