'Dear Lord, here is a man I believe is in desperate need of Your help! Please g-give me the wo...rds if You in...deed would like to speak to him through me,' Sam prayed; stuttering and stammering, even in his head. He went back to his seat to help relax his quivering limbs. He closed his eyes, took some deep breaths and focused on what God was telling him to do.
To make a long story short; Sam's cooperation with The Holy Spirit DID lead him to speak to the scary stranger and after talking to the man; Sam learned that the man lived a very sad and lonely life. His parents went to prison many years ago; responsible for the scars on his face and NO ONE EVER told him about God. Sam helped the man by telling him stories about his own experiences with God and led him to accept Jesus as his savior and the scary stranger gave his life to the Lord that very afternoon!
Sam smiled; grateful for his understanding of The Holy Spirit's teachings. He learned there are no predetermined speeches necessary, just a willingness to meet people exactly where they are and that THAT'S all he needs to do.
Furthermore, he learned that God will give him the most perfect words to say and let him know whether or not it's appropriate to say anything in the first place.
And later, as the train pulled into the station and they were still saying their fair wells; Sam noticed to his great surprise, that the tall, scary stranger, wasn't nearly as tall or as scary as he had originally thought......hmmmm..... interesting....
