Your God Story
“Hey, do you want to hear a God story?” my friend Jamie said before we wrapped up our phone call the other day.
“Sure,” I said, taking a minute to listen.
Jamie went on to tell me that a friend visited her that day who needed some help.
Her friend was looking for some used clothes for her son and asked Jamie if she knew of anyone who might have some to pass down. While she was speaking, Jamie’s phone started beeping, signaling that she was getting a call.
Jamie politely let the call go to voice mail and focused on her friend. And later after she had left, Jamie checked her message.

I love God stories and I agree that it is hard to get people to share. I think that part of the problem is that we try to control our day. I find that He shows up in a big way when I ask God to take control of my day, move out of His way and PAY ATTENTION to the little things. For example saying "Have a blessed day" to the cashier when you are done checking out gets a different reaction than "Have a nice day" ... or going out of your way to hold the door for someone ... or if you really want to shock a waiter/waitress ask them if there is anything you can pray for them about - you would be surprised to find that 9 out of 10 times they will tell you a prayer need that you can pray for when you say the blessing when he/she brings your food (another shocker for those sitting at the table next to you). In order to have God stories, you have to pay attention to the opportunities He gives you and act on them. My favorite definition is "coincidence is God's way of staying anonymous" - think about it and train yourself to live it. If anyone has a God story, there is a facebook page called "God Speak" we just put it up so that people can share their God stories. (Deb, hope you don't mind the plug for the page). BTW...have a BLESSED day everyone!
