God Thing

December 7, 2012

I had a “God Thing” happen in the ICU waiting room of Sparks Hospital.  There was a hispanic family that had a family member there so they were eating and sleeping in the waiting room.  Joe and I went back separately to tell my parents goodbye so I was in the ICU waiting room by myself until this 19-year-old hispanic girl came in.  We starting talking and realized that we both had our Dad in ICU.  She asked about my Dad, so I told her he was doing good and would be going home the next day.  When I asked about her Dad she teared up and said that he was really bad and they didn’t know what would happen.  I told her that “God is in control of everything so he is in control of your Dad’s healing”.  She said they had been there for 3 weeks already and her Dad, Cleo, was not doing well.  I asked if I could pray with her – she agreed and put out her hands out to me.  I took her hands and  prayed for her Dad, Cleo, for healing, for her to have faith and strength, and to be with the family and give them strength.  Afterward she thanked me and went back to sit down while I was standing – waiting for Joe to come back out of ICU.  God instantly told me “GIVE HER $30!”.  If you have every been every told something by God you know the feeling – you have to do it.  I thought  – this is going to be a little uncomfortable, but God told me to do it.  I opened my purse and I reached in to get $30 but picked up $40 and thought that I would go ahead and give this to her.  God told me again “Give her $30.  So I took the money over to her, I folded it up and put it in her hand.  I told her that I wanted to give her money to help with buying food while they were there.  She said “No, but.. but…. but…”I told her that God told me to help them and I would continue to pray for her Dad Cleo.

So, Friends and Family, Please put Cleo on your prayer list.  He is around my age, 51, and he has a wife and 3 daughters in their early 20s that need their Dad.  Like I told her “God can work miracles.”
