The Story of James… Angel or a Man?
I was still new to hearing the Lord speak and to going on, what we call missions for Him, when He tells us He has something for us to do for Him.
My roommate, best friend and sister in Christ Pat and I had woken up that morning and felt very strongly God had a mission to send us on that day (this was my first time doing this). We did not know where He wanted us to go but knew He would lead us.
We loaded ourselves into the car and headed out on the road. I was driving and Pat my sister in Christ was a passenger. I felt Him pulling us toward the interstate and as we got to I-75 I knew to turn north so we did.
We talked about the Lord on the whole trip, which we usually do. We always have a blessed time on our road trips but especially if the are guided and given to us by the Lord. We have awesome fellowship, we either are singing or talking about the Lord in some way or another.
Like I said, we had no idea where He was taking us but we knew to keep going north and we eventually ended up in Georgia. We have been to a place called Lake Park before but have never driven past there. As we came up to Lake Park, we knew we must keep going.
We eventually came to a town and I stopped to fill the gas tank up and I told Pat, maybe we passed it, where He was guiding us to go. So I headed back south. Pat said no, she didn’t think we had, so I pulled off the next exit and as I we were talking about it, she looked and on a sign that was very close to us, that went to the on ramp to go north, sat a dove. We knew then to keep driving.
You will never guess the name of the town we came up to and knew immediately that was our destination.
As we drove and came sorta around a bend there was a big green sign with the name of the town on it, the name, “Omega.”
We looked at each other and knew immediately this is where He was leading us. The thing was we could see there was only one tourist type place there as we pulled off the interstate.
As we turned off the off ramp we both saw a man sitting on the side of the road just before the driveway to the store.
We drove past the man and pulled up to the store, all they sold there were sweets, peanuts and etc. So we grab a few things and headed back out.
We went passed the man, then made a u-turn pulling up beside him. We told him we had something for him and also blessed him with what the Lord said to do.
Pat asked him his name and he said it was James. We told him the Lord lead us here to meet him and she asked if we could pray for him. He said yes, without hesitating.
I will never forget his eyes. I saw something in them, to this day, that still has me wondering about who he really was.
We then made another u-turn and headed to the on ramp to go back south. We both were so stirred from the encounter that we never thought to look back to see if he was still there. To this day, we don’t know if he was a real person or an angel.
We have had other missions the Lord has sent us on but this being my first time on doing something like that, about being obedient to Him when He tells us, leads us, to do something for Him. It will be one I will never forget.
It really doesn’t matter, if he was a man or an angel. Although there is a little bit inside both of us that would like to know, maybe we will find out when we get to heaven. The main thing was we were obedient and I believe the Lord was pleased.
