"Just Happened"

I love Sundays because I love my church. I love my job. I have the awesome opportunity and privilege to serve as the Women's Minister at the most amazing church--The Church at BattleCreek. I could go on and on about my church and all that God is doing. But today, God "just happened" to use me to speak words of encouragement into a fairly new very dear friend of mine. She has alot going on in her life and is feeling a little overwhelmed. She said, "I can feel myself going under and I don't want to go there." She was desperate to hear "The right word at the right time is like a custom-made piece of jewelry." Proverbs 25:11 the Message I love that God has a specific word for each of us. And sometimes He has a specific word--custom made--that He wants us to pass along. I "just happened" to stop by where she "just happened" to be spending time all by herself. My friend is a believer but she needed to hear that God cares about her and her situation, and I "just happened" to get the privilege of letting Him do it through me. Imagine that, God using me to minister to someone outside the four walls of my church--and on a Sunday. I love when God does stuff like that. That is my lifelong prayer that I "just happen" to be about His business EveryDay.
