My lost brother is found!

Awesome day today. The Spirit of God was flowing and moving upon hearts.

I was preaching on the corner, and all of a sudden my brother in our lord who I haven’t seen in 6 month’s, shows up. Praise Him! I have been very concerned about him. His phone was shut off. I tried to locate him at a local college on a couple of occasions. All to no avail.

I remember one time I showed up at his school with real anticipation in hopes of finding him. It took me about 50 yards into the school grounds to realize that it was spring break. My face dropped. Then I heard the Lord say through His Spirit, “you know you can use this time to pray for him”. So I walked the campus and prayed for him.

I have been concerned for him because the last time I had seen him he was discouraged. He had come to one of our Tuesday gatherings at the mall. I knew that he was taking on a big school load also.

So today we caught up. I bought him lunch and we spent two hours conversing together. He is struggling, but knows what he needs to do. It was a good time of encouragement, listening and praying.

God is so good! He is truly capable to cause people to come together for His plan and purpose. After all, He is all about people, right?

    Hey, brother,

    It is a very good thing to have others praying for us, especially those times when we don’t know about it. That makes it special because that is when God is including a brother or sister in watching over us. God bless you and keep you safe in all your rounds, Richard. You encourage me more than you know.

    Grace and Peace!

    Prodigal Knot,
    Yes, prayer is key!
    Thanks, glad you are encouraged.
    You also encourage me, more than you know!
    May the God of all grace, bless and keep you!
