God is using me to reach the lost, desperate and hurting?



Matthew 11:28 (NKJV) "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."
               
          Last month while packing my belongings, I began to experience feelings of sorrow and loss. I wondered, "Why would God lead me from our closest friends and church home?" God immediately answered me. First, during a phone call from my husband he shared that someone within his work circle had committed suicide. Immediately, my heart began to ache as I prayed for the those family members left behind. 
         Later, with the suicide still on my mind, I drove to the local grocery store to pick up a few groceries. Just as I started to leave, a woman stopped me. She said, "Donna? I just wanted to tell you that you made a difference in my life. When you shared your story with me 3 years ago, I was feeling hopeless. But then, I found my way back to God. I just wanted to tell you that." I sobbed as I hugged the woman. Through many tears, I thanked the woman for allowing God to confirm His will through her beautiful words. 
        After I gathered my composure, I walked to my car. I knew just why God was leading me away from my beloved town and church. As a result, I hung my head and prayed.  "Abba Father, you have chosen me to be an instrument in reaching others with Your Word and the hope I have found in You. Thank You for providing the words that bring help and hope to the brokenhearted and direction to the confused. I understand now why I must leave this wonderful town. Someone else out there needs You too! I look forward to reaching them in the moment they need You the most. Thank You for Your perfect Son, in whose name I pray. Amen."
