Because we were thrust into a business that we didn’t create, the circle of people we meet has grown. Sometimes the Holy Spirit indicates their character; some people are good, some are not. Then there are those you meet, whether in business or church, that you know you love immediately. I had that encounter at church yesterday. I stay to myself most of the time because I’m a bit introverted, so I remain cautious and alert, but the Holy Spirit prodded me to approach a beautiful soul, and I’m so glad I listened to him. It’s the next day, and I’m still thinking about her! I don’t know if God plans for us to become friends, but her spirit speaks to mine, so whether we are friends outside of the church or if she has been placed in my life to admire from afar, I do not know, but what I do know is that she is my sister in Christ and that’s enough. God may have placed her in front of me to anchor me to this new church we are attending. We’ve been wondering about the vast desert of churches for many years now and need a place to call home. I hope this is it!
If you get nothing from this message today, know this, God has given you a sense about people; listen to it. He will show you their character before committing to them, which is a good thing.
How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.” The voice of your watchmen—they lift up their voice; together they sing for joy; for eye to eye they see the return of the LORD to Zion. Isaiah 52:7-8
