"Tell Him I Love Him"
Sitting in the lobby waiting for the One Day tour Bus to arrive, I couldn't concentrate on my book. I kept glancing at the nearby snack counter wondering whether I should get something to eat.
Suddenly, I sensed the Lord speaking to me. "Telephone Steve tell him I love him," said the Lord.
I thought, "Oh! Lord I really don't want to miss my bus. Besides Steve knows that you love him."
I could perceive the Lord waiting patiently I tried to think of any good reason to refuse I gave in.
As I stood in line, I was surprised when no one came up Behind me.
"If the bus should arrive," I said to the counter attendant. "Please page me My name is Ann."
The lady behind the counter appeared to be fifty-ish and very friendly. She had a beautiful smile. "Ann I will page you when the bus comes," said the counter attendant.
"Oh! thank you very much," I said.
Approaching the pay-phone. I put thirty-five cents in. The phone began ringing Steve finally answered.
"Hello," said Steve.
"Hey! Steve," I said.
"How are you Ann?" said Steve.
"I'm ok! Steve. Do you have a moment?"
"Yes," said Steve.
"God wanted me to tell you that he loves you And has a wonderful plan for your life."
For a second it was a brief moment of silence. He whispered through a choked voice.
"You don't know how much I needed to hear that. My business has been at a standstill for the last three months. And I've been feeling like God doesn't care."
"Steve don't continue," I said. "I feel your pain. Let's share a prayer."
"That's a excellent ideal," said Steve.
"Prayer is surely always the answer," I said. "Let's pray. Father God in-the-name of Jesus...help my friend Steve. Give him a sense of re-newed hope! Lord let your word be mainefested with power and assured faith that, with you all things are possible...Amen
"Thanks Ann, for a great prayer. Have a amazing day."
"Steve you have a amazing day as well." I hung up the telephone. The overhead pager announced, "Ann will you please prepare to board your bus," said the counter attendant.
"What a overwhelming feeling of joy," I said. "I had obeyed God and it helped my friend Steve.
"I now incorporate in my prayers use me Lord as a instrument, to help others.
