Today at my home church we had an outreach called the Holiday Speacialtea. This is an event where women in the church invite their friends that aren't believers. There s a delicious meal and hear a presentation of the gospel by one of the women from our church who shares her testimony.
Well, there is a certain woman that I have thought of for years--actually my last memory of her was when something happened and I got profoundly hurt in second grade. But I've thought about her a lot and always wondered what happened to her.
Well, I went out to check on water and punch for the guests and she recognized me. So we talked for a little bit.
And then I had to go back to my work area in the back and just spend some time in prayer because I wanted to be sure I wasn't holding onto any bitterness about what had happened back then and just wanted the Lord to know that I forgave her for something that she probably doesn't even remember.
And after I prayed, it was so cool because I went out and talked to her again...I wanted to be sure we left each other really well.
It was such a privilege that she came to our church and was there. And I can't help but think about how much God loves her and wants her to be in a personal relationship with Him.......
