(This is a transcript of Molly’s story. She left this as a voicemail on our phone.)
The AT&T girl was at my house for like six hours one day. I was like, Oh my gosh, at the end–towards the end–I just thought, You know what Lord? I mean I want to encourage her. I don’t know anything about her and said, “Okay, Lord, what if I asked you. So I sat down and felt like he gave me a picture of her. I wasn’t super confident in the picture, but I just was like, “Okay Lord I know I need to share this with her but I do not want to. This is so embarrassing. I mean please.” I was like, begging him to not have to share this picture.
I ended up going in and just kind of making small talk with her and said, “Okay, I know this might be like, the craziest service call you’ve ever had. But I’ve just been practicing or just learning how to listen to the Lord, and I feel like maybe he might have told me something about you. And I just wanted to know if you’re open to hearing it. And she was like, “Well, yeah.” I ended up sharing that I saw her on a pair of skis going down a mountain, and she was cruising. She was like feet first, headstrong, skis completely parallel, down a steep mountain and she was flying. Like total chaos, out of control. Just going in one direction. And then I felt like somebody came up behind her, and just put his hand on her back and, and then just showed her, taught her, how to like, traverse the mountains. So now she’s like heeding his instruction and going side by side, side to side and in control, and it’s just kind of this beautiful picture of her in the mountains skiing. I told her this and she immediately burst into tears. And she goes, “I know exactly what that is.”
