God Speaking

During the week of August 7, I saw how God was moving in my life. I saw Him drawing people to me and me to them. This usually is not the norm for me. But I was on a mission. I would ask and He would answer by presenting people to me to help me along the way. I’ll share with you what happened last week. I had set a date to meet up with someone for coffee. I’m not a big coffee drinker. As I was driving I was listening to music on my iPod. Sometimes the radio is too much for me. To tell you the truth alone time in my car allows me to connect with God through prayer and worship. So I’m driving doing my thing and this song comes on. It doesn’t sound familiar but it immediately grabs my attention. For the rest of the car ride this song is on repeat. It brought tears to my eyes. Take a listen then continue.

 

You see God was speaking to me. Let me continue to explain.

So I arrived at the location early and found us some seats. Seeing that I hadn’t been to this coffee shop before I went to look at the menu. I needed to make sure that Green tea was on the menu. A few minutes later she arrived.  We both ordered and sat down. Let me give you some back drop on how this day all came about.

I was introduced to her back in June because I was inquiring about a missions trip. She began to give me some info and said that she was going back at the end of June for 3 weeks. We then became Facebook friends. When she got back we messaged on Facebook and I told her that I would love to hear about how her trip went. We saw each other a few times in church making small talk. One day I mentioned to hear that I was writing my story and she asked if she could read it. I said sure. At the time I didn’t think much into it. So we set a date and time to meet up. It is not to often that I share with someone who I am not very close to. I am guarded in that way but I felt that it was safe share with her.

Our conversation started when I asked her about the very first mission trip that she took. She had returned in late July. Just listening to how God was moving in her life gave me hope about my situation. At some point in our conversation there was an awkward silence and that’s when I handed her the piece of paper with “My Story”. I just asked her to read it. I was facing my fear. I was doing something that I thought I couldn’t. I will admit that at first I was apprehensive. But the prompting I got to do this was strong. I didn’t understand the WHY but did it anyway. Thoughts of what will she say or even think started playing in my mind. I quickly shut them out. As she read I watched her facial expressions. It looked like tears were welling up in her eyes. She paused looked up at me and said “your story resonates with me.” I was shocked. You see although I didn’t know the WHY God did. She finished reading and said that I had a powerful story. She shared a bit of what she was going through and had gone through. It was such a good afternoon. Although we didn’t know each other well God connected us on that day.

I was able to share my story with this person. I am hoping to share this same story within my blog one day.

I thought I would share some of the Lyrics from the song;

Have you ever cried a tear
That you could not explain?
Have you ever met a stranger
Who already knew your name?
What if it’s Him? What if it’s God speaking?

Who knows how He’ll get a hold of us?
Get our attention to prove He’s enough
He’ll do and He’ll use whatever he wants to
To tell us ‘I love you’

His ways are higher, His ways are best

Though sometimes strange

What could be stranger than God in a manger?

Who knows how He’ll get a hold of us?
Get our attention to prove He’s enough?
Who knows how He’ll get a hold of you?
Get your attention to prove He’s enough?
He’ll do and He’ll use whatever He wants to
To tell us ‘I love you’

God is speaking, ‘I love you’
