I didn’t want anything to do with God.
When my baby sister died tragically and unexpectedly, my entire world flipped upside down. What I once knew to be true suddenly became questionable.
Then one day I got a note from a friend. A girl I not-so-affectionately called my “Bible friend.” Honestly, she got on my nerves with all her Bible verse quoting. I didn’t want to believe God existed. And I certainly wasn’t reading the Bible.
But as I held her simple note with one Bible verse scribbled on the front, tears of honest need streamed down my cheeks. My stiff knees bent. I whispered, “Yes, God,” and it changed the course of my life. Her gentle persistence had reached me.
May we never doubt the power of one person reaching into the life of another with written whispers of love.
