This all happened when my husband and I were coming back from Pennsylvania this summer. We were traveling in two separate vehicles and could communicate with each other with two way radio's. It was getting late and we were both getting tired of driving, so we communicated through the radio's to stop and try to get a room for the night. We went to several places, but none of them suited him for various reasons. So we got some coffee at a convenience store and he decided we would stretch out a bit and then continue traveling. I was really aggravated and wanted to stop for the night, but I guess it just wasn't in the plans.

Traveling, for a long stretch, I was having terrible thoughts running through my head, about my husband and him not wanting to stop for the night. I was very tired, so I turned up my radio as loud as it would go, rolled down the window for some fresh night air to keen my senses. All of the sudden, about 1:30 in the morning, this voice came into my mind, loud and clear, that my sister-n-law, Sharon needed $100.00. for something! I hadn't talked to her in a week or so, so I didn't know what this was all about. It came through so clear, that all the bad thoughts I was having about my husband not stopping for the night, left me, I didn't even hear the blaring radio, all I heard was this message, embedded in my thoughts. I knew then, I had to get the money to her some way, some how! You see, Sharon had never spoken to me about any of her personal financial situations at all. I got very emotional, and was trying to figure out how I was going to come up with $100.00 because, I am a homemaker and have no job.

So I called my husband on his radio, emotionally explaining what just came through to me, I was hoping he didn't think I was nuts, but he said, It must have been something she had prayed about, and that he had the money to give her!

We arrived home approximately 2:30 a.m., and as soon as I came in, I tried to call Sharon, I let it ring and ring, but no answer. The next morning as soon as I awoke, I tried to call her again, finally, she answered! I asked her, Sharon, do you need $100.00 for something? She hesitated for a moment, and replied, in a slow, soft, kind a crackly voice, Yeees!

Then I had told her what had happened to me about 1:30 a.m. that morning, and told her I had tried to call her about 2:30 a.m. when we made it home, to see what this was about. She told me the reason she wasn't home was because she was house sitting overnight for some one. She went on to say that temptation had came over her, these people she was house sitting for had lots of money all over the house, and they probably wouldn't miss any, since she was in a predicament and needed it so bad. She explained that she had sent her bills in early, and her money wasn't coming in as planned, and that she needed 100.00 to cover checks she had sent in early, to cover her bills! She continued to say that she had went to bed about 1:30 a.m. and prayed that god take care of this temptation she was fighting, She knew it was morally wrong so she told God as she prayed, she was leaving it in his hands!

WOW!!! This was no coincidence, this was truly the work of God!! This was a wonderful experience for me and I am thankful, that God chose me to help her, and gave me confirmation too! This is a very true story, and I pray, the next time God chooses me to help someone, that the message comes through as loud and clear as it did this time!! I do admit, I am a hard headed person at times, but God got my attention very clearly!
