Well, if you read my posts from last week, you would know that I had a rough week. I was being attacked left and right. So on Thursday when I wrote We Are Called To Love Everyone, I thought the drama had ended. Nope, it wasn’t over because He wasn’t finished. That night, I prayed and He impressed on me, I mean IMPRESSED! He wouldn’t let me ignore it. I knew I wasn’t finished with whatever it was He wanted me to do. I knew I had to complete the mission. I knew I had to speak the last offender, the one I hadn’t spoken to yet. I kept asking Him, “What do I say?” I knew He would let me know when and what to say, if anything. I walked into work feeling triumphant, yet curious, all at the same time. I walked by this person’s office about 3 times and He hadn’t pushed me into it, so I knew it wasn’t the time yet. On the 4th time I had to walk passed it, I got that little nudge. I’m searching for what to say but I got nothing. I walked in, she looked at me, I looked at her, and when our eyes met, I instantly knew what the message for her was. I simply walked over to her as she was about to say something, I put my finger to my lips and embraced her. I felt her shutter a bit. I turned and walked away. She came out of her office after awhile and I could tell she had been crying. She came up to me and was about to say something and I said, “No, don’t say a word, there is no need, it’s done, it’s over.” She looked at me and smiled big and said, “Thank you for that Andi.” Can I tell you now that at that moment I felt complete compassion for her and not one ounce of anger that I had felt in the previous days before? Yes! That is what He was wanting me to learn out of all of this. She had been used by the enemy and I don’t even think she knew it. We can conquer evil with doing good. Just as His word says. He doesn’t lie.
Let me tell you that I had prayed all week, and hard. I am talking overtime, overdrive, 6.4 liter Hemi V8 style prayer….powerful!! I was practically begging for answers from Him. Even though I know we don’t beg Him for anything, I felt desperate.
When it was all over and done, I felt like I could run a mile without breaking a sweat. He is so good and so faithful to us. A simple hug goes a long, long way for someone. It felt fantastic to give her that feeling of comfort. Who knows what she had or has been going through. All I know is that, when He speaks to us, we better listen and finish the assignments that He gives us.
This last week He again confirmed for me that when we’re going through a storm, He is right there with us. He never left me. He never faltered. He held my hand, carried me, let me lean on Him, the whole way through. Talk about the perfect Father that we all share! He is ever faithful and so loving!! I can’t say enough how much I love HIM!!!!! Because I know He loves me.
