Lost Phone Leads to Witnessing Opportunity

Ephesians 2:10 has always been a very comforting verse for me: 

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”  I believe that without a doubt God’s children, either knowingly or unknowingly, will move in those works because God has prepared them in advance.

Our Lord has confirmed this to me before, and never more so than just recently.  Some weeks ago after attending a women’s bible study, when it was time to leave I inadvertently picked up another lady’s cell phone and put it in my purse.

I found out I had it when following a loud intermittent sound (a pre-set alarm) that was originating from my purse revealed I had an extra cell phone in it!   I promptly called the owner then, and she arrived at our house within a short time as she was already in the vicinity.  I found out her phone had a GPS program on it!

As she spoke with my daughter ((a friend of hers through FBCRR) and me, she shared with us about some problems her family was experiencing.  As children of God we know that the best thing we can do when facing with any trials is to take them to our Father in prayer.  And that is what we did then. 

We joined in prayer asking our Lord to intervene in her situation and bring His peace and blessing to her family.   We all realized that our Lord had set up this providential meeting, and praised His Name for using what appeared to us initially to be an inconvenience something that He had prepared in advance for us to do.
