(Or, Did Jesus Have Something Else in Mind All Along?)
"Oh no! No, no, no, no..." Lord, what did I do with my lesson? First my phone, now this. Pleeease help me...
"No, it’s Kayla. Hi, I had to borrow my mom’s phone."
"I lost it; that's why I'm calling. I wondered if you found it and my Sunday School lesson plan in your car?”
“Are you sure? No, that’s okay."
"Yeah, the only other person I was with was Niki. She came by after you left.”
“I know. I’m almost afraid to call her. She’s probably gonna blast me all to you-know-where if she finds those papers and sees what they're about. She hates it if I even mention the word ‘Bible’."
"Just one of those things, I guess. I was studying the lesson yesterday, and I must have been in such a hurry when she came by that I just grabbed them when I picked up my phone and stuck them both in the side pocket of my purse.”
“Um, I don’t know; I’ll think of something.”
“Yes, I am gonna need a lot of prayer."
"Thanks, you’re the best.”
Lord, what am I gonna do? You know how Niki is violently against anything Christian right now. Could I just call Mrs. Clark? I’m sure she saved a copy of the lesson ideas I sent her. She could have it to me in a sec’...No, it’ll take too long; she could just bring it. She’d...Ohhhh, I know You want me to call Niki, don’t You? Oh man, I really, really, need Your help.
"No, it’s Kayla.”
“Long story. I was just wondering...well, remember when we went shopping yesterday? I, um, I think some things may have accidentally dropped out of my purse when I was in your car.”
“Front seat. Probably fell before I got out.”
“Um, my phone and some...papers."
"No, they're more the size of a small Bi...uh, book--small book.”
“Did you find them? Nik? Niki?”
Lord, please, I’ve worked so hard to become her friend. I don’t want this to turn her away before I can really witness to her. I was just waiting for the right time...
“Hi, Mom. I’m so glad you’re still there. Would you look up Mrs. Clark's number for me? I need her to bring a copy of my lesson plan to class. No, wait; hang on...I've got another call."
“Niki, what happened? Why did you...?”
“You read everything?”
“Yes, I do believe it, and actually, I can prove He’s the Son of God.”
“Fair enough. But, if you come to Sunday School with me, I could explain it even better. It’s what we’ve been studying."
"No, they’re all our age, and I think you’d really like it. Starts in fifteen minutes, so we’ll just have time."
"You know where the...? Sure, I’m all ready to go.”
Yes! Thank You, Lord! Thank You, thank You, thank You...I know this was all Your doing. You are sooo faithful...
“Hi, Mom. Sorry ‘bout that. Niki’s picking me up for Sunday School, so you don’t have to.”
“Yes, that Niki. She has my phone and lesson plan. I’ll explain later. I'd like to invite her over sometime...”
"For lunch? Great! See ya after church. Oh, and, Mom? Thanks for letting me borrow your cell phone."
