God has blessed me with great medical care, and I have visiting nurses come and check on me as I’m rehabbing from some surgery. Each week I need to have lab work done to determine the proper mix of the antibiotics I’m taking. This week we couldn’t get my blood to draw, it was frustrating, so I asked the nurse to try again she tried, no luck – it appeared I was dehydrated, so I was sent to the local diagnostic lab to have it done.
I can’t drive yet so it was an inconvenience to have to ask a friend to take me – I know her life is already busy – thankfully she has a heart of gold and got me to the lab before they closed. The lab tech did the draw quickly, no problem at all. I was thankful.
As I was leaving I felt like I was supposed to give the lab tech some of the Scripture cards I make and give away. I had one set left in my purse, I went back into the lab to give her the cards. She was a bit overwhelmed, as she teared up she said how much she needed this right now … her live is so pressured, family, kids, school, work…it leaves her no time to focus on God. She just kept saying, ‘You have no idea how much I needed this!’
She was right, I had no idea, but her Father God knew – and He knew I had to get to the lab that day to encourage her with His Word. I’m convinced that is why my lab work couldn’t be done at home – God wanted to give His daughter in the lab some of His love.
We talked a few minutes, and I and my friend left almost giddy. To be used by God in such a tangible way was such a blessing to us! We both knew it was a divine appointment.
