Out of the Blue

Two days ago, Kathy's name popped into my head. I didn’t question it or overthink it--I just acted on the impulse.


The last time Kathy and I spoke, she shared with me that she had decided to go to work with her husband. The fact that her name came to mind "out of the blue" made me want to follow up with her and encourage her in that decision by letting her know I believed she'd chosen well.


Has someone come to mind this week? To me, those are prompts, quiet nudges, to call, text, send a card, or drop off a plate of brownies. What may seem like an insignificant act in the moment could be what God uses to impact someone’s day.


When Kathy texted me back, thanking me and sharing that it was just what she needed to hear.

God had used me to send her a message. 

Huh.


I find it amazing that God chose to use a middle(wo)man when He could've told her Himself. Could it be He had two messages to deliver that day?

I'd love to hear about a time when you responded to a prompting. Just click on the pencil or on the word "comments" below.
