He didn't know that I spent over $100 this month on lice treatment

He didn't know that I spent over $200 this month on my van

He didn't know that I had unexpected doctor's visits this month

He didn't know that I am so broken it hurts

He didn't know anything about me, but...

HE did! Tonight a stranger gave me $20 and simply said, "Be blessed" and I wept because I felt HIM all around me, reminding me that HE sees it all. The stranger didn't know that his simple, kind gesture would envelope me in the Father's Love.

Something deep inside me resists the gift because it makes me feel unclean that men who are not my husband are loving me and caring for me in tangible ways. God is using His body to love the widow and her orphans and something deep in me is touched and wounded all at the same time.

That man, that man that I will probably never see again had a thought and he acted on it. Is he a believer? Filled with the Holy Spirit? It doesn't matter because God used him.

What a wonderful way to feel God's love. And it's a reminder that when we feel prompted to do something that may not seem to make sense, we may be getting that prompting from God!

Bless you, sweet sister in Christ!
May you continue to feel His loving arms wrapped around your soul. He cares for us is such creative ways. Bless that man who acted in obedience to God's voice...he was listening and responding to a need! How beautiful!

Thanks so much. Your blog gives me the same feeling that the $20 gift gave you.

That is a "God Moment" if I ever heard one. May you continue to be blessed and continue to pay it forward by giving your beautiful testimony. Thanks for sharing

Amen...My husband & I have experienced many of these kind of blessings, and were writing them down in a journal...great idea (got lazy and misplaced the book...very sad to admit!) You have reminded me how important it was to do! I will start another now, even if I cannot remember all of the events, He will bring them to my mind.

Hi, I read this and I was just really compelled to leave a comment.

Hang in there. It will get better. I am still coming to terms with the fact that I haven't been able to go to a grocery store and buy a sufficient amount of food to feed myself in the last few months.

It will get better. I have the faith. Yesterday I went to a soup kitchen for the first time in my life. I wanted to cry when I looked around at all the people there. The volunteers were very nice and welcoming.
