Over these next four blogs, I hope to share my experience meeting five extraordinary ladies a week ago. I met each at a different venue: a Unity service, the shoe department of a major retail store, two different concerts, and the bathroom of a restaurant. What I found extraordinary about these ladies is as ordinary ladies they were extraordinary in holding fast to their faith and hope, refusing to yield to depression and despondency
Having checked in the hotel late Thursday, my two traveling friends and I arrived at a Unity service late and sat near the back. The lady I sat next to had a warm and beautiful spirit. We soon started a conversation when we could during the service. She shared she had been going through a “struggle” but felt she was beginning to come through it. At one point, she said she could not believe she was telling me some of these things. After sharing with her words of encouragement and affirmation and after hearing a dynamic message from Pastor Kim Burrell, we were fully persuaded God had purposed our meeting; and though there were tears, they were tears of confidence of an expected victory over the struggle. We parted with a warm hug and a deeper appreciation of God leading us to that place at that time to reassure His peace in time of struggles.
Affirmation: God always has many ways to "talk" to us during our struggles. Sometime it may be through another person. Be prepared to be that person.
