So do ya want to hear a funny story from Vegas? (This is like funny story #532 or something, there were so many.) Here it is.
I have been seeking God's will for my life and I feel like He's leading me to share my faith with more people. He wants me to be ready to tell people about Him so I had this attitude going to Vegas that maybe there would be someone there that I could minister to, pray with, witness to, etc. Of course I got sick so that pretty much made me think about "me" the whole time instead of the Lord's work. (Sneaky Devil.)
So on the last day, I still hadn't really talked to anyone about the Lord and I was wondering where I missed my opportunity. So we get in the cab to go to the airport and the cab driver is super-friendly, asking us about ourselves and what we were doing there. He had this funny accent and was just easy to talk to. So we were telling him that we were basically country bumpkins out there in the big city and joking along, ya know how it goes. So we get to the airport and get out and I felt like God was telling me to say to him before he got back in the car, "Jesus Loves You!!" and I thought, "here's my chance, do it!" So I looked at him and he looked at me and at the last second I chickened out and said, "stay cool!" He just looked at me like "huh?" and got in the car and drove off. I was like "man - I blew it!" Stay cool? Stay cool????!!! Where did that come from? I don't say that!!!!!
So I told Ann and of course we both cracked up and have been laughing about it for a week. By the way, God, if you're listening (and I know you are), give me another chance, k? I'll try not to blow it next time!!!!
