The Twenty Dollar Bill

an example of my spiritual program at work

Twelve years ago, I had stopped working because of fatigue from the Multiple Sclerosis I was diagnosed with and decided to apply to Social Security for permanent disability, which could take eighteen month to several years to be approved. Just a few months earlier I had separated from my wife, for reasons other than my MS, and purchased an old row house in Baltimore City that needed much repair, but was a roof over my head. It was far from being an ideal situation but one I thought I could handle, even though I always had a good paying job and never lived anywhere but the affluent suburbs of northern Baltimore County, Maryland.

To supplement my reduction in income I was working a few hours a day and receiving a small allotment of food stamps each month, both of which never seemed to be enough to cover just the basics I needed. After a few months things were not looking good and I my first thought was to wonder if my decision to stop working had been a good one. But when I stopped and thought about the spiritual program I had been a part of for the last ten years I continued to live one day at a time.

Going to the grocery store was always a worrisome time, and one particular April I had used all but a nineteen dollars’ worth of my food stamps by the fifteenth of the month. I filled my cart with boxes of macaroni and cheese and other very inexpensive items knowing they would have to last for two weeks. When I got to the checker I was very nervous watching my total rise on the register as she scanned each item. As the conveyor belt brought the last few items toward her a twenty dollar bill came out from under the counter and landed at the end of my groceries.

I said to the checker, "this must be yours."

She shook her head and said, "I guess your groceries are free today."

I looked at the total and it was exactly twenty dollars.

Call it luck or whatever you like, but I truly believe my Higher Power had taken care of me again.

Excellent write Wayne,
God is with us all of the time. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.(James 4:8)Its funny, I get a daily e-mail from Pastor Allen from God's Minute devotions@godsminute.org. I thought that I would share this with you.

This is what Pastor Allen said today. Enjoy!

Now isn't is a pity that so many in this World today feel
unloved and alone, when all they have to do is reach out
to God? For it is also written; God is love. (1 John 4:8)
Always tell God how
much you love Him when you pray. For God has said;
I love those who love me, And those who seek
me diligently will find Me. ( Proverbs 8:17 )

So, love the LORD your God with
all your heart, with all your soul, and with
all your mind.' ( Matthew 22:37 ) And He will
love you and bless you, in return. He will also fill
you with His Great Love, a love that many in the
World do not know. Amen.

All My Love & Prayers,
Pastor Allen
