A friend of mine was looking very tired last week, and I don’t know why these words came out of my mouth, but I offered to help with a presentation she was giving and had only just begun preparing. I had no reason to make the offer and looking back I still cannot understand why I did.
But the words came out of my mouth.
Of course she said no straight away, but that night something urgent came up and she had to actually take me up on that offer that I had already forgotten I’d made.
I was more than happy to help, and managed to get a little bit done on her behalf in preparation so that she wouldn’t be so stressed and could keep her mind focused on the urgent task at hand.
I can’t be much more specific than that, but we talked about it this week and it turns out that she was in a situation where she couldn’t be distracted at all, but thank God that he could use me to enable her to do what was necessary.
That I could play some part, reminded me of the bigger picture, and the reality of the situation.
