I have prayed since last Friday that God would show me exactly where He wanted the money. But I have not felt like I had really seen what He wanted me to do.
This morning I had to pick my daughter up from the high school for a doctor’s appointment. I’m waiting at the signal light at the Sonic to turn down to go the the school, and was praying at that intersection for God’s guidance once more – just show me who You want me to give this money to.
So I get to the high school about 5 minutes early and am waiting in the loop for my daughter. An older Ford Expedition pulls up in front of me and a lady gets out. I could tell that she probably was not rolling in the bucks! Anyway, she goes to the back of the SUV, and proceeds to take a wheelchair out. It probably took her a good 5 minutes to get it set up and insert the back of the chair. A teacher or aide came out to lift her severely handicapped son out of the car and put him in the chair. All this time I’m thinking I feel so guilty for getting so tired of putting 2 babies in and out of car seats for a couple of years, when I knew there would be an end to that someday. This woman will do this for as long as she and/or her son are here on this earth. So while the teacher and the mom are getting the boy settled in the chair, my daughter comes out to the car. I look at her and said, “I think this is where my Ten for Him money goes.” She said, “Then do it, Mom!”
I got out of my car and took the money over to the mother, and explained our group, and told her that I had been praying for a few weeks about this, and felt God wanted her to have the money. She started crying, and hugged me several times and thanked me over & over. The teacher was teary eyed, I was teary eyed, and my daughter, watching from our car, was teary eyed.
As my sweet daughter and I drove to the doctor, we just kept talking about how amazing God is, and how He truly answers prayer when He knows the best time!
