Last Saturday I made my monthly trip to Costco.....I took my sweet Gabrielle with me cause it is sure nice to have an extra body to push the cart.... :) gotta use the teen labor when you can




As I hauled my cart over to the cash register and began to unload, Gabrielle took over for me placing items on the belt and the checker began to swipe the groceries over the scanner. 
Beep, beep, beep as each item passed over the scanner. He asked me the familiar friendly checker question, "how are you?" which I quickly replied, "I am good how are you?" He began to answer the question with "I am good......" then stopped mid sentence and said "you know what? things aren't" He proceeded to tell me a story about a person that got into a car accident with him and the other person did not have any insurance. He said the young man had kids in the car and was telling him how he was out of work. My cashier was in distress about what had happened. He expressed how he felt bad for the young man with the kids yet his car was smashed and his insurance would be in jeopardy if he turned in a claim. I stood there taking in each word as it came spilling out of his mouth with a genuine concern for the other person. As he stopped to take a breath he said "I have been thinking about talking to my minister about what I should do... I know I could turn it into my insurance yet I don't want it to effect the other driver and I need my car fixed." 
As he said this he looked intently at me and said "what should I do?" I thought to myself I've been in that position before.... in the middle of a moral dilemma really wanting to do the right thing yet not knowing what that is. 
I asked him.."are you a Christian?" he looked me directly in the eye and said "yes", waiting for my reply. I said, "I would pray and ask God what to do.....He knows you and he knows the other person involved...He will know what you should do, how you should handle it. When we don't know what to do He can give us the answer cause He has all the answers." 
His eyes brightened and a smile came across his lips and he said "thank you! thank you so much!" as he reached out and shook my hand. 
 "I so appreciate that...you are right, that is what I need to do."
In that moment I could have offered my own thoughts, yet I knew my words were inadequate.
So I directed him to
 The One who knows everything
"Seek the Lord while He may be found
call on him while he is near
For my thoughts are not your thoughts
and my ways are not your ways"
Isaiah 55
