All month I was thinking, “Will I know?” I thought of a couple of charities, but then I waited…It has been a great chance for me to stop and listen for the Lord’s guidance.
Monday, I was out shopping and I missed a light. So, there I was all frustrated, sitting at the red light. But, God gave me a minute at that light to think about the $ and I prayed that He would show me what to do. When the light turned green, I crossed the intersection, and out of the corner of my eye, I saw a sign that said, ” I need a job, please”. An older gentleman with gray hair in his late 60s was holding it. It took me a few 100 feet to realize, this was it.
So, I turned around, and he came to my car window. “Do you have any work for me?”, he asked.
I said, “no, but what do you need? ”
He said that he had place to stay, but needed a job to pay for it. I grabbed the envelope I had the Ten for Him money in and grabbed 2 $20s. As I was handing the money to him, I asked him if he knew Jesus, and he said yes. I said I was with a group of ladies who love the Lord and we had collected the money to help someone and we wanted to help out. He took the money, folded it and put it in his pocket. Then he said, “Thank you.”
I gave the remaining $60 to a program called Make a Child Smile!
