The way our online morning began and ended with my number 22 it could so easily have turned out differently.
Upon reflection, I could have followed up on Veronika’s posting on Biden as soon as I got to my desk. After all, the screenshots were already in-hand and I simply had to pop them into a post with some text and hit ‘publish’. BUT no, I got on with a follow-up to last night’s item on the ‘scam-demic’ ONLY to find that four hours later my timing had been organised for finding a news item at 22nd minute of 12th hour of the 12th day of this new year – as though the Lord was fitting a piece into His Invisible Jigsaw.
SO, this personal account is offered simply for encouragement, edification and blessing.
Very soon afterwards Nina returned from meeting a friend for coffee. I went to greet her and she began telling me about her travelling troubles, BUT then the Holy Spirit touched her, thereby proving He was in it all.
When ready, she began to tell how this morning’s reading about ‘road’ and ‘map’ got directly applied to the actual details of her outing:
I’d noticed she’d set off earlier than usual, allowing 45 minutes for a 20 minute journey of 10 miles. It was well to have done so because she encountered SIX lots of roadworks and one long diversion. She arrived with one minute to spare but it took 4 coffee shops before the friends found a table free. Whilst talking they naturally ignore their phones – but knew they each (ie. 2×2) had to take sequential calls requesting urgent prayer help.
Later, upon visiting a library the librarian told Nina she feels strongly something BIG is going on, so they both (2×2) prayed as her manager went to early lunch. Again, a double lot of two witnesses!
CONCLUSION – this must be a day the Lord is stressing that we walk closely with Him on our individual journeys, as shown above. (This image has a link for info only.)
