By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.
As children of God, we are called to love, unconditionally. This is not always the easiest thing to do, especially with those who "seemingly" push our buttons and make us feel uncomfortable. On a daily basis, here at the cafe, we are confronted with difficult situations that require us to take a deep breath, close our eyes and go to our Father in prayer to help us respond in love. This causes us to remember: a) we can do NOTHING without God, b) we walk with the same authority and love as Christ did, and c) that each and every one of us deserves the love and grace of God. Focusing on those truths and relying on the Holy Spirit to guide us is paramount to navigating thru our day. When we do this, we are more likely to allow love to lead our response and reduce the likelihood of us relying on our own strength. So, when that customer says their toast is too burnt or someone gets into a "scuffle" in front of the cafe, we can respond in such a way that the situation is not only diffused, but the person knows it's coming from a place of love AND they do not repeat the behavior. Our father WANTS us to be successful and has given us all the tools we need to succeed. Glory be!
