Shortly before dawn he went out to them, walking on the lake. He was about to
pass by them” (Mark 6:48)
Recently, I was doing some work at a local coffee shop, and I was trying to be
sensitive to not let the work of the Holy Spirit pass me by. Sometimes, I remind
myself that God (the Holy Spirit) resides within me, and He knows the plans for
my life. The Holy Spirit also expects me to follow Him. This day, a young man
walked by me, and I greeted him. In the middle of my conversation with him, I
felt that I needed to encourage him, and this happened by speaking words of life
into him. When speaking, one could see him brighten up. Almost like a little flicker
of a flame being re-ignited, I began to sense hope rising up in him. You see, this
young man finished high school about two years ago and today, he has no direction.
He comes from a family of 7 and has no relationship with his father. I told him that
I would be more than happy to talk with him at any time.
