Shortly before Christmas, a lady came in to Café Barnabas while I was working. She ordered her beverage of choice, I prepared it with love, and we chatted for a bit. Just before she left, she said, “How can I pray for you this Christmas?”
I was surprised. I explained to her that Christmas is a hard time for my family, as it is for many, and that I had been struggling. She took my hand, held it, and prayed over me. I began to tear up. She hugged me and said, “God bless you.”
After she left, I couldn’t help bursting into tears right there in the café. God knew exactly what I needed to get through the day. I am continually thankful for the reminder that though the days might not be great, He is still taking of me.
