One of my goals this year is to hand out one tract a day. Over the past twenty years I have gone out door knocking weekly and handed out thousands of tracts, witnessed to random people I meet and given them all a tract but for some reason I am having the worst time walking up to people and just handing them a tract! Every day I go to the store and as I come out, I walk to my car and scan the parking lot and ask God to show me who He wants me to hand the tract too. I really haven't felt God directly show me anyone so I walk up to the closest person I see and ask them if they'll accept this tract from me and explain I have promised God I would hand one out every day this year. A few people have looked a little weary of taking it but when I tell them I promised something to God they all take it.
Monday night around eleven o'clock, I was finishing my nightly
Bible study and getting ready to head to bed when I realized that I had not given out a tract that day! With the wind chill it was almost -30 degrees out and freezing cold! I seriously sat there thinking,
would it hurt if just today, just this once I skipped handing out a tract. I was instantly convicted I had to go hand out a tract because if I skipped one day it would be so easy to skip another. I went and told my wonderfully sweet husband who drove me to the nearest store so we could find someone in the parking lot so I could hand my tract out.
Do you know who is walking out in the parking lot in -30 degree weather? No one! In the shopping complex there was a Silver Mine Sub shop so I asked my husband to stop and I ran and handed the tract to the cashier there. He was seriously looking at me like I was crazy but he took the tract!
So after today and handing a tract to a cable guy who was at my friends house, I have 356 days left to hand out just one more tract!
