He came to one of my concerts alone and sat on the front row. You could tell that he seemed to listen intensely to every song, as well as held on to each of the testimonies. After the service was over, I noticed him waiting just outside the doors of the lobby. After I had torn everything down, and was getting ready to load, he walked up and said, “Hey, I am Bryan, do you need some help?” He helped me carry my table merchandise out to be loaded. As we finished loading, he said, “I came tonight because I saw your poster and wondered if you would take time to talk to me.” Until this point, I thought that he went to this church regularly, but he had never been. He said, “Would you have time to talk?” I said, “Sure, have you eaten?” He let me know that he didn’t have any money, but would go and sit with me while I ate. He followed me to a nearby restaurant, we ate, and he began to open up. He said, “My mother came to one of your concerts and bought one of you books, ‘Yes HE Can’. She asked me if I would read it. As I began to read, I couldn’t put the book down. I have read it 4 times all the way through.” He went on to say, “I have a problem. I’m hooked on drugs and I want to stop, but I can’t.” He said, “Do you think GOD will heal me? I need help, but I don’t know if I have the faith to be healed.” I began to speak faith into him. I let him know that GOD created him and put HIS strength in him. I told that GOD said HE had plans for him and they were great! I gave him a phone number for a “Substance Abuse Counselor” in Atlanta, as well as my phone number. Four (4) weeks later, Bryan called me and said, “Mr. Johnathan, I wanted to call you and let you know that I have been completely drug free since the night I came to your concert. One month free and all because GOD has faith in me. THANK YOU JESUS!
I am thankful to know that GOD has plans for each and every one of us. Remember, our every step is ordered of the LORD. HE puts people in our path for a greater purpose, and we should always let HIM love through us.
Have a blessed Testimony Tuesday!
