Giving Lacy Hope
What was just a normal walk home from praying at the mall, turned into a divine encounter with the love and mercy of Jesus.
When our team was walking home from ministering at the mall, we were stopped and asked for money. This was the second time this happened to us on our walk home, so it struck me as an odd coincidence and possibly a time where God was wanting to move. The woman who stopped us, I'll call her Lacy, was carrying groceries and had just run out of money at a nearby pay phone. None of us were carrying cash at the moment, but immediately 'Acts 3:6' popped into my mind. I could hear Holy Spirit prompting me to say to Lacy, “We don’t have money, but what we do have, we can give to you.” I asked Lacy if she needed prayer for anything and if there was anything we could do to practically help her out (besides give her money). She began crying and explaining her poor health and her life situation to us. I believe Holy Spirit really moved through us because she kept saying, “Wow, I’ve never met anyone like you guys. You are so kind. Thank you for taking the time to listen to me.”
