As the cars were zooming by the desperate woman on the side of the street, she too wanted to just pass her by. God whispered, "Pick her up and show her my grace." For a second, her mind was tiptoeing towards no and well, she doesn't pick up hitchhikers. She's not into the whole ax murder scenario.
This was uncomfortable, but she remembered telling herself and God that she didn't want to tell Him no anymore. Obeying is of up most importance. She pulled over. She unlocked the door. She let her in...and she listened.
Listened to the woman hitchhiker's story. She didn't have a car (obviously) and she needed to get to her home town about an hour away. She was in this town trying to get a job. She was desperate and had to drop her pride to get a ride.
TRUE STORY...(I am the driver).AND...God asked her, the driver to share a bit of her story and to drive past her destination...farther than she planned because she needed to slow down in order to give grace. She for a moment had stopped racing.
