We all know what it feels like to pray and pray for things that never seem to come to fruition. However, God’s timing is perfect, and even when it takes years on your knees, it’s always beautiful to see Him come through.
Such was the case for Gwen Stefani at a recent concert in West Palm Beach, Florida.
She spotted a sign in the crowd and immediately took it on stage.
“My son was bullied from 1st to 5th grade,” Stefani read aloud to the audience.
“WHAT?!” she exclaimed.
But as she read the rest of it, she couldn’t help but get emotional:
“He would come home every day upset, but he would go to his room, listen to your music and smile.”
At that she yelled, “Get up here right now!”
The young boy hopped up on stage, and they shared a beautiful embrace that left the boy sobbing tears of joy and the crowd in ALL kinds of happy tears.
After the event, Stefani shared a video of the sweet encounter on social media, along with a caption that read:
“About 3 years ago when things were hard in my life I prayed to God everyday that I could get a chance to use my gift that God gave me and make a difference in some way in this world – last night this little guy was the answer to my prayers #zerotoleranceforbullies #onelove#thisiswhatthetruthfeelslike Gx”
