Here is a thought-provoking video for those who are intrigued by the response people have after receiving an unexpected blessing.
The producers of the film went to a Kroger’s grocery store, and staged a man to pay random customer’s bills without any warning. The film documents the surprised responses and exclamations of joy.
“Man pays for stranger’s groceries”
People were surprised and positively so, because they were not accustomed to having someone else appear out of nowhere and pay their grocery bill. Many were genuinely grateful and deeply moved by the random act of kindness. But the question that grabbed my attention was, “Are we surprised when God steps in and does something wonderful in our life? Do we expect God to step in and help, or do we live day after day figuring we have to struggle and toil and make things work all on our own?” If so, it can lead to a feeling of “Life is hard.”
But it doesn’t have to be that way. God is present, all the time. God’s love is here all the time. We can lean on it with faith, and there will be times when divine help appears in the most unexpected way and catches us by surprise. But we shouldn’t be surprised, for being blessed by God should feel like a normal occurrence whether it comes through another person or seemingly out of nowhere.
Expect God’s blessings every day.
