An Open Door

Updated: Jun 6

We had been traveling for hours. Hungry and tired, we stopped in Dexter, Missouri to eat lunch at a restaurant. Before leaving the car, I put in my purse Book 5: GOD STORIES And More ... Showers of Blessings. Gayle carried Book 7. We prayed, asking for the Lord's leading as to who He wanted to receive encouragement and a booklet.

Our waitress was swamped, serving multitudes of tables. Therefore, she hurriedly moved here and there, not stopping at our table long enough to engage in any conversation with her.

As she scurried by us as we left the table to leave, I asked where the restroom was. She hurriedly took me there and quickly left. I had felt she was the one to receive my booklet, but the opportunity hadn't opened. So, in the restroom stall, I quietly said, "Lord, I must have been wrong about our waitress being the one."

As I left my stall to wash my hands, my eyes opened wide with a huge, surprised look on my face. There she was washing her hands. It was so obvious that God had opened this door at His perfect timing with no one around to distract her. She listened intently to what I shared, took the booklet and thanked me. After Allison left the restroom, I praised the Lord for His leading, His timing and His future plans for her life, asking Him to change her life for His honor and glory. What an awesome God we serve!

"I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou

hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name." Revelation 3:8
