As with most people who receive the money in a given month, you try to listen more closely to the voice of God directing you to where you should give. Maybe try to reach out of your comfort zone and catch someone out and about that is in need. Little did I know mine would be right under my nose.
My housekeeper is a faithful woman of God but she has had her share of trials and she always praises the Lord in all matters. The month that I had the money she was invited to a Women of Faith conference in which her friend was going to pay half of the $250 fee to attend. She was so excited to attend. She had never before left her family to do anything for herself. Never had stayed in a nice hotel, etc. I saw the opportunity to give her the $100 to pay for most of the rest of what she owed for the conference. When I handed her the money she wasn’t happy with me. She did not want me to give her the money. BUT when I told her the money was not from me but from God, she starting crying and thanking me.
The next week after she came back from the conference, she was a changed woman! She seemed to be empowered by the message that she heard and gave her a new found confidence.
I know we are to be a blessing to others through this group but I know that I am blessed a hundred times over each month just hearing the stories of how God is working through this wonderful group!!!
