While sitting in Panera tonight working on a project, there was a couple seated directly in front of me that were very much enjoying one another’s company. They shamelessly showed their affection by nuzzling, kissing, hugging, feeding each other, etc… They were so overt in their display that I was a little embarrassed. I tried not to look at them but it was so hard because they were just a few feet away. Every so often as I glanced at their exchanges, I noted that they were completely oblivious of me, or anyone else in that place.
I went on with my work, listening to worship music on my headphones when one of my favorite worship songs came on. Suddenly I had an overwhelming urge to worship. I struggled to restrain myself from lifting my hands and praising. Then I heard a voice in my spirit say, “Will you not kiss me in public? Am I not worthy of the same public display of affection that this couple has shown one another?” With these words I was blown away and released! Following the example of the love birds seated in front of me, I began to shamelessly show my affection for my Heavenly Lover. I lifted my hands, and I sang and praised and cried and smiled and… I was completely oblivious to anyone else in that place!
Then the couple got up to leave, and I can only imagine that they were on their way somewhere that they could finish what they had started. And this is what I have to say to you:
#If you will kiss God in public, He will blow your mind when you get home!
