RED ROBIN

March 2, 2021

So our Pastor preached a sermon on generosity and how God owns all that we have.  His point was not money for the church ….but allowing God to use us.

Later in the day my husband and I were going for a ride in the country to get ice cream.  The place was jam packed and we decided to head into town.  We were going to another ice cream store and then we passed a Red Robin restaurant.  I had never eaten there and it was new.  So we turned the car around and went in.  

As we sat eating, I noticed a young man and his two kids eating behind us.  I got this thought.  Why don’t you pay for their meal.  As we ate,  it came to me several times until I knew it was the Holy Spirit.  I told my husband and he agreed we should absolutely do it.  So I looked in my purse and  had a tract entitled “True Love” , about God’s love for us.  I put it on their table and said rather plainly  “God just spoke to us to pay for your meal, so the waitress is going to bring your money back”   Then I said to this young man  “I’m proud of you for spending time with your kids and I think God is too!!!”   His eyes lit up with joy. He said, “this is my son’s birthday dinner, he wanted to come here!” 

We paid for the meal and they came to the table to thank us.  He said, my daughter said to me earlier  “this is gonna be a good day”

How cool is that.  God orchestrated that whole thing!!! They left,  I hope,  knowing that God “sees” them.  And we pray that God will complete what He began in them.
