Empty seems to be my story lately. My mind bounces from one thing to another--retirement, family decisions, leadership thoughts, Operation Christmas Child concerns. In each case there are choices to make, things to decide...and I come up empty.
Today's message at church was a brief overview about the role of the Old Testament prophets and also a discussion about the role we have to speak God's words to others in our lives today.
After church I headed out the back door and struggled to get our nearly-empty Operation Christmas Child storage container open. In 2011, 2012, and 2013 it was at least 1/3 or more full by this time. Not this year, though.
I heaved open the door and stared into the emptiness.
Just then, a woman I've never met and don't know came out of that back church door and stood behind me looking over my shoulder. She said two words...
Maybe she is a prophet.
