[Risks No. 178-179] I made small-talk with Walita at the cash register when I noticed a man behind me. He placed his goods on the register shelf. I greeted him and he responded. I asked Walita how I could pray for her. She seemed stumped. I felt it made sense to hold both of their hands – three strangers praying – and I asked Jesus to continue the good work He had begun. I blessed them and they smiled back.
Learning to heed (and hear) the Holy Spirit is as much about doing things as it is in saying things. Holding doors open, picking up something that someone has dropped, leaving a generous tip, grabbing two strangers hands and praying. I’m learning that there is a grace to follow what God the Spirit is prompting.
