I would have died if neighbors and God had not intervened – Arty
Arty, who lives alone, was sick for 4 weeks in her apartment. A few text messages to one neighbor led to more neighbors reaching out. Not getting much response, they soon realized Arty needed their help to get her to a hospital. Tests revealed she was in septic shock due to a kidney infection. Thankfully, she healed and has renewed hope in the power of Jesus. This experience reminded Arty of the love of her neighbors, of God and of the lyrics to the song “Rescue” – In the middle of my darkest night He rescued me.
God sent me a shooting star to remind me of my loved one – Kelly
My mother-in-law passed away 2 years ago. The first time I went away to go to work after her death I was driving home and it was pitch black and I thought God I need a sign that Suzanne is with me. And just then the biggest brightest shooting star went right across the sky and it was just like wow thank you God!
8 months pregnant, Lindsay was having a tough morning. See how 1 person made her day!
I am 8 months pregnant and was having a terrible morning. I decided to go through the drive-thru on my way to work. When I pulled up to the window to pay, the person handed me a card that said this: “Hi! You don’t know me but I’ve just paid for your order. No gimmicks – it’s just something I felt like doing.” I had heard about people doing things for others. This sure made my day!
In the moment of decision to end my marriage, God interceded – Rhonda
As my husband and I we were going through difficult times in our marriage, a song from Chris August came on the radio called “Restore” at the very exact time I was on my way to counseling to figure out if I wanted to stay married. It’s as if God knew at the very second I needed it! My marriage is restored and although it’s not perfect we are still married! God is Great!
Sometimes it’s just about saying thank you! – Sarah
I just feel blessed every day. I have a wonderful husband. I have a wonderful family and sometimes it’s just about saying Thank you!
When I needed Him most, God was there to comfort. – Victoria
My dad died following a bike accident on his way to work. People didn’t know how to respond to a 20-something losing a parent. People weren’t always there, but I was reminded that God was – through the nights I wasn’t sleeping, while others minimized my pain. And He didn’t expect me to get over it before I could re-enter community. It is still hard every day. people who showed they cared at first have moved on, but God is still there. It feels so good to have a constant through the chaos.
A Drive-thru Difference brightened up Jill’s whole day!
I was having a tough morning needing more patience than usual helping my 5 children with distant learning. I decided to treat myself at Starbucks. At the window I was told that It was paid for by the car in front of me. It brightened up my whole day. I pray that God provides everything you stand in need of today!
