Good night, Kitty. Pleasant dreams.
In the courtroom while waiting for his case to come before the judge, Gary heard story after sad story of people who were losing their homes. Many went through the procedure as if it were familiar to them. But one woman named Leslie seemed bewildered. Gary sensed that she didnt know what to do or where to turn.
He tried to silence the quiet voice inside him that was urging him to help, but he couldnt. He thought of many reasons not to get involved. First, engaging strangers in conversation is not one of his strengths; second, he was afraid of being misunderstood. But he thought that the prompting was from God, and he didnt want to risk being disobedient.
When Gary saw Leslie leaving the courthouse, he spoke to her. Maam, he said, I heard your testimony inside the courtroom, and I believe God wants me to help you.
At first Leslie was suspicious, but Gary assured her of his sincerity. He made some phone calls and got her connected with people in a local church who provided the help she needed to keep her house.
God has called us to active duty (1 John 3:18). When we sense His prompting to help someone, we should be willing to say, I believe God wants me to help you.
Read: 1 John 3:16-23

King James Version (KJV)
6:1” In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.
2 Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.
3 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
4 And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.
5 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.
6 Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:
7 And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.
8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.”
Hi Mary Lou! I had a doctor’s appt. yesterday and had to leave before you told us the little story. What a pain some people can be! They can’t help it if they’re a bit stupid.
I have a piano and it isn’t a Steinway, period! I was lucky to buy just a very nice piano years ago. It needs tuning badly but I don’t play much anymore. I wasn’t that good anyway, just played for myself and hubby would listen from the den. My little girl grandchildren loved it when they were growing up. I have the cutest picture of the two of them dressed in matching red and white little dresses, sitting at the piano together. I wish it was loaded to my computer but maybe I will load it later down the road when I get to feeling better.
Sorry the lady treated MY FRIEND badly, especially because I know what a hard worker you truly are! (((Many Hugs)))
