I received the jury summons in the mail and it got me a little stressed because of my current workload but thought about how God is the one that schedules my time so if this is where he wants me, so be it.
I went to a part of Brooklyn I wasn’t too familiar with, found the building, went through the scanning process…. cleared. Shuffled into the waiting room and sat down. Now before I go into this story I just have to mention I never really talked much when I was a kid, up until college or so I was pretty quiet. Kept to myself. My dad in fact purchased the “How to talk to anyone” audio CD set just to give you an idea of how quiet I really was (Oh if my dad could see me now!) So anyways…fast-forward…gave my life to the Lord, I have become quite the chatterbox (only God can do this!) So this woman sits down next to me and she mentions something about the Lord and immediately I interrupted her. Come to find out, she is a sister in Christ. For the next couple hours this 50+ women and we exchanged our testimonies, our trials, our struggles. She spoke about her Hebrews studies and I spoke about what I am learning in James. Come to find out…she is single. Loving the Lord. Strong and had this presence about her that you knew she was just happy with her life, serving Jesus. She gave me advice on being single, more specifically…never to settle, only the best for a child of God.
She goes onto tell me where she has traveled, the young women she ministers and how good the Lord has been to her and I did the same. It was such a great day. God knew I needed to hear encouraging words from an older sister in Christ who was single. I am amazed at who God puts in my path to teach me.
And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19
