I swung by a gas station yesterday morning to hand out some tracts and maybe bless someone on my way home from somewhere. Only one problem: It was cold and rainy! Like, no one was standing next to the pumps. There were a bunch of cars there, but people were basically non-existent. My guess was they were all inside warming up!
I noticed a lady sitting in her car. As I walked over to her, she rolled her window down just a little bit (I guess I look scary in the morning). I asked her if she was getting gas, and she said she wasn’t. I am always amazed by people who park at the pump but aren’t buying gas!
We continued talking, and she explained that she didn’t have money for gas. Well, that intrigued me, so we talked some more. I ended up giving her a gospel tract and some money so she could buy some fuel. She was very, very grateful. She told me she liked to read, so I walked back to my car to get her a book.
When I came back with Paradise, she wanted to say more. She said, “If you have a moment, can I tell you something?” Then she told me that she was staying at one of those weekly or monthly hotels down the street. Her kids were in school, and the manager of the hotel had given her a notice that said if she didn’t come up with $12 by 11:00 a.m., he was going to kick her family out. Tears were welling up in her eyes because she realized I had given her enough money to cover both her lodging and some gas. And it was 10:15 in the morning!! She knew this was a blessing from God. We had a great talk about Jesus. She even had her Bible with her.
What a blast it was to be praising God at the gas station!
And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.
Don’t forget that if we can praise God in prison, we can surely praise Him at every gas station as well!!
Until the Nets are Full,
P.S. She also didn’t know that I had slipped some money into the Paradise book before she told me the story about being close to getting kicked out of her hotel. I just sensed that she had a need and that God could use me to help meet it. She was in for a nice surprise once she opened that book!
P.P.S. What if the real goal is for everyone to not use an electric vehicle? What if the goal is to get rid of most, if not all, vehicles for use by the average person? If that is the goal, then what would those in power gain? It would give them an easy way to control the movement and travel of the masses. Elites love control. Make sure you don’t cede any of your freedoms to them.
