Hey guys its Hannah! I have another testimony for you to read. I really hope this helps you in your walk with Christ because Jesus is real. He is NOT dead and neither is his power or miracles.
Sooo! Over a month ago, I was at the Chick-fil-a in West Monroe and I was honestly just blessing people, seeing whom God could touch there. There was a woman who was leaving, and I could tell she was hurting on the inside. And so I felt impressed by the Lord that she feels like a failure; “let her know I’m proud of her and that’s she’s doing a great job with her kids.” So that’s when I decided to walk out when she and her kids were walking out and I said, “Maam, I just feel like the lord wants you to know you are doing a great job with your kids and that he is proud of you and loves you. Could I pray with you?” She was shocked I think and she said no for prayer but at least I could share that encouraging word with her. So a little while after I was just chillin’ with my dad outside of Chick-fil-a she came over and said “I just want you to know what you said really meant a lot to me. I needed to hear that.”
The Rest of this story came to my dad 3 weeks or so later…
Whit’s part… So I was helping out with a local church in West Monroe with a student retreat weekend recently. While serving as a bus driver for this event for the teens, I came to know the host homeowner of this event. He and I were visiting over the course of the evening. After a good while of our visiting, the father asks me… “Were you and your daughter at Chik-fil-a late one night about 3 weeks ago?” To this question I responded yes. This man proceeded to tell me that his daughter was the girlfriend to the son of the lady that Hannah shared the encouraging word to. It gets better. According to the host homeowner he said the lady shared with his wife that she was so taken back by what Hannah said that she had to go home and research who “those people were” that shared the encouraging word. Hannah had given the lady a ministry card with our name and webpage on it. The lady read that I had served at First West after visiting our webpage. She knew someone that worked at First West. So she contacted a friend of hers that serves at First West to make sure that we “The Bass Family” were legitimate or trustworthy people. According to the friend that works at First West she confirmed that we were good people.
Here is the reason the lady had a hard time just accepting that Hannah was impressed by the Lord. This mother that Hannah encouraged at Chik-fil-a lost her husband over 2 years ago. Ever since she lost her husband she has prayed continuously that the Lord would make her a good mother since she was raising her children without her husband. So when Hannah confirmed to her that the Lord impressed on Hannah’s heart to tell her that she was a good mother it really touched her deeply. The mom after hearing this word from Hannah wept as she drove home that night. The host homeowner’s wife was also moved by Hannah’s obedience to step out in faith when Hannah shared her personal word of encouragement with a total stranger. The wife of the host homeowner shared with her husband that she desired to have more boldness like Hannah. Then the host homeowner’s daughter that dates the son of the mother Hannah encouraged said this about Hannah. “Daddy, that girl is Hannah Bass. She hears from Heaven.” These words were very encouraging to hear because so often we step out in faith and never know whether we were able to bless the person or not. In this case the Lord blessed Hannah and I both to hear how the simple obedience of encouraging a mother really was an impression that came to Hannah from the Holy Spirit.
In His Service,
Hannah and Whit Bass
