It was about eight o’clock p.m when her son who was asthmatic developed some complications. He had to be rushed to the nearest hospital about 1km away or else it would be fatal. She called a neighbor who had a car but the neighbor said the car had no fuel;she called the pastor, who said he had visiting pastors from USA and could not leave them alone. She decided to carry the son to the hospital; she could not imagine loosing her only child with the same sickness that a few months earlier had killed the husband. She had a problem with her leg and could not move fast enough and the son was also heavy for her to move faster. 

Along the way she met people rushing home from work who just starred at her. She tried to beg them for help but they ignored her. She also tried to stop passing vehicles but they never responded. She fell many times but she had to keep moving. Then a man who was mad and used to roam the streets naked noticed her. He came running towards her and took the son from her. She could not talk but just pointed the direction of the hospital. The crazy naked man could understand perfectly well what she meant since he saw the desperate boy struggling for breath. 

He put him on the shoulder and told the woman “all will be well” as he ran towards the hospital. The doctors on seeing the crazy man knew something was really wrong and attended to the boy immediately. Ten minutes later the mother arrived and the doctor broke the news “if he was brought five minutes later than that he would have died” The mad man is long dead and the woman too died some years back but the boy now a man today owns one of the biggest private hospitals. The hospital offers free asthma treatments. 

God doesn’t have to use Bishops, Pastors, politicians and rich people with cars, to rescue or bless you. No matter what may come your way, no matter what you are going through, your life is in his hands and I know you will make it. For there’s a friend in God who will wipe away your tears.

Have a beautiful day ahead! *much love*
