Unexpected…

Prayer is not to be taken lightly, because God just may give you what you ask.

Acts 3: 4-6 Peter looked directly at him, as did John. “Look at us!” said Peter. So the man gave them his attention, expecting to receive something from them. But Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, get up and walk!”

I don’t think the rules of “pray for one” were explained to me correctly. The way I saw it I was to ask for God to show me someone I could share the love of Jesus with and help THEM right?
.
You know, save the world n stuff..
.
I did not expect my “one” to heal me…
.
Quite frankly I didn’t know that I was broken(but I was).
.
I won’t name names but this individual and I had a severe falling out several years ago and that is putting it mildly, it was bad enough that the police were called in. Well this person turned back up recently and sought to work for me again but not after one of the most honest and sincere heartfelt apologies, we talked of poor choices made, becoming lost and the slow path to recovery,
.
You know, if you ask God to show you someone don’t think He won’t take you up on your offer if He finds the spirit willing.
.
What was I to do?
.
.
The only thing I COULD do, I showed this person the love of Christ and forgave, after all it was what I ASKED for.
.
Long story short This person now works for me again but you know what really blows my mind?
.
I was witness to two people getting up and walking that day…
.
He by being released from the chains of regret,
.
And I from the chains of anger and resentment.
.
If you’ve got chains He’s a chain breaker..
