FedEx Worker Brings Package to Lady With Sick Husband. 20 Stops Later, She Feels a ‘Tug’ to Turn Around, And God Uses Her in a BIG Way.


As Christians, we are all called to be God’s vessels and a ‘light unto the world’. But it’s so easy to wrap that little cliché up in a bow and tuck it away for a time when it’s convenient for us.

Most of us probably know what it’s like to feel that little nudge from the Holy Spirit to help someone in need, to pray for a stranger, or to stop in your tracks in the middle of a hectic day.

But how many of us actually obey that subtle “nudge” by moving our feet in the direction of His will, when it would be SO easy to keep going about our own way?

Well, FedEx employee Amanda Riggan knows exactly what it’s like to be in that position. And in a moment when she encountered a woman grief-stricken over her husband’s sickness, she knew she couldn’t afford to keep plugging along on her route, though she had 100 stops to go.

“I drove off. My heart’s pounding. I do probably 20 more stops and I have to go back,” said Amanda.

“A lot of people want the Lord to use them, and for me as an example, I pray every day for the Lord to use me,” she continued. “But when he’s trying to use you or when you feel that call and that tug on your heartstrings, do you move your feet? Do you move?

Watch the video below to discover how the rest of Amanda’s inspiring story unfolds. May it encourage you to follow God’s leading in your own heart today.

When we can pray, listen, and read the Word, the Lord will speak to our hearts.

There is no room in our bodies, hearts, and minds for anything other than God, but we continue to fill the spaces with it. The thing is, those things don’t satisfy, they just leak out leaving us feeling empty. If we build it, though, He will come. Here’s how to hear God’s voice better.
