To start this blog out, I want to start with a story or what you might like to call an allegory:
“One day I was walking down the road and I came across an old, beaten up car. I asked myself, “Now, how did this happen?” I looked around for the owner but found no one. I went around to the other side of the car to find a person asleep on the ground. I felt that perhaps I should talk with the man to ask if he was okay, but didn’t want to wake him. I felt as if I should do something, but didn’t know what. I walked away, thinking he was fine, and I was just overthinking.
As the day went on, I couldn’t forget the man. I felt a stirring within me. I couldn’t get the man out of my head, so I decided to go back. When I got there the man was gone, but the old car remained, and I was back where I had started.”
There is one lesson I hope you can take away from this story: If the Lord has put on your heart to help someone, then do it! You may only get one opportunity. If the Lord is leading you to start a Bible study or to simply talk to someone, then don’t ignore it. Take the chance the Lord has given you. Don’t be afraid. He is with you and goes before you. He will give you the words to say and He will supply all your needs (Luke 12:11-12 and Philippians 4:19).
P.S. I know this is shorter than what I usually write, but it’s something small to think about.
This is a lesson we need to put into practice everyday. God always has an opportunity for us to be a light in the darkness. Even though we’re unaware of the result, He will work it out for good! If you trust in Him, then it can be a bit easier to obey because you know how He works things out. 😊
