As some of you may know I'm coaching my son's tball team this fall. I started calling our players yesterday to let them know I was the coach and to inform them of our practice schedule. One of the main reasons I coach is because it allows me to do this with my son, but also I get a chance to meet families that I would normally never have a chance to know. My prayer is that God would always use these opportunities to allow for people who don't know Him to perhaps find him. I just want to be used to reflect God's love to people who may otherwise not know of it.
Yesterday as I am calling people I get a hold of a lady who's son is on my team. As we are talking about the practice schedule she informs me that she is not sure if they will be able to be there or not. She says that their 9 year old daughter has brain cancer and they are finding results out that day about whether or not the chemotherapy has been working. She starts to cry as she is telling me this. I immediately begin to share with her some of our history with Kaleb's medical problems and then I pray for her, the family, and her daughter. When we finally hung the phone up I just sat there in my chair perplexed. I realized that God happened to ordain this time and the opportunity for this family to be on our team. I'm amazed at how God works. My prayer is for this little girl Bishop to receive healing. I also pray that the family would come to know that God is there with them at all times, if they don't know this already. My prayer is that God would use this tball season as a divine appointment in both their lives and mine. Please pray for this family and sweet little girl. The results yesterday was that her tumor had grown by 20%.
What Divine Appointments have you had in your life? Is it possible that today is a day full of possibilities for divine appointments if we simply open our eyes and hearts?
