Thought for the Day: Sharing your faith: Watch (and ask) for opportunities.
I always find it so interesting how God brings opportunities for me to share about Him (whether at times I want to or not!). He really does love to do this, sometimes at the strangest of times! That means I have to keep my eyes open so I can see the opportunities when they pop up.
I’m going to share two things to watch for, one today, the other Thursday:
Only He knows when someone’s heart is ready to hear about Him. So, if I sense Him nudging my spirit, I know it’s time to say something. For me, His nudges feel like the nervousness I’ve felt before a race or competition, and my heart beats faster. I know I need to say something. It can feel different for different people, though. Sometimes I’ll get that feeling with total strangers or people I’m having a totally different interaction with (think being treated by a physiotherapist!). I suddenly sense God wants me to tell them about what he’s done in my life and what he can do for them. Honestly, these opportunities can be kind of scary times for me, but I’ve seen God open up crazy doors of conversation! So, here’s my encouragement: LOOK for when God nudges, or better yet, PRAY for God to nudge you and watch how he does!
In His grip,
