Have you ever felt God put something on your heart that later you had
second thoughts about?
Well, If you had, I am with you. Just yesterday it happened to me.
Here I was in line at a store and I behind a gentlemen who was searching
for something in his wallet. I saw a box of newborn diapers in his pile to
buy and my heart was moved.
Almost immediately, I felt I was to buy his diapers for him. I didn't know
why but I felt impressed to do so.
I said a quick prayer, "God if this is of you show me and help me to say
something." (that is my toughest thing is to start talking, I get so nervous
that my belly shakes and my heart starts pounding so fast. It's really funny,
but no matter the physical issues, I kept feeling like I was suppose to do this)
Any, the guy couldn't find what he was looking for so he left the line, and
the ladies bagging put all his stuff to the side. (maybe it was a coupon or something)
I thought, "Okay, maybe that wasn't God" and I waited as my items were
Well, just as I was getting my receipt, the guy came back in line. This time
with a smaller bag of diapers. (I thought many thoughts at this point but
I will only tell you one. No wait a minute I better not, well, okay.. Don't be mad at
me, I am human lol I thought,
"if he could only buy the baby just a small bag why didn't he put back the
other things he wanted to buy) Okay so my flesh is real and really gets me
into trouble especially when it come to children.
At this point, I was still feeling the prompting to help. So I shared a bit about
God and the man kinda snickered, and I kept on talking and
going on that God loves him and has a plan for his life and that
God put on my heart to help.
At that point he changed, he got very appreciative, and I tried to leave him
The conversation was brief and the experience a blink of the eye, but I remember
getting so discouraged afterwards. I started to think, "Did I not say enough about
Jesus? Did I say the wrong thingS? Was is wrong to help when I could have spent it on
my children? Over and over all night I was plagued with feelings of inadequacy
and frankly "stupidity". I don't know I just started to second guess myself
all over again.
After committing it to the Lord, and being thankful that God could work it
for God for him and for me, I went to bed released and thankful God
is so good to me.
I woke up and on the scripture for this mooring is the top one and boy I was
so touched. This was the confirmation I needed that what I had done, though
probably not as classy as I could, I had done the right thing.
Proverbs 19:17 "He that hath pity upon the poor length unto the Lord, and that
which he hath given with he pay him again."
So Sweet of the Lord to have all that experience happen if just for me to read
this verse with such beautiful appreciation and a complete feeling of understanding
that He indeed was reaching out to that man in the store the night before.
You might be second guessing something in your life. Maybe a decision, a move
a choice, I don't know, but I am here to tell you YOUR GOD IS ALIVE AND REAL.
ASK Him and He will answer, Seek Him and you will find, KNOCK and it will be
Open, HE will show you in time and He is able to work it out for good for you if you
love Him and are His child.
Don't let the Enemy frighten you away from the beautiful thing that Lord
wants to do in your life.
God is listening; Ask Him.
He is faithful to answer.
By the way the scripture for tomorrow is
For I was hungered and you gave me meat, I was thirsty and you gave me drink: I was
a stranger and you took me in.
God is so good
