… Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it…. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing. (Eph 2:7)
Years ago, we redecorated our offices each year and rather than pay a decorator for the service, the staff did the painting, and we shared the monies equally between them.
I was in my office handling the calls while my secretary decided that the best way to clean the ceiling tiles was to stand on a wheelie chair on top of a desk – a disaster waiting to happen.
I remember hearing a roar of wheels followed by a crash and a sickening thump, and running out, I saw her crumpled on the floor by a window.
I knelt by her side and gently held her to my chest. She was extremely disoriented, having hit her face on the window ledge, and blood was pouring down her face from a horrible open gash above her nose.
I saw a box of tissues on a desk and asked my secretary’s assistant to give me some. I took a bunch and held them over the wound to try and staunch the flow of blood.
I was the only one in the office at that time that held Jesus as Lord. I remember staring out at the few workers that had gathered around her in shock, and then I simply said out loud, “Father, I don’t want this to be this way; please help!”
I took away the bloody tissue, and her face was perfect - no wound and no blood! My secretary’s assistant fainted!
They both came to Christ a few days later …
