Convicted over my lack of compassion, I turned my car around and made my way to the gas station where I bought the lady a sandwich and hot chocolate. I walked it across the parking lot to her where she humbly accepted the purchase, hugged my neck and said, "God bless you."
I walked about fifty feet back to my car and when I turned around to wave, she was gone. Gone!! Chills went through me. I looked everywhere and there was no sign of her.
I'm crying as I type this because I know that moment was so much bigger than I am. It was a moment of conviction for my lack of compassion, a moment of humility as I witnessed the women's gratitude, and a moment of overwhelming awe as I experienced the magnificence of our King.
I will never know whether or not that woman was an angel, but I will always remember the day my Abba Father taught me a valuable lesson and reminded me to be kind to strangers because some have entertained angels in disguise!
"Do not forget to show hospitality to srangers for some who have done this have enteratined angels without knowing it." Herbrews 13:2
