A hand delivered love note from God…
I was going through airport security with one of the IWM team members, JoAnn Auger, when I noticed someone waving at us. I looked but could not recognize the face due to the mask. I leaned in for a closer look and then mentioned to JoAnn that someone was waving to us.
The woman quickly pulled her mask down so we could recognize her. It was a dear friend from Hawaii, Dara Campbell! I met her in California five years back when I did a women’s event in San Diego. What were the chances of running into her at the very tiny Charlottesville airport???
As we came through security to get to our gate we hugged and talked with one another. Dara said it was so strange to run into us because she said she had it on her heart to give a donation to IWM. She explained she had read one of our recent updates and knew she had to make an investment. She said her cousin was at John 3:17 ministries, a ministry that helps women overcome addictions. We explained to her that we were literally flying to Little Rock that very day to go to John 3:17! She was amazed (and so were we) at how God caused our paths to intersect.
Right there she gave to IWM and then she gave me a written prayer to take to her cousin. I knew I was on a mission from God at that moment. There was a great struggle to get to that day (not surprised that the enemy tried to defeat me before I would arrive) but I pushed through and kept my commitment.
I would be the first to speak the day we arrived at John 3:17. I opened in prayer and told the women that before anything else happened, I had an assignment from God. I asked for Dara’s cousin by name. (name intentionally left out for privacy) I explained how the Lord brought Dara into the tiny little Charlottesville airport just so I could hand deliver a love note from God to her. You could hear a pin drop and then sobs…many tears flowed as God used the written prayer and message to encourage this woman to continue her healing process.
My message was “What is Freedom?” I used Hebrews 12 as my text.
1. Freedom is Weightlessness (Hebrews 12:1)
2. Freedom is Fixing our eyes on Jesus (Hebrews 12:2)
3. Freedom is coming under the Lords Discipline (Hebrews 12:5-13)
4. Freedom is receiving THE UNSHAKABLE KINGDOM (Hebrews 12:25-29)
As I was sharing one woman raised her hand and said she had shared Hebrews 11 and 12 with Dara’s cousin that morning! How awesome is our Lord? He caused me to change directions in my message just a couple days before leaving. He lined everything up and sealed it with scripture, just to show His love for this woman who needed to know He was with her. She shared that she was afraid for the future but God strengthened her heart with His personal action plan for her that day. All I can say is WOW GOD!
He never ceases to amaze me! He never overlooks anything. Nothing is too hard for HIM!
Wowed by God!
