The company utilizing the temps required each employee to be teamed up with a temp. So here I am working next to this young man who was incredibly uneducated. As we worked and ate lunch together, we started sharing our lives. About two weeks into the project, we were having lunch outside one warm day at a picnic table, enjoying the view of the snow-capped mountains. He had asked me something regarding marriage; I was sharing how Kathe and I dealt with the issues. Out of the blue he blurted out that he had never known anyone who didn’t call their wife either the “old lady” or “the b----“. At first I was speechless. Then it seemed the Holy Spirit nudged me and I suddenly realized that here was an open door to share the reason why.
What I saw as failure in my introspection, God was busy redeeming to use to further His Kingdom. This was one of many experiences where I was learning to see the myriad opportunities that God was putting in front of me every single day. What an encouragement that He trusted me in what I thought was failure.
