I don’t normally look at my stats, but lately I’ve become more curious as to where people that do visit

this page live. Granted I have only a few followers, but I am amazed at the power of the internet. There are those that come from just about every major country in the world that view what I write.

I don’t take anyone that does look at this old man’s writings for granted. I only write by inspiration most of the time and when I don’t write it’s because I don’t hear anything of value to write. I will say sometimes my writings are a shade cloudy from the attitude that I have at the moment so the thoughts may come out a bit off, but there is a hidden meaning in there somewhere.

My previous post about being ready to minister the Word when we are out and about should be of value and I didn’t want to “expound” on it. All I did was say it and leave it there. Be there and be ready when the moment comes is a precise thing for God.

The woman I ministered to in the parking lot at the Piggly Wiggly grocery store was having a really bad day. She had left her home for work. She teaches in a setting with children ages 3-6 years old. She could not do that with the frame of mind she was in at that moment. So God in His infinite wisdom had me to go get breakfast for my wife and sister-in-law. I learned from the meeting as well as the woman was ministered to.

My learning is that I am now much more in tune with God that at any other time in my life. It’s my realization of that that gives me a gained confidence that I am able. I became the vessel through which God poured His favor upon this woman. I wasn’t the answer. I was the conduit. God was the answer.

This woman received what she needed for the moment. She commented she thought I was her dad and was avoiding her. She stated he was in fact avoiding her lately and that in itself is hurtful. To add to that her mother-in-law was found unresponsive in her home the prior day and was in the ICU at the hospital expecting her to not regain conscousness. She is not expected to live. I have not idea of what else she might be experiencing, but to see the turmoil her mind was in tells me she is dealing with more that just those two things.

God doesn’t have to tell me the details. I don’t have an itch to know. All I need to know is that I delivered the Word to her this morning and that He activated those Words in her spirit. All I told her was that peace and comfort are her portion. All she has to do is receive it. I believe she did.

When you are out each day all you have to do is be aware of those that are placed before you. Be ready or to paraphrase it “instant in season and out of season”. You may feel nothing directly, but you will as soon as the moment arrives. Do you tune your spirit to activate or be sensitive to what God is doing? Do you surrender yourself to be and do as God leads?

You are a statistic by WordPress’s viewing my page, but the most valuable statistic is do you respond to those in need? If one of you practices this valuable ministry, your reward in heaven grows.
