I received a call today from someone at church asking me if we would bring food to church on Sunday for a member who has no food - and no money until her check comes in at the beginning of the month. Absolutely ---of course we'll contribute! Here's the part that annoys me....earlier this week, the Lord brought this person to my mind....in fact, told me that I should send a card to encourage her ---and maybe put some money in the card as well.
Did I do it? no.
Does it REALLY bug me that I wasn't obedient at a time when this woman really needed some encouragement? yes.
It's a missed blessing. What an awesome honor it would have been to have received that phone call today knowing that we had already reached out to someone in need. argh. I'm glad that the Lord is "on top of things" and is organizing this "food drive" so Elaine will have food for the rest of the month....still...kicking myself for not listening when He prompted me to do something. Moral of the story ---ALWAYS LISTEN TO THAT STILL SMALL VOICE.
Okay...gotta go raid the pantry and pack a box or two for Elaine.
