Spiritual Promptings For Friends, But Not Family

Through out my adult life I can remember many times when I was prompted to help a friend. Most times I would feel something inside me stirring that got my attention. Then some thought would come to me. The thought would some times come fast and others times it would come after some pondering. After the direction (thought) came, I would go to action and find someone in need and do what I could for them. I haven't had an experience like this for a few years until tonight. I was at priesthood session and I ran into an old friend for my old ward. He went on to say that a another friend named Randy just started to come back to church and he was asking about me. I was astonished to hear that he was asking about me because just a week ago I can distinctly remember walking up the stairs to my apartment getting a strong impression to call Randy. It wasn't a magical heavenly message. It was just a thought, but now that I look back I also remember the thought was a little stronger then other thoughts. I didn't do anything about it at the time. The thing that really got me to connect the dots was when my friend at priesthood said, "You must have made an impression on Randy because he was asking about you..." After he said that, it made sense to me why I had a random thought to call a friend I haven't seen in three plus years. I don't know about you, but I can't think of a better feeling than the one that comes to you when you realize that God was talking to you to help one of his children. The best feeling ever! I hope to find his number tomorrow to call him.

Like I said at the beginning of this post, I have had this experience to help friends yet I can't remember a single time in the five years I have been married where I felt an impression like that. I am not asking for one. I just find it strange that it has never happened. I guess my family doesn't have a problem that a cell phone can't fix...Oh wait, I can remember one time when the spirit spoke to me about my family. Not a story I can tell you though.

So now that I just remembered an experience you may be asking yourself, "What was the point of this post?" And my answer is... I Don't Know! Have a good day.
