God's Blessings in Disguise

Today's post comes to us via an email received and I hope you enjoy the sweet story as much as I did.
A woman was at work when she received a phone call that her small daughter was very sick with a fever.  She left work and stopped by the pharmacy to get some medication.  She got back to her car and found that she had locked her keys in the car.

She didn't know what to do.  She called home and told the baby sitter what had happened.  The baby sitter told her that the fever was getting worse.  She said: "You might find a coat hanger and use that to open the door."

The woman looked around and found an old rusty coat hanger that had been left on the ground, possibly by someone else who at some time had locked their keys in their car.    She looked at the hanger and said: "I don't know how to use this."
She bowed her head and asked God to send her HELP.  Within five minutes a beat up old motorcycle pulled up ridden by a bearded man who was wearing an old biker skull rag on his head.   The woman thought: "This is what you sent to help me?"  However, she was desperate.  She was also very thankful!
The man got off of his cycle and asked if he could help.   She said: "Yes, my daughter is very sick.   stopped to get her some medication and I've locked my keys in my car. I must get home to her.  Please, can you use this hanger to unlock my car?"
He said: "Sure."  He walked over to the car, and in less than a minute the car was opened.    She hugged the man and through her tears she said: "Thank You SO Much!  You are a very nice man."
The man replied: "Lady, I am NOT a nice man.  I just got out of PRISON yesterday.   I was in prison for car theft."
The woman hugged the man again and with sobbing tears cried out loud: "Oh, thank you God! You even sent me a Professional!"
Is GOD good or what!!??

Isn't this cute scenario the truth?  Sometimes God answers our prayers in ways that you and I never would have imagined.  His timing and answers are always perfect.

Thank you M. for sending this email and allowing me to share. 

P.S., How has God answered your prayers lately?  Was His answer the one you were looking for or 100 times better?
