Some Red Carnations

Tell us what happened:

"Whilst spending time with God, He gave me a vision of encouraging someone on the street. Later, I was out and about doing a few things, when I asked Him where He wanted to go and if there was anything He wanted to do. God directed me to a flower shop, and I felt I was to buy three red carnations to give to someone. I walked past people on the street wondering who they were for... " Is it for this person?" but time and time again He would gently reply "Just wait". So I sat on the bench and rested for a bit. I began to pray over the city until I felt the nudge to go stand in a lit up area beside a store. I started to laugh because I literally looked as if a date went real bad as I stood there holding these flowers - God has a good sense of humor.

Soon after a lady, and I'm guessing her son, began to walk by me. I asked again "God, are they for her!?" "yes, that's her!" I started to feel really joyful! I asked for a word of knowledge, and felt that she was a nurse and that she needed some encouragement today. She went into the store which gave me some time because I started second guessing myself. A couple of minutes later, she came out and I felt the boldness to go over to ask if she was a nurse. And she was! I told her that I was practicing hearing God's voice and I felt that these flowers were for her. I then started giving her some encouragement, that she is really appreciated for all she does and for the hours of hard work she puts into her job. She began to glow and she was very thankful.

Quickly, she popped out her phone and told her son "Take a picture of us! I want to put this on Facebook!" As I was saying goodbye, she hugged me. The lasts words she uttered were, "Bless you." I walked away with a very full heart, knowing this lady felt loved and known, and we both got to share His presence in such a beautiful way."
