I figured I would write this week’s article over some amazing thing that recently happened to me. I am a server at a pretty busy restaurant, and the other day (Saturday), was no different. I was running around with a full section, and making sure everything was fine and all of my tables were having a fantastic time. It was towards the end of my shift, and I was getting ready to go home. I got sat with my last table of the day, and I put on my biggest customer service smile.
I went to greet my table, and I was relieved to find that they were quite funny. They were a couple on a date, and they were so fun to talk to. I took their drink order, their meal order, and we talked some more before I went to put their food order in. I left the drinks on the table, and left to check out my other tables. As I was doing a walk through, the lady called me over. She told me that God was really putting it in her heart to leave me some money, and handed me some of it in her wallet. I hadn’t even dropped off their food yet, so I really didn’t want to take it.
She wouldn’t take no for an answer, so I put it in my book, and thanked her for it before I went to check on their meal. When I went out to let them know they would be getting their food soon, she told me to sit down beside her. I did, and what she told me next definitely made my day amazing. She said that God kept speaking to her about me, and that she felt as if I was struggling a lot this month to make rent. I was amazed, simply because I never speak of my struggles or anything like that. She didn’t even know I was in my own apartment. She told me that she wanted to give me more money, and handed me a big bill. I definitely didn’t want to take it, because I felt so bad. She put it in my book, and told me that she believed that she was placed in my section for a reason, and she was glad that God had brought us together.
I couldn’t help but to cry, because everything she told me was true. It has been a bit of a struggle for me lately, and I have been so worried about money. She told me that I don’t need to worry, and to let God take control. I couldn’t believe that these two kind, amazing strangers would do something so nice for me. They said they absolutely loved my service and personality, and would ask for me next time they were in. What they did may not have meant much to them, but to me it meant everything.
It restored my faith in people. There strangers, who had no idea who I was, felt the need to help me out so much. They helped me make rent, and they also helped me remember to put more of my trust in God. I always worry about everything, and this helped me stop to remember that I don’t need to worry so much. This taught me that God puts people in your life, and he speaks to you. You always need to listen to God’s voice, because you never know what his message is telling you.
I am not sure if they will ever see this, but I really hope it gets around to them. They are blessings in this world, and I am so blessed that God put them in my life. I am not writing this to brag about anything, except for the wonderful God that I serve. He is so amazing, and I am so glad that I live a Christian life. Thank you God for all of the blessings you have brought me.
