TITLE: Those Little Clicks
By Patrick Champion


It was a beautiful morning on a Thursday in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. You know the great town of the “Roll Tide”, and Jimmy actually worked on that campus. He worked as a carpenter for building maintenance and had to be in every building on the campus at some time during his duration as an employee there.
Jimmy, had been knowing the Lord since the age of fifteen and was like most, trying to walk down the path that Jesus was trying to hold his hand and guide him on his whole life, but Jimmy wanted to do it Jimmy’s way!!
“Lord, I know you want me to approach my buddy about this matter that we are having between us, but he cussed me so bad, he talked so bad about You and I just don’t think he’s that good of a fella anymore.” CLICK
The Holy Spirit spoke to Jimmy in a father-like approach, “ Now, Jimmy, how would I approach you if you had cussed someone out and had said something wrong about Me or anything else that you might do that you know that you are told not to do in My Word. Keep that in mind, please. “ Thank you, Lord, for pointing that out to me.”
“Good morning, Mary, how are you doing? You sure are looking nice today.” Mary replies, “What’s so good about it!!” Mary is the director of communications in one of the buildings on Jimmy’s route so he has to be careful how to approach this matter because if Mary takes anything the wrong way he might get in trouble with his boss and jeopardize his job. CLICK
Dear Holy Spirit, please help me to know what to say to Mary to be an encourager, comforter and to be able to point her to You. I ask this in Jesus’ name. AMEN
“Well Mary, Jesus loves me and you and I’m here to see if I can help you in some way so I can start your day off with a smile!! “ Mary almost knocks Jimmy down not even checking up to hardly listen to Jimmy. “I haven’t got time to listen to you, Jimmy!” Jimmy replies, “Don’t forget, Mary, Jesus loves you and I will pray that your day gets better. Have a great day!” CLICK
We all have choices to make every day, Jimmy had several to make in just the first thirty minutes of his work day at the U of A. We can choose to make them for the Lord and with the Lord or we can make them on our own. Let’s don’t do it on our own. CLICK
Let’s take the time to hear those “CLICKS” in our heads and think, pray and ask the Holy Spirit what to do and take His hand and walk the path that he has for us to follow every single day. Click away!!

Overall I like the idea of this piece, but I found it hard to read because of the formatting. Putting a little space between the paragraphs can help the eye move through it better. Keep up the good work!

Good Story. Got lost in the second paragraph, but found myself again. One of the sentences didn't sound right.
Get a good proofer and keep writing!

I really enjoyed this intimate peek into Jimmy's relationship with God. It is one we all dream of having, but like Jimmy at times can be a tad stubborn!

I wasn't sure what the clicks were. I thought maybe he was unlocking doors as he made his rounds. Make sure you start a new paragraph each time someone different speaks and if you double space them it makes it easier on the reader to have that white space.

All in all I think you did a nice job of showing what a personal relationship with Jesus can be like. I really thought the prayers were powerful and enjoy it when a writer includes the prayer to show a reader who may not know how to pray, that it is much like talking to your best friend. Good job!
