It didn't take long for God to answer my prayer below!
The Sunday after my prayer, I attended a birthday party with friends. I've waited years for the opportunity to share God's love with this particular group.
What do you know but the subject of faith just happened to come up and my God given moment was before me.
I'd like to say I opened my mouth and some spiritual gems just fell out and my friends listened on in amazement.
But the truth is, I started to sweat and breathe funny, my mind went blank and I wondered if I was going to blow it.
All I could think of was how real God is to me, how personal and sweet. A constant, ready help in times of need.
This one guy was doubting the validity of the Bible and I asked him "do you want to know how I know that God is real?" He eagerly responded, "please tell me, I'd love to believe."
I shared with him how God is a personal God who meets our individual and unique needs. I shared how my mother had just died of a brain tumor and with God's help she died with amazing peace and grace. Something that without Him would have been impossible.
I didn't get the guy's response as we were interrupted and the moment passed. Someone else could have responded so much better, but with me God works on a basic level and all I can do is share what He means to me.
I wish everyone could experience just a drop of His love. I promise if they'd only get a taste, they would never forget it or able to escape that kind of love.
