I had two students recently who said things to me that got me to thinking.
The first….a female student came up to me and asked me to pray for her dad. In all my 18 years of teaching…that was a first. I was happy to do it. She doesn’t live in my town, nor does she go to my church. I have not sit down with her and told her of my beliefs…I am not permitted UNLESS they ask. She did not have to ask. She simle ask me to pray. Is that because she sees God in me!!!! That made God smile!!
The second…a male student said to me this week. “Do you believe in ghosts?” I was still thinking about the first conversation, which had happened on the same day. I replied to him…”I believe in angels. Just because you can see something doesn’t mean it is NOT there.”
My words rang loud in my own ears. Just because you don’t see God doesn’t mean he is not there! MY GOD IS NEAR ME ALL THE TIME!
