I have been thinking about how our friends, strangers, family, even ourselves can be the hands and feet of God. I checked my mail yesterday and among the usual advertisements and bills was a letter from a dear friend. I love letters!
Definitely the best part of checking the mail. Then, I received a few emails from people just checking in. As meaningful as it was to receive each of those thoughtful gestures, I was so aware that the author of those emails and letters was God and my friends were the hands that he used to write them. They couldn't have known all that has been going on in our lives the last few weeks. I was so overcome by awareness of His love, and desire to bless me. There wasn't anything particularly special about yesterday, but then He made it special. When I went to bed, I was laying there and someone came to my thoughts that I hadn't heard from in a little while.
So I thought, it isn't too late, I'll text them while I'm thinking about them! Turns out, they were in the middle of crying out to God with a heavy heart and feeling sort of alone. Boom. Insert my simple text message that shatters the lie of the enemy to prove they are NOT alone.
How great is our Father?! It didn't occur to me at the conception of my thought for that person that it was anything but a thought. But that is anything but the truth. I know now that it was the Holy Spirit who brought that person to mind, because God loves us so much, and he WANTS us to know it! I am just so amazed by my Fathers love. So thankful for all of our friends and family who are the hands and feet of Christ.
Happy February! I'll leave you with a picture that reminds me spring is just around the corner! :D
