Every day it seems that God opens the door for me to minister to someone. Sometimes it is a kid at school, sometimes it is a co-worker, and sometimes it is a friend or family member. Regardless of who it is, I have realized something about my work. I am not so much called to teach or drive people around with LYFT as I am called to encourage and direct them to God.
This morning I picked up a young lady named Jumoke. She was visibly shaken up when I arrived to give her a LYFT. I asked her if she was going to work, and she said, “No, I just had an accident!” I could see she was on the verge of tears. As we talked about it, I told her that the one good thing that came out of it is that she was not hurt. I know that is not a lot of consolation when you are in a wreck…but in the scheme of things…that is truly what matters.
She confessed that at times she just did not want to wake up because of all the bad things that had happened to her. Her family was in Nigeria and she apparently did not have a lot of friends to support her here. We talked about God for a while and how He is our friend, He is our protector, and He is our provider. She nodded in agreement with it all. She just had to be reminded of who God is and what He IS doing on our behalf…even when we can’t see it or feel it.
Before she got out of my car, I asked her if I could say a prayer for her. I prayed over her and assured her that God had sent me to be there for HER this morning. She may have been in an accident, but OUR meeting was no accident. It was a divine appointment from God…and I got to show God’s love in a miraculous way to her.
When she got out and I closed out the LYFT tab, can you get how much I made? $6.66! No kidding. It just reminded me that spiritual warfare is real and we have to put on the whole armor of God every day. Nonetheless, I was relieved when I got my second LYFT and got paid so I was not on THAT number anymore. LOL.
I pray for divine appointments and get them all the time. I just never know who, where, or when they will be. I just have to be available and let God do His thing through me. It is a pretty cool way to live and it is amazing to see what God can to through us if we just give Him the reins.
