Last night I went to a southern gospel concert with a friend. It was uplifting and encouraging to my heart. I have shared a few song lyrics sung by the group Brian Free and Assurance. For example, “Say Amen” and “I Will Be Praying.”
While music was encouraging but there was what I call a silent inspiration in the audience on the front row. He had to be at least a teenager. He was handicapped
about like me, walked with a limp, with his left hand bent down and a big smile on his face! And from what I can tell he couldn’t talk. I think he was about as excited as I was being there! During one of the songs where the bass sang a lot I saw him use his hand as a microphone singing/humming with his mom. Of course he was singing the bass part. It was precious. There was something special about him that you don’t see in very many handicapped people and that was the love of God.
I regret to inform you that I did not talk to him or his mom which I deeply regret. While I met Brian Free who was very nice. I think I could have also met this young man who remains nameless. If I just would have taken the time to stop thinking about me, and what I want, only The Lord knows what May have happened. Please learn from my mistake. When God prompts our heart or speaks to us, we should act quickly while His voice is still ringing in our thoughts.
