I would describe myself as a socially awkward person. I do my best, but I even turn red meeting people I know sometimes. Sadly, I don't like it, but I can't help it. But the Lord Jesus came on the scene for me.
I was attending a seminar in January for my job. I was in a crowded room, full of people, standing in a line. A woman I'm acquainted with came passing by me, so I smiled and said hello. Immediately after she greeted me, she looked and said, "What is going on with your face?" You see, I had the biggest case of lying vanities that day. All I could say was, "I know God has healed me." She ignored that. "Is it Rosacea?" I said, "I don't know…but..." She cut in, "Are you going to see a dermatologist?"
Each time I would start to say something about the Lord, she would just run over top of me with questions. Then something happened. It wasn't me, it was the Lord Jesus. I said, "I went to the Great Physician." She must have not heard or ignored the "great" part because she was very interested then. "Oh and what did he say?" I said, "By His stripes I am healed!" The strangest look passed over her face, she patted my arm and walked away.
Praise God, dear brothers and sisters, that wasn't me. He came on the scene for me and gave me that final punch! (I pray for that dear woman - she just doesn’t know what I have!)
Later, I passed her and her friend in the lunch line. They gave a weird glance at me and at each other, and turned their backs. But you know what, I was happy all day long! I didn't cower or duck my head all day. Normally the devil would have beat on me, saying, "See, see. everyone's sees what you have." But not that day.
I Am a Royal Seed of Abraham, by His Grace, fainting not at the promise of God. To Him be all honour and glory.
