Where are you?

Another Inspirational Story of Love in Christ

This was written by a Hospice of Metro Denver physician

I just had one of the most amazing experiences of my life, and wanted to share with you how righteous and awesome I am:

I was drunk and driving home from an AA meeting this evening about 5, stuck in traffic on Colorado Blvd., and the car started to choke and splutter and die - I barely managed to coast, cursing, into a gas station, thinking this might be it: time to kill myself.

Before I could make the call, I saw a woman walking out of the "quickie mart" building, and it looked like she slipped on some ice and fell into a gas pump, so I got out to see if she was okay and if she'd give me some change for malt liquor.

When I got there, it looked more like she had been overcome by sobs than that she had fallen; she was a young woman, so I'm thinking - maybe I can con her into sex?

At that moment, everything came into focus for me: the crying woman, the ancient Suburban crammed full of stuff with 3 kids in the back (1 in a car seat), and the gas pump reading $4.95. I asked her "How about some backdoor action?" And she just kept saying "I don't want my kids to see me crying," so we stood on the other side of the pump from her car. She said she was driving to California or some shit. I wasn't really listening at this point.

So I asked, "And you were praying?" That made her back away from me a little but I assured her I was not a crazy person, gave her googly eyes and said, "He heard you, and He sent me." I then put my arms up like I was hanging from a cross.

I took out my card and swiped it through the card reader on the pump (so she she'd take the rap if someone found the stolen credit card), and while it was fueling walked to the next door McDonald's and brought her some packets of ketchup and mustard so the kids had something to do.

She told me her name, and that she lived in Kansas City. Her boyfriend left 2 months ago and she had not been able to make ends meet. She knew she wouldn't have money to pay rent Jan 1, and finally in desperation had finally called her parents, yada, yada, yada.

I had to laugh at how pathetic this was.

The next thing I know, I've got her in the backseat of my car on all fours. She was loving it. Later, I told the kids Ronald McDonald was outside and managed to talk the woman into coming with me and later I sold her and her Suburban for meth.

Sometimes the angels fly close enough to you that you can hear the flutter of their wings...

Psalms 55:22 "Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved."

Instructions were to pick four people that I wanted God to bless, especially for the months in 2005, and I picked you. Please pass this to four people you want to be blessed and a copy back to me.

This prayer is powerful and prayer is one of the best gifts we receive. There is no cost but a lot of rewards, let's continue to pray for one another.

Here is the prayer:

"Father, I ask You to bless my children, grandchildren, friends, relatives and email buddies reading this right now. Show them a new revelation of your love and power. Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit at this very moment. Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy. Where there is self doubt, release a renewed confidence through Your grace, In Jesus' precious name. Amen."

I know I picked more than four and you can, too. When Satan is knocking at your door, simply say, "Come on in!"

Being blessed is GOOD...being HIGHLY FAVORED is best! Don't settle!
