Divine appointment with "Anonymous."

Tonight I went to Walmart- I'm not even sure why because I didn't actually "need" anything. Well, while I was there, I ran into a man, I'll just call him "Anonymous." He had a huge, hundred acre smile on his face when he said hello, but I could just sense that something wasn't right with him. I stayed and chatted with him for a while. After listening to him talk, it became apparent that he was struggling very much in life. It wasn't just one struggle, but it was many: Faith, Marriage, Trust, Happiness, Family. I wasn't really sure what I was supposed to say to him- but I knew that God had me there in that moment to listen to every word he had to say. I gave a few hints of advice here and there but ultimately that's not what God wanted me to do. God wanted me to reassure this man that the dark prevails just before the light dawns. He wanted me to emphasize to this struggling man that even though it doesn't seem like it, God is in charge of his life and most definitly working his plan through him-and most importantly: God uncondditionally loves him. Even though this man openly expressed his frustration and anger with God and the Church, not once did he actually give up on God. In the midst of his struggle and pain, in the midst of the dark cloud that surrounded him- he still acknowledged his love and devotion to Creator who made him. It was so neat to see all of the light surrounding him. He couldn't see it himself- but, I could see, I could tell that God had something magnificant planned for him after this dark time in his life. He is absolutely in a Faith growth spirt, and God is the one nurturing him. I don't really know if my conversation with him impacted his life at all, but I do know that I was meant to be in that exact isle at Walmart, at that exact time to express to this anonymous man that even though things are tough, and God is growing him, that He is also relentlessly pursuing him because He unconditionally loves him.
