Have you ever had a moment where you thought God told you to do something and you did it and then He confirmed it in a wonderful way? Well, let me tell you a “God story” about the second book in the Where Is Your Angel?™ series.
After writing the first story, it became evident there had to be a second book to follow up. I had enough material left over from the first book to start on the second. One night I sat down at the computer and wrote the second story. My husband was in bed when I was done. So I came over to him and read him the story. He gave his approval and kudos.
The next morning we went to a Donor/Scholarship Breakfast at the YMCA. The emcee there started talking about angels. He said lines directly out of the second book that I had just written the previous night! My mouth dropped and my eyes got wide. He said how Santa has his elves and God has helpers too. The first line in the second book is, “You've heard how Santa has his helpers. God has helpers, too. Angels are what we are called to watch over all of you.” I looked at my husband and said, “Was he in our bedroom last night?” My natural mind could not believe what I was hearing. My spiritual mind was saying, “Amen!”
A year after being at that breakfast I ran into the emcee at a YMCA Prayer Breakfast. We happened to be sitting at the same table. I then proceeded to tell him the above story about the second book. He laughed and his eyes were wide in wonderment. “You see,” he told me, “I wasn't planning on coming to this breakfast. I was tired and just didn't feel like it. But at the last minute I decided to come.” He went on to tell me that story encouraged him. He needed to hear that story because it affirmed him and what he was doing.
Sometimes in life God gives us a God story. Sometimes He gives us a God wink. But every time, it's a God thing.
What's your God story? Tell us and tell someone else. Who knows, it may just be the encouragement they need to hear today.
