So I decide to say a quiet prayer and close my eyes as I pull into the place and realize there are no other cars in the parking lot. Do I begin to worry once again or do I have the faith that Jesus heard my prayer and He won’t leave me nor forsake me.
I hold my breath and quietly walk up to the door and ring the bell sitting on the desk. After a time, no one comes, my mind begins to work overtime, I rang it again. Still silence, then just as I am turning to face the door, I hear a faint voice say, “Welcome sweetheart, would there be one or two?” At that point I was afraid to turn around for fear of what I might see, but I slowly turned and there in front of me was a small woman, reminding me of my grandmother, with a rosary around her neck and a bible tucked up under one arm. I sighed in relief.
I said there is only me. What happened in the next few hours I will never forget. This tiny lady and I talked through the night about Jesus and His miracle working power. She shared with me how her husband had died and she only had what she knew, the Hotel/Motel. I felt such a sense of God’s presence around her and really was sad that the sun came up and I had to be on my way. I felt as if the Lord made this possible. I knew He had given me exactly what I needed that night, hope that He will make all things good no matter how bad they seem and to trust Him through the darkness, there will always be a little light shining where we least expect it.
