The Stranger At The Door

The Little Voice Warning Me!

This happened 22 years ago when my daughter was 3 and my son was 2. I was a stay at home mom, while my husband had a full-time job and worked part-time throwing newspapers in the early mornings. One morning while my husband was out I heard the doorbell ring. Now this happened around 5:00 AM and it was still dark outside. As I approached the door a little voice in my head told me not to open it. I spoke through the door. On the other side was a woman who told me she had ran out of gas and needed to use the phone. I could see her car as I looked out the window.
I was still hearing that little voice telling me don’t open the door. I told her why don’t you give me the number and I will make the call for you? She began to get angry and said this is a long distance call. I could not understand why that mattered, I could have still made the call for her but she didn’t want me to. Her anger was growing I could hear it in her voice. Then she said, “Just give me some change so I can go use a pay phone.” All kinds of thoughts were going through my head by this time. I was thinking about my little children in the other room and the voice was telling me don’t open the door. She then said sarcastically, “If you are scared then I will stand on the sidewalk and you can put the change on the porch.” that didn’t make me feel comfortable because I didn’t know if someone else might be with her. I felt there could be someone standing by the door knowing they could force their way into the house.  As I continued hesitating and peeking through the window I saw her and a man walk back and enter into the car. The next thing I saw made my heart skip a few beats. The man started the car which was supposed to be out of gas and drove off. I was so thankful for that little voice warning me of danger. I am not sure what would have happened that early morning but I can just imagine how terrible it would have been had my husband came home and found his family lifeless. I know I have been very fortunate in my life and I am thankful that in times of trouble the Lord has never abandoned me. I know my purpose for life was not done and I was being molded to serve him.
I am thankful for the experiences I have had and the lessons I have learned.
God Bless Each of You and Learn From Others!
