We went grocery shopping this morning, and Billy prayed for a divine appointment like he usually does before we go out. He was wearing his witnessing t-shirt that says this on the front…
and this on the back…
As we were leaving the grocery store two workers by customer service were staring at his shirt, and they said we’re trying to read your shirt. So he walked closer, straightened out his shirt so they could read what it said, and then he read it to them. And he turned around and let them read the back too.
Billy asked me to give them my little Bible booklets, but as I reached into my purse I saw that all I had left were the ones in Spanish. 🤦♀️ One of the ladies spoke Spanish so she took one of those. I asked if they wanted the English booklets, and they said yes, so I went to the car to get them.
When I returned I learned that one of the ladies, a young woman, was a Christian, so I asked about her testimony. She said her dad was a believer, and although she knew about salvation she wasn’t saved yet. She knew that if she walked with the Lord she would have to part with her current boyfriend and friends, and she didn’t want to do that. But then the Lord gave her three dreams. It was the last dream that caused her to surrender to the Lord.
In the third and last dream she and her worldly friends were in a vehicle, I think it was a bus. It was tipped over and her friends were falling out of the window into hell, and she was there with them hanging on ready to drop off too. That did it for her. She said she was so grateful to the Lord, because He could have just let her live her life unsaved and then end up in hell, but the Lord didn’t do that.
After she was saved she tried to get one of her unsaved friends to go to church with her, but her friend wasn’t interested. She said the Lord was telling her you can’t force people to be saved. She has parted ways with her old friends, now to walk with the Lord in newness of life! Praise God!
2 Corinthians 6:14-15 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
1 Corinthians 15:33 Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.
As for the other worker, an older woman, she got a Bible booklet in English and in Spanish. and maybe even overheard some of our conversation. I was able to give a brief version of my salvation testimony, how someone gently but boldly witnessed to me regarding Roman Catholicism. Maybe she’ll ask some questions. Praise God for another witnessing opportunity and answered prayer!
