"God Does Hear Us!"
These were the words from my father, A W "Sam"
Stamnitz,Sr, as he arrived at church to give the Wednesday night
service, many years ago.
Daddy was late for church. Mom was worried. He had no
way to let anyone know he was stranded. He was late from work
because his work truck had broke down, out of town.
It was raining while he prayed to God for help. He told God of
his situation. He was stranded. He could not prepare for
the church service that night.
Daddy said he heard a voice tell him to go down the road a
ways and he would find what he needed.
The "Bible from God"
Daddy got out of the truck and in the drizzling rain he could
see something laying in the middle of the road. He saw the
object as the cars drove by. He walked over and picked up a
Bible. The cover was gone and the top pages were muddy from
cars driving over it. When he picked up, if was open to the
text he was going to speak on.
A Ride, Too
Daddy went back to the truck and began to read. Soon after,
a car came by and stopped and asked if he could help. Dad
asked him for a ride to our church and arrived a little late, a
little wet and muddy, but shouted to the top of his voice, "God does
hear us and He is always there for us."
I Was There
This is a true testimony to us all. If anyone has doubts, I
(daughter) was there to hear my Daddy relate the story. He is
gone now, to be with our Heavenly Father, but he left the "Bible
from God" with me.
