A PERFECT STRANGER August 19, 2015


“…They reel to and fro, and stagger, like a drunken man, and are at their wit’s end.  Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and He brings them out of their distresses.”  Psalms 107:27-28


A perfect stranger came into my life.

She didn’t know it,

But she was in strife.

As I struggled to get her keys out of the ignition,

I knew God had put me into perfect position.

I’ve been here before

With Satan knocking on my door.

But this day was different…

I had God on my side,

To fight the enemy with pride.

She fought me tooth and nail, and tried to break my spirit down.

She said hurtful, sinful things, punched, kicked and screamed.

I wondered why the police hadn’t come yet;

But it was because God wasn’t done yet!

I continued to hold her arms tight,

And she continued to put up a fight.

God was in the car that day,

And it was Him who used my tongue to say:

“You are better than this!”

“You are special!”

“Jesus loves you!”

As I said these words,

The enemy fled.

And all that was left,

Was a woman in need.

I caressed her hair and reminded her of God’s love;

I let her know, God sent me to her from above.

The police finally came and took her away.

So…what will you do or say,

When that perfect stranger, comes YOUR way?
