Last Wednesday while leaving a nearby gas station, I unknowingly and boneheadedly dropped my debit card in the parking lot.
Within an hour, someone found the card and brought it safely to church. Here is the note that came with the card unedited except for the removal of the person's name:
Mr. Huie, I am a 23 year old student at UGA.
I commute to and from Athens every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Today I happened to be walking out of Racetrac and getting into my car and saw your debit card. Upon googling your name, I saw someone familiar-Neal Kuhlhorst. Neal has helped my family over the years in various struggles. The last time I spoke to Neal was over a year ago, amidst a struggle with addiction. I have not had a drink in over 12 months. It is and was only possible that I deal with this struggle through a growing, conscious connection with God. Every day I remind myself that what I am doing is not me-it is His working through me. In short, I do not feel like I picked up your card today by mistake. Kinda funny how the big man upstairs works sometimes, huh? God bless.
And God bless that young man for his faithfulness, and God bless Neal Kuhlhorst in his good work through our counseling center. God does work in amazing ways.
We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.
Prayer for Today
O God, we thank you for the goodness in people and for your renewing work in our lives. Amen.
