ARMS OF JESUS
A few weeks ago I sat working on a message about over committing ourselves, and how we should not feel guilty when we say no. I leaned back in my chair, closed my eyes and heard the all to familiar "ping" indicating I had an incoming email. Thinking that I needed a short break, I opened it.
"I need your help" it began. Hmmmmmm, I'm working on a message about over commitment, and 'she needs my help?'
I continued reading the email, already composing the answer, and knowing I wouldn't feel guilty saying no....I'm already over-committed......
Included in the body of the email were suggestions about how I could help. One of them was 'prayer', I remember thinking, okay, that's easy....I always pray.
By the time I finished reading, I knew prayer was the answer. Yup.....I would definitely pray. I realized my answer (to myself) came too quick. I needed to pray about this before I answered the email.
I had lunch with that precious sista yesterday. As we sat discussing her upcoming project we prayed for each other. We bowed our heads and hearts right there in the middle of that noisy, busy restaurant, praying over each of our concerns.
The Holy Spirit reached out and I felt His arms around me saying, Job 16:20 My intercessor is my friend as my eyes pour out tears to God;
My sweet friend was asking me to come be an intercessor for one hour at the Relay for Life, the American Cancer Society. One hour..............
Pray for me tomorrow, as I fulfill God's call.
