Encounters

I was originally hoping this would be part of Five Minute Friday, but I missed the link date…But, used the prompt anyway. Also linked up with this week’s Tuesday @ 10.

The prompts gleaned were: Favorite “I truly believe…”:

“The LORD your God is with you. He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you. He will quiet you with Love. He will rejoice over you with singing.” – Zephenia 3:17

The past two weeks I have been talking to my Sunday School class about encounters. Specifically – Biblical accounts of encountering God.

And, as I see the word “Favorite”, and the phrase “I truly believe”, I am again struck by now God continues to move.

Some of my favorite events in life are encounters (an un-expected meeting). Encounters with God and encounters with His people.

I truly believe that God still shows up for His people, and seeing Him at work this way is my absolute favorite.

Last Saturday, a brief encounter with a coworker who shared his faith story with me (including a story of his own encounter), bolstered me, and opened my heart to other encounters God set up throughout the week.

His brief story also prepped my heart for a God encounter Sunday morning. The kind I’ve been praying for, desiring, but not quite open to, for months.

You see, I believe God uses these encounters to remind us He hasn’t left. He is always with us. And, He desires us.

And, that, is my most favorite of all!
