A Christmas Eve Connection

An amazing chain of events occurred this Christmas Eve afternoon. I know without a doubt that God orchestrated the entire production. It began with a driver hitting the rear end of my husband’s car while he made his turn into the driveway at home. I arrived an hour later to survey the damage and ran to our neighbor to thank her for phoning the police after the accident.

As I was leaving out of the gate from our neighbor’s home, I saw a familiar face! It was Aileen who attended my last church, Time In Destiny! She told me she was walking down our street looking for a building in which a place was available for rent. She had already arranged to meet the manager  at the rental but then discovered it was located in the opposite direction. I told Aileen that I would accompany her to look at the property. We located the building only a block from our place and a kind woman walked out in front to meet us. She introduced herself as Gabriele.

Gabriele showed us the unit and  it was really full of potential. However, the tenant told us that he didn’t know if he could vacate the place by the end of the month. We walked over to Gabriele’s apartment and through our conversation discovered that she too is a Christian. To our surprise, the church she regularly attends is one that both Aileen and I have been drawn to visit for the past week. Coincidence? I don’t think so! Gabriele even led us in prayer that God would guide Aileen to choose the right place to move. I returned home after two hours and my husband asked where I had disappeared to. I relayed the amazing story to him and am still in awe of how God brought the three of us together.

I received a message from Aileen a short time later saying that she was indeed going to move into Gabriele’s building and the current tenant had agreed to move out by the 31st! I am so excited and look forward to more fellowship with Aileen and Gabriele. Our God is so awesome and gives us all that we need and more! Have a blessed Christmas season and New Year!
