Promptings

Bumping into…
Last week I ran into a colleague I had not seen for many months.  He mentioned he had been thinking about me.  We chatted for a bit and then the event we were both attending started up again, we parted ways saying we should get together.
Promptings
We should meet…
That happens a lot doesn’t it?  But many times, the getting together never materializes.

This time it did.  Something he said in our conversation about the Sunday school class he teaches, would not go away.  Doesn’t matter what.  It just stuck…  I am learning, slowly, that stuck thoughts about others may be, usually are, promptings by the Holy Spirit to do something…  So I did, this time.

Follow through…
I called my friend and asked if we could get coffee together.  Today we did.

My purpose was to hear more about what he was doing.  I spent the majority of the time listening and asking clarifying questions.  He is doing a significant work in his church.  Really significant.  But like most of us, he does not get much encouragement or reinforcement.

Daily Encouragement…
The time ended up being a time to do what Hebrews 3:13 commands.  I left encouraged that the Spirit kept after me to call him.  He left encouraged that someone was interested and appreciative of both what he was doing and the struggles that are part of that task.

Cleaning out my ears…
I am learning to listen more closely.  When someone comes to mind.  I am learning that is a call to action.  That action may be to pray, it may be to call.  I have to ask.  Then I have to act.
