A Thought: Follow Your Instinct. Yesterday was a day of blessing. I visited in the hospital a church member, as well as, a parent of a church member whom I had never met. I visited and prayed with them, and was extremely blessed by their gratitude for a simple visit and moment of prayer. My hope is they will improve and come home. As I was going to the CCU for one of those visits, I overheard a woman in distress talking to her brother about their gravely ill mother. The way she was responding to him made me know he was challenging her —probably a bit grumpy out of fear. After I left CCU, the woman was still on the phone but was in great despair. I stopped, told her who I was, that I had overheard her heartache over her mother’s condition, and would she like prayer. She told her brother, “I’ve got to let you go—this lady wants to pray with me.”
I did, and was blessed. We spoke for a moment, and hugged. I’m praying still for Veronica and her mother, Annie—and the brother, too! So, when you see someone in distress, go with your heart to help. You will be so blessed. 2 Tim. 1:7 “For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline.”
