I had the awesome honour today of giving one of my patient's a word in season. I'm a nurse for a family doctor, and last week as I was getting the vitals and other requirements needed for a young lady prior to seeing the doctor, I felt to tell her that she was beautiful. Well, I tossed this around in my mind and was a little worried of what she would think if I told her that. I didn't end up telling her and it bothered me the rest of the day.
Today she came in again. She was teary and looking for help in dealing with some stressors. After taking down all her information, I turned to her and told her that I was a Christian and that God wanted her to know that she was beautiful. She just started sobbing and said "Thank you". I told her that I agreed. Sometimes it's hard to obey God, but it sure does feel good when we do. We have to remember that God wants to use us to minister the love of God to others. We don't know what goes on in the lives of others but God the Father does.
God wants to use you to be His mouthpiece. There are hurting people all around you. Don't be afraid to give someone a word in season.
