At The Right Place, At The Right time
October 5, 2019
There was a moment earlier this week on October 1st, that really stood out to me. We had some free time and were thinking to go to our favorite local cafe in the late afternoon. We went there and it was closed. We decided then to go to the McDonalds nearby, we got our order and sat down at our usual seat, after a while it got very cold with the air conditioning, and so we moved to the area where there was more sunlight. Someone there saw us with a Bible open and began talking to us about the Bible. This was the first time someone talked to us about the Bible in McDonalds. This desert seems so difficult and the people here seem really unfriendly, but here was one friendly Christian who took a few moments to talk about God. I think about a verse:
The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” (Deuteronomy 31:8)
So many things had to happen that led up to this conversation. First off, the cafe that we like had to be closed and it was, and then there are several McDonalds nearby, and we chose one, and then the air condition was so cold that we had to change rooms. It is like God prepared all these different elements, to have this one simple interaction.
Father in Heaven, sometimes I get so amazed as You and what You do. This week I was so amazed that You led us at the right place and at the right time to meet someone who encouraged us. Please open my eyes to more opportunities that You are at work and that You are speaking.
