This morning my heart is warmed and blessed. I have been communicating through Facebook with a woman that in all truth I barely know. I used to work in a retirement community where her father lived. I met her and of course, interacted with her regarding her father. I watched her minister to many of the residents and give her time to provide a weekly church service (for lack of a better description).
She was always cheerful and gracious. She loves the Lord, I love the Lord. Instant connection.
I lost touch with her eventually. I left and went to another job. Her father had to live in a nursing home in his last days.
But in the last while, I found her through Facebook - and another Spirit friend.
I have several Spirit friends - people God has placed in my life for a short while, usually through ministry or work. Not people I have gotten to spend a lot of time with or go to church with. I don't live in the same town, or even the same state with these ladies. I don't talk to them everyday. People who it is plain, the Holy Spirit in them reached out to Himself in me. If you have not experienced, I really don't know how to explain. They add to my life in an amazing way.
I am sorry to say, I have not experienced this with everyone in my own church body. There are some with whom I can never seem to connect at all - no connection - no matter how hard I try. Troubling. But that's another topic.
I love my Spirit friends. I can shoot them a prayer request - and know they will cover me in prayer. I can share just about anything. In fact, just saying hello, discussing problems in the world - warms my soul through and through.
Thank you, Spirit Friends. Thank You, Holy Spirit.
