Good Samaritian

12 02 2014

6304066_sThat Opportune time for the enemy turned into a very costly one for me and yet the dividends were beyond measure!

The story continues… (to read from the beginning go to the January 29th post in this blog.)

As I got to the corner about 10 minutes before my ride came I thought to myself this street is so busy, 6532897_sLord I can just walk up to the light and cross and then walk to the bus stop where my ride will be waiting.

I heard the Lord say, “just stand there and cross the four lanes of traffic when it is safe.” But knowing I had more than enough time, I turned to walk to the light. Two steps in the pavement was uneven and you guessed it, I took a nasty tumble ending up on my left side as my purse went flying.

As I laid there for what felt like minutes assessing the damage to my body, while thinking of the story of the Good Samaritan as the cars whizzed by.

Bruised but not broken, by the grace of God I got up. I stood for another moment and then got my purse making sure I hadn’t lost anything. When I stood once again the gentleness of the Lord encouraged me, “just to stand, relax and regroup”. About a minute later as I looked in amazement, not a single car was in sight so I walked gingerly across the street.

Standing there as I brushed myself off, I hoped I didn’t miss my ride!
