God knows where we are
By: Live the Promise
Do you ever feel like no one really cares about you? God always knows where we are and He cares for you deeply.
Susie recounts the testimony of an author named Ken Gaub. One day, he was traveling with his family. They were on a road trip and decided to stop at a restaurant.
Ken’s wife and children went right into the restaurant while he stretched his legs. As he walked past a nearby gas station he heard a payphone ringing, the phone kept ringing, and Ken thought it might be some sort of emergency. So he answered it.
Ken heard the voice of an operator on the other end of the line say,
“Long distance call for Ken Gaub.”
Ken was incredulous. He said,
“You’ve got to be kidding me. I was just walking in the middle of nowhere and heard this phone ringing.“
The confused operator said,
“Is Ken Gaub there?”
After making sure there weren’t any candid cameras he responded,
“This is Ken Gaub.”
Then the voice of woman rang through the pay phone.
“My name is Milly, I’m from Harrisburg Pennsylvania. You don’t know me but I need your help.”
Milly went on to explain that she just written a suicide note, but in desperation gave prayer one more shot.
“She said, God I really don’t want to do this. As she prayed, she remembered seeing Ken Gaub on television.”
Milly thought that if she could just talk to Ken, maybe he could help. However, this was before the internet, so tracking him down would have been extremely difficult.
Then, as she prayed some numbers popped into her head.
“She wrote them on a piece of paper, she couldn’t help but think wouldn’t it be wonderful if God were giving me Ken’s number?”
Milly tried calling the number and couldn’t believe it when the operator put her through to Ken.
Ken walked away from that phone booth with an electrifying sense of our Heavenly Father’s concern for each of his children.
