It seems like a way of life, that opportunities always come when you are not ready. I want to share a testimony with you of when I was. A few days ago I picked up some tracks at church. They were entitled "IF WE NEVER MEET AGAIN”. I work in the hospital and it seems like about 10 times a night someone is asking for directions or help. These tracts seem to be so appropriate so I loaded my pockets up with some and went to work expecting and looking and praying for a possible opportunity. Around nine o'clock one of the visitors was talking to the receptionist and asked where she could find a cup of coffee. The receptionist directed her to the vending room and of course it was my opportunity. I told her I know where she could get free coffee so I had the opportunity Walk her up to the room and talk to her on the way and form some type of friendship. As she was getting her coffee, I introduced myself and said my name is Henry and I like to share God's love with people I have this little booklet here that seems so appropriate for the situation. Would you care to have a copy? She was delighted and she said to me “oh I wish the person that I was visiting had a meaning and purpose for his life like you do.” Thank you Lord. I said well maybe he will; here is a copy for him as well and I never saw her again. I haven't had as many great experiences as that one since, however I have experienced several opportunities that I have missed because I wasn't ready. Henry
