Making Each Day Count

Ephesians 5:15-17 (ESV)
15 "Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise,
16 "making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.
17 "Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is."
Testimony: While we were stranded in Louisiana last week we went to a Cracker Barrel for breakfast. Our waitress said that they had been closed for the last eight days because of the ice on the streets. She was really happy to be at work, and when she saw the name "Jesus" on my hat she began to share with us how she had found a rock-solid relationship with Jesus while being in prison.
She said that she had been a meth addict for over fifteen years but that she had been sober for two years now. It took her two hours just to get to her job that morning, but she was really happy to he there. After she gave us such a beautiful testimony we then shared with her that we were all prison ministers.
We all agreed that the odds of us being there together that morning were pretty much slim to none. We went on to tell her how much her testimony lifted us up and encouraged us to say the least. She then asked if there was anything that she could do for us, and I quickly responded with, "Yes, could you bless our food please."
She prayed one of the most powerful blessings over us and our food in the mighty name of Jesus that I have heard in a long time. The next day that restaurant was closed again, and we went on our way home, praise God. So the odds of our seeing her again are pretty slim wouldn't you say?
Thank You, Father, for the divine appointments that You have placed along the way as well as the ones that are coming our way. We look for wisdom on how to walk in Your ways and to make quality decisions to better understand what Your will is for our lives and to make each day count. In Jesus's name, Amen.
Blessings on the journey, and remember the best is yet to come.
