Some took a few sheets while others rolled off many. The only man in the group had rolled off a lot.
As it turned out, the object was for each volunteer to tell the group one thing about himself or herself for each tissue square they had.
When it was Chris’ turn, he started out with his name, and gave us a little more information about himself with each additional square. Then he said, “I’m an alcoholic.” Another square – “I was unfaithful to my wife.”
The room was dead silent. We were all taken aback, and I was thinking, oh, my goodness! Chris continued. “Jesus saved me.” Another square – “I have been forgiven.” “I have been redeemed.”
I couldn’t help myself. When Chris finished, I just squealed and hooted with delight! Others clapped their approval.
Now, that’s not the kind of thing you expect to hear in a workplace environment, but Love Heart, it thrilled my soul! The middle part of 1 Peter 3:15 popped into my mind. “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.”
Chris seized the opportunity to testify to the glory and awesomeness of God. What an impression it made on me! In those moments, we all knew where Chris stood, and we knew Who he was standing on! Praise be to God. Gwen~
