There have been so many times that I have written about a God who would never leave us or forsake us or even leave us abandoned in the storm…never realizing that I would truly experience the meaning of these thoughts and words…in such a powerful way!
Yesterday, it was that time again, when I needed to go grocery shopping; so I called a taxi for my husband and me and then we went to the store to do some shopping. After finishing, I called the taxi service back; but due to such a busy day with the cab service, they said that they wouldn’t be able to pick us up, for about a half hour to 45 minutes.
After waiting and waiting…the taxi still hadn’t shown up; so I called them back and mentioned that we had groceries…and I had a bad leg; so how much longer would we have to wait. From there, he mentioned that it may be another 20 minutes…and I said ok and hung up the phone.
Once I had hung up the phone, I relayed his message to my husband…and as we both stood there…feeling a little discouraged, I said a prayer and asked God to help us. Within a moment’s time, a very nice lady approached us and said that her and her husband noticed that we had been standing outside the store, when they went into shop and was wondering if everything was alright. From there, I told her what was happening and then she wanted to know if they could help, by taking us home. Even though she seemed really nice, I was still a little hesitant, as to whether it was a good idea to do this.
After we had talked for a few minutes, she said… “I don’t know if this will help but we are Christians.” Right then and there…something hit me and I knew that God was using these people to answer my prayer…and from there, we agreed to go with them.
I’ll tell you…we had the nicest time together…all the way home and come to find out; they live only a very short distance from us and she had also been by our place before…while out walking.
All I can say today…is what a God! As I was looking through some Bible verses, I came across Deuteronomy 31:6, which reads… “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never
leave you nor forsake you."
No matter what we face in life, we can rest assured that God will NEVER take His eye off of us…for He is a God who loves us with an unconditional love…a love that is willing to go beyond anything for us…and that is what I experienced today!
