Several years ago I had an ex-girlfriend send me a friend request on Facebook. Out of respect for my wife I declined the request and sent her a message wishing her well. A few weeks ago after praying for God to show me people I could help, I had an overwhelming desire to send her a friend request on Facebook. I hadn’t honestly thought of her for years so this struck me as very odd. Like I do so many times, I kind of ignored this tugging not really sure why I had this random desire. A few days later I again had this same strange desire. Thinking that the desire must be from God, I sent her a friend request that day.
Later that day, I was blown away to find out that she had been through quite a lot in the last six months including losing her 15 year old nephew in an accident. She told me she was overwhelmed and confused, and that she had just recently started attending church. I could tell she was really hurting. When she asked why I was sending her a friend request now, I told her the story. I told her I did it because I felt God wanted me to. She messaged me back, “I am just sitting here crying. A Lot of things keep happening that make no sense. I'm sitting here Just blown away!”
A few days later she read my first book and sent me another message that read, “I can't understand or explain how you knew to reach out and how your book has helped me besides the power of God.” Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” For those that believe, never forget the power that lives inside you. Romans 8:11 “And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you…” One person can make a difference. You can make a difference.
