When I left off in yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I mentioned about people I spoke with and prayed for, on occasion.
As I said, some people who dropped by the Chapters bookstore book-signing table I was located at, were Christian. Others, were not.
One woman came by. She asked me about my book. I explained to her about Love Never Fails You... www.lynniebooks.blogspot.com and then during our conversation, she looked at me and asked me a question.
She asked me if I honestly believed that love never fails us.
I answered without any thought, that indeed, I do believe that love never fails us. She again looked at me, laughed and walked away.
Then, there was a fellow who came by. He looked at my book and spoke with me.
This man definitely was not Christian. He began making fun of all Christians, claiming how stupid we were, for believing anything about God and especially, Jesus.
On and on he rambled. I could hardly get a word in, edgewise! However, every now and then, he would stop for a second to catch his breath. Then, I would comment.
As his negative remarks continued, I prayed for this fellow.
To my surprise, a couple of women came by the table. The motor-mouthed man, continued on for a moment. But, eventually, the women asked me a question. Then, the man stepped aside for the moment, and allowed me to speak with the women.
When he realized they both were Christian and were both purchasing my book, he walked away, grumbling to himself. In my mind, I thanked God for handling the situation for me!
My oh my, it truly takes all kinds to make a world. Believe me when I say, I prayed for him, and for all the others who made fun of me, my book and my Lord.
Of course, even though my friend A (who had come to sit with me for a while, as I mentioned the other day) and I prayed for some people that day, we both continued praying for them, in days to follow. Both individually, and when we met up again, a few days later.
The bottom line of all I have written about, is that truly God is love. And, Love Never Fails You... because God never fails you.
Of course, if you would like to read for yourself how God's love never fails, then you may want to read all of Psalm 136, but for the sake of time and space, I will only use verse 26, "Praise God in heaven! God’s love never fails."
Until next time...
