Frustration to Fruitfulness

May 10, 2016

Frustration!! Tom waiting, waiting and waiting for discharge from the hospital. A special doctor had to be called and he was not there. 

Previously Tom and Carolyn gave one of the nurses named Judy a copy of the booth they authored “101 Salvation Stories.” She was a special nurse who really cared for her patients. She stopped in to see Tom in the morning to tell him that she was halfway through the book already and intended to read the rest on her day off.

Time for a shift change in the evening and that doctor had still not come. Judy came into the room to say goodbye to Tom and Carolyn because she would not see them again after his discharge. She said, “I want to be one of your stories. Can you save me?”

We know it is Jesus who does the saving but Tom held her hand and prayed with her. She accepted Jesus and was so happy. What joy on the face of that young woman. “Now I am one of your stories,” she said.

She walked out of the room just as the doctor walked in. Miracles still happen and God’s timing is always right. We as Christian need to remember He has a plan and purpose and the Holy Spirit is never late.
