Wednesday Greetings,

Last week.... it was one of those days.   The challenges of life were heavy.   I took a break and went to the gym.  I just wanted to work off the struggle I was carrying.   As I entered the gym, some guy was lifting at the bicep curl machine.  As I walked by we looked at each other, nodded heads, and he said,

"Have a blessed day."

I walked three steps more and realized.... it was just the message I needed to hear.  I stopped, turned... (expecting actually that he wouldn't be there, I thought maybe it was God appearing and disappearing), but he was there.  I said to him, "Thank you.  You don't know how much I needed to hear that just now."   He nodded.  

That was it.  He wasn't an angel, he wasn't a mysterious appearance of God... he was just a guy who reminded me that there are blessings in every day, even the challenging ones.

It didn't change my whole life; it didn't even change my whole day.  It didn't take away the challenges.

But it was enough and gave me a moment to refocus and remember... God is with me, and sometimes that's enough to know.

Have a blessed day.
Peace in our journeys,
Pastor Steve Melde
