To be truly a Tool of God all you need to do is follow your heart

Found this story on Facebook and it appears to be posted by a John A. Pasko on April 8, 2012.  It has been reduced for brevity but I hope all who reads this get the gist.  “I was walking around in a Big Bazaar store shopping, when I saw a Cashier talking to a boy couldn't have been more than 5 or 6 years old...  The Cashier said, 'I'm sorry, but you don't have enough money to buy this doll. Then the little boy turned to the cashier and asked: are you sure I don't have enough money?''  Finally, I walked toward him and I asked him who he wished to give this doll to. 'It's the doll that my sister loved most and wanted so much. I wanted to Gift her for her BIRTHDAY.  I have to give the doll to my mommy so that she can give it to my sister when she goes there.' His eyes were so sad while saying this. 'My Sister has gone to be with God... Daddy says that Mommy is going to see God very soon too, so I thought that she could take the doll with her to give it to my sister...''  I told daddy to tell mommy not to go yet. I need her to wait until I come back from the mall.' Then he showed me a very nice photo of him where he was laughing. He then told me 'I want mommy to take my picture with her so my sister won't forget me.' 'I love my mommy and I wish she doesn't have to leave me, but daddy says that she has to go to be with my little sister.' Then he looked again at the doll with sad eyes, very quietly...  I quickly reached for my wallet and said to the boy. 'Suppose we check again, just in case you do have enough money for the doll?''  The little boy said: 'Thank you God for giving me enough money!'  Then he looked at me and added, 'I asked last night before I went to sleep for God to make sure I had enough money to buy this doll, so that mommy could give It to my sister. He heard me!'' 'I also wanted to have enough money to buy a white rose for my mommy, but I didn't dare to ask God for too much. But He gave me enough to buy the doll and a white rose. My mommy loves white roses.'  I remembered a local newspaper article two days ago, which mentioned a drunk man in a truck, who hit a car occupied by a young woman and a little girl. The little girl died right away, and the mother was left in a critical state. The family had to decide whether to pull the plug on the life-sustaining machine, because the young woman would not be able to recover from the coma. Two days after this encounter with the little boy, I read in the newspaper that the young woman had passed away... I couldn't stop myself as I bought a bunch of white roses and I went to the funeral home where the body of the young woman was exposed for people to see and make last wishes before her burial.  She was there, in her coffin, holding a beautiful white rose in her hand with the photo of the little boy and the doll placed over her chest. I left the place, teary-eyed, feeling that my life had been changed forever”. 


So continue, if you wish to believe, that God does not answer your prayers because he does, it’s just we are sometimes so caught up in our own selfishness that those he sends to answer we stop from answering.  This person did not know that this was going to happen to them that day nor did they figure on touching the lives of so many more but that is exactly what they did and will continue to do as long as this story keeps being told.  What will be your story, will you allow God in and be his tool of goodness by following your heart or are you so set in your ways that only following your desire to belong and wallet more important?
