Seeing something else

I recently watched a movie about a musical genius who basically went crazy due to his life circumstances. He ended up homeless. It is based on a true story. I don’t even remember the name of it (and don’t feel like looking it up), but the point is this:  in the movie, someone saw what no one else did and helped him regain his platform. He could still play the cello like no one else could.

We were recently traveling in Kansas, and we were eating breakfast in McDonalds. There was a man sitting behind us who was obviously “crazy” by any definition. He was talking to himself, had a table full of ‘nick-nacks’ and kept getting up and down and looking in the trashcan. My heart went out to him. I thought, “Jesus could change his life”. I prayed that the tract I was about to hand him would make an impact, and then I walked it over to him.

“Here you go”, I said. “It’s one of my favorite stories“.”

He looked up to heaven as if asking God, “why is he talking to me?”. Then he looked at me. His eyes told me that no one had talked to him in a long time.

“Your favorite? Did you write it?” he asked.

“No I didn’t, but it’s a good one”, I said with a smile as I walked away.

And that was that. If he read it, Christ could heal him and change his life. I am confident of that.

Question: Do you have a cool witnessing experience to share?
