So, as I pulled over to a gas station and got out of the car to go and check my bank accounts to see if money just may have showed up a little early, I was stopped by a familiar voice, that said, "What's Armani?" It was my friend and associate from the Dallas party scene Dre. He was just chilling in his vehicle and we begin to just talk as we usually do. I didn't let him know that I was having trouble or anything. Then, he asked what I was about to do. I told him that I just had a flat and was about to head into the store...and before I could complete the whole statement he asked me if I needed some cash. As much as I wanted to say I didn't I did. He immediately told me to hop in the truck as he traveled to his condo across the street and not only got $40 cash so I could get a tire at 12 midnight, but gave me a spare tire since my car that I got from an auction didn't have one.
We then went back to the gas station and he helped me (with the help of an unknown hispanic guy) take the tire off, which was a very hard task to do because it didn't want to come off.
After that, i realized that God is still in the business of blessing people and that he already has our solution set for us as long as we don't reject the blessing because of who it's coming through. I could have been egotistical and said, "I'm good!" and not taken any of the help he was offering and been a fool. I'm glad that I've matured enough in my life to understand that just because you need help, that you aren't weak or that you aren't a man for needing help. As a matter of fact, it's a sure sign that when help comes as fast as that, that you are truly blessed and favored in the eyes of God and man.
There were 2 things I took away from this. It was a reminder for me that taking the approach of the two-miler is the way to go. For years I took this approach and in recent months I started to abandon this approach. (Matthew 5:41)
The second thing I took away from this was that not only what you give is what you get, but that what you give shall be given unto you, good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, shall men give into your bossom. (Luke 6:38)
Don't stop giving. In the right time and right season, it shall return to you when you need it most.
