As I mentioned yesterday, a friend of his, came over later and spoke with me. She let me know that she felt she needed to read my book, probably even more than the fellow I danced with, did.
As J told me this, she began to cry.
I stood up, in the middle of this place, filled with people enjoying themselves and hugged J.
As we hugged, she began to tell me a little about her life. The more she spoke, the more she cried. From what she told me, it seemed her life felt to her like one big tragedy.
Then, I did something I never dreamed I would do, without the Lord's leading. After telling her I would pray for her, I began praying, right there in the bar area, just feet away from the Karaoke microphone.
J hugged me even tighter. As I prayed into her ear, the music was playing and someone was singing, but it felt like just the two (2) of us were there, alone.
I have no idea what people thought when they saw this; when they saw the two of us hugging in the middle of this restaurant/bar, where people usually go to drink alcohol and forget their problems. To me, it didn't matter what anyone thought, because I knew this was what God wanted me to do.
As I prayed, her sobs became louder and louder as she cried harder. Tears, mixed with eye makeup, ran down J's face throughout the whole prayer time. I'm surprised the music didn't stop, and someone come over to find out if she was okay.
After finishing up praying, I gave her the other copy of my book that I had on hand.
JB was blown away. He told me that never before had he ever witnessed anything like this. And, he commented to me that the young woman didn't have any idea what God was about to do in her life!
Oh yes, I just realized that you have not yet seen a pic of my friend JB. Here he is!
Here's JB, seated at Average Joe's!
Wow! Please stay with me. There is more to be said, yet.
Until next time...
