What I didn’t know in April, when I signed up to do a product review, and the Spirit pushed me to click the “host a giveaway” box, was that the decision to obey the urging would be used powerfully.
What I didn’t know when I read my friend’s blog post, was that ten minutes later I would be ordering her flowers.
What I didn’t know is that, when those flowers came, a FedEx delivery man would pretend to be “driving a different truck” to play along with a little girl’s idea that deliveries came in brown trucks.
What I didn’t know when I ordered those flowers, is that a little girl with a rough life would run in and out of the room to look at them over and over again. I sent them to my friend–I had no idea they would please her foster daughter so.
What I didn’t know when I hosted a giveaway, was how it would impact that same little girl.
What I didn’t know when I prayed over the names in the hat, asking God to give the prize to someone who needed it, was that my friend’s name would be the one drawn.
What I didn’t know when I announced the winner, is that my friend never wins prizes.
What I didn’t know, was that the thing she ordered, would be read over and over to that little girl who really needed assurance about her God.
What I didn’t know was that those words of assurance would become important as a judge made a decision that impacts those little children’s lives.
All I did was follow the urging to host a giveaway. All I did was order flowers.
Amazing what God does with all that I didn’t know.
