A few weeks ago I was sitting in church and I noticed a lady sitting near us.
I felt quite distinctly that I had to give her a really nice journal/ notebook for her church / Bible study notes, something "too nice to write in".
And then I got home and all that was forgotten.
Next Sunday I remembered again, and when I left, I forgot.
But last week, I wrote it down and last night, I actually had a perfect one for her which I wrapped up nicely.
I also wrote a note that God wanted her to have this and when she uses it, she should know she is loved.
Today I arrived at church and she wasn't there.
I thought, "oh NO! Now I've missed it and the woman left and now what?"
(I'm on a permanent mission to listen and obey, and I personally feel your ability to hear increases the more obedient you are)
Anyway, about 20 minutes from the end of the service, I spotted her in another section of the church.
She started packing up before church ended so I panicked a little but I grabbed the present and rushed over there.
"This is for you," I said, as I touched her shoulder.
She looked surprised and off I went.
Her daughter then appears next to me asking me for my name and phone number, which I wrote down, but I said, "it's got nothing to do with me".
After church she found me (I asked the daughter what her mom's name was) and she thanked me, again I said, "it's not from me, God told me to give it to you" and you know what she said?
When I opened the gift, I started crying. I always have to see to everyone else in my family and there's never anything left for me. But now I know God is looking out for me!
And of course, I beamed! I love this stuff.
Most of all, I loved being a vessel who listened and was able to play a tiny part in showing this lady that she is loved by Him.
