Still Small voice
3/3/2009 5:03:01 AM

Obedience is the key to an abundant life of blessings.

Yesterday it snowed in the Carolinas and so I spent much of my day inside. However, after lunch I decided to check out the road conditions and ride into town to pick up a license plate for my husband's truck. While I was out I thought about the groceries that were laying in the back of my SUV and decided that on my way back home, I'd drop them off at a local ministry called 'With Love from Jesus.'

When I was within five miles of my house, it dawned on me that I'd forgotten to stop off at my friend's house to deliver the groceries that my small group gathered for her ministry on Sunday. My first thought was, "oh, I'll deliver those items tomorrow." Then another still small voice said, "you better take the groceries today since someone may need them." And so reluctantly, I turned my SUV around and headed back in the opposite direction.

Within fifteen minutes I had reached my destination. With Love from Jesus is a ministry that caters to the underprivileged and homeless in our area, so as soon as I pulled up on site, there were workers in the yard. They were busy going from this tent to that one sorting donations that had been received over the past few days. I casually stopped one of these young people and asked for assistance. They eagerly helped me tote the groceries to the building that holds these items.

Then I walked into the house to visit with my friend, Joy for a few minutes and wound up staying for dinner. One of her friends was there and she was having a rough time. She could barely walk and was certain that her hip was out of joint. This little woman was usually busying herself helping others on site at this ministry operation but on this day, she was hobbling on crutches.

She was so angry because she could not do the things that she normally could do. She was spitting and spueing...are you with me? Not in a bad way, you see, but she was deeply down and discouraged. After listening to her complaining saying, "I just don't understand, Ms. Frances. Why am I having to go through this? I am just getting back on my feet. Why is God doing this to me?" I calmly said to her, "Ms. Betty, the truth is that God cares more about your character than your comfort. He is allowing this setback to refine and mold you. So, focus on the encouraging things that are happening in your life and stop dwelling on circumstances that you cannot change."

Amazingly, by the time I left there, Ms. Betty was in much better spirits and I have to believe that God prodded me to turn around yesterday to deliver a message to one of His children. He does things like that you know. We just have to be obedient to that still small voice that gives us direction. I don't know which one of us was more blessed by this event--as we cried and prayed together. Thank you God for allowing me to be your hands, your feet and your mouthpiece...for such a time as this.

Blessings today!
