Some of you may recall the story (approximately nine months ago) of a lady on whom I took pity and to whom I gave an old computer. She shared with me her descent into drug addiction, which culminated in her imprisonment. She was recently released from prison, working as a waitress in a local restaurant, and expressed the desire to access the Internet to do Bible study and to improve her computer skills in order to seek higher-paying employment. I determined that her computer (purchased from a loathsome deceiver at a yard sale, who assured her it worked fine) was incapable of affording her the Internet access she desired. The Holy Spirit told me to take pity on her, and I did—giving her a functioning computer that had been collecting dust in the storage area of my office. I wondered what had become of her. I had not seen or heard from her since encountering her once at the market a few weeks after I gave her the computer—at which time she said the computer was working well and said that God would surely bless me for the kindness I had shown her.

I received a telephone call from her this morning. She moved to Sacramento several months ago and soon thereafter was given a job at a title company. She has been on the worship team at a small church since July and recently became a Bible teacher, instructing young children in the Word. She said that it was my help and belief in her that enabled her to reach her goals. I answered that it was God who had done this, and I had merely acted as His servant. She said, "I know. God bless you."
