I want to share with you how God showed up a while ago, when I least expected it.
I was at class and had my hands full of books, my car keys, my cell phone, my bottle of water and as I sat behind the wheel, trying to put down all my stuff on the passenger seat, with my door still open, I saw a man standing right in the open door. Before I could think, he reached over me to the passenger seat and grabbed my cell phone.
For a moment I was in shock while I saw him running away. The next moment, the strangest thing happened… He stopped right in his tracks, turned around and came to my window. He apologetically presented the phone with both hands, saying, “Sorry, here’s your phone.”
I took the phone from him and I could see the shame on his face. With a shaking voice I whispered, “I belong to Jesus and you shall not steal my things and you need Jesus.” Again he apologized and walked away.
I wondered for hours about the whole incident. I can testify that Jesus is alive and with us always, wherever we are. My cell phone is just an earthly possession, but God cared enough to stop the man and bring it back to me. I wonder if the guy heard a voice from heaven or saw an angel that changed his mind.
This happened in day light and I just wanna say to the girls not to walk in the dark or in dangerous places, where you can be attacked. God can show up anywhere, but you still have the responsibility to be careful.
