A Heartwarming Six-Minute Car Ride

Hi, this post is different from the usual but it's special. I experienced an overwhelming sense of comfort during a recent car ride, and I want to share it with you.

Normally, I'm the type of person who constantly has on headphones in transit, but on this particular day, I chose to remain unplugged. It was a Sunday morning, and I found myself running late, ultimately missing the bus. However, my determination to attend church was unwavering, so I decided to request a ride to my nearest train station. Little did I know that this decision would lead to a soothing journey.

My driver (probably in his late 40s) started a conversation with me about the importance of living a life of gratitude and how important it is to be grateful for the million little miracles.

He shared with me the years he had spent in his current profession and his aspirations to transition into cybersecurity. However, he expressed his frustrations, feeling stuck and doubting his ability to make the switch successfully. I offered words of encouragement, and he inquired whether I had any connections in the tech industry who might be willing to provide guidance. (On a side note: If you or anyone you know is interested in offering assistance, please don't hesitate to reach out to me.)

His desire to make this significant career pivot was truly inspiring and served as a powerful reminder that every individual's journey is unique and God (El Roi) sees us. While I may have offered him some encouragement, it was he who left me deeply inspired. Our conversation evolved into discussing the importance of leaning on God to direct our paths in life-changing decisions. In those few precious minutes, I found profound comfort in the presence of a stranger who, in the eyes of faith, was not a stranger at all, but rather a fellow sibling in Christ.

What struck me as particularly meaningful was that this encounter felt like an answer to a recent prayer, expressing my longing for His comfort. At that moment, it felt as though God had reached out to embrace me through this encounter.

Reflecting on it all, I couldn't help but believe that missing the bus was not a mere coincidence. For this, I am immensely grateful.

He has a way of speaking to us whenever He wants to, through whatever means He chooses to. We just need to listen and understand his loving messages to us. #IntentionalGod
