Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee…
Today I woke up on the grumpy side, but then I let God take over.
I prayed that he would lead me to five people who might need a phone call that day.
Right away, a name came to mind and I called. My friend needed to talk, and I listened as she explained her concerns about her son. Her heart was hurting and I was grateful I was able to spend some time with her to let her know I cared.
Next, I spoke to a few answering machines and just left a simple message, “Hi, I am thinking of you.”
Then, I reached a friend who I hadn’t talked to in months. We spent the conversation laughing together and it was so much fun.
It was the next name that came to my mind that made me hesitate a little. Don’t get me wrong…I like this woman, but I wondered if she would think I was strange for me to just call her out of the blue. I reminded myself that I had prayed for names to come to mind and that this was an answer to that prayer.
Then I picked up the phone and called.
She sounded surprised but happy when I told her that I had been thinking of her and wanted to say hello. We had a great conversation and became better friends.
I had so much fun seeking out my five friends that I kept praying to know who else might need a friendly hello that day.
Just focussing on being open to God’s little nudges made all the difference in my heart.
With His help, I moved from grumpy to grateful. I was amazed at the change that occurred inside of me in just a few hours.
