The idea for today’s post came from the article, “Nine Strangers Who Can Change Your Life” by Amy Shearn, on oprah.com. Some of the strangers she mentioned included, “The Beleaguered Woman Who Actually Wants to Watch Dances With Wolves,” who taught her the lesson, there is no excuse to be a jerk. And, “Your Friend’s Wretched Boss,” who teaches you never to be demeaning to people who work for you. And my personal favorite, “The Writer of the Right Words at the Right Time,” who was kind enough to share her story and her words find you at the exact moment when you needed it.
And I wonder, what would it be like to be a stranger who God uses to touch, even change another stranger’s life? I believe it is possible. Think of it. Psalm 37:23 tells us, “The LORD directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives” (NLT). I believe that it is okay to ask Him to use us to touch someone’s life in a meaningful way every day, for their good and His glory alone.
