The Helpmate

Two days ago, a lady approached me
at the supermarket
I was with my children
I had picked them from school and
they had asked for an ice cream treat
So we went to the supermarket to get
The lady said “Good afternoon sir, I
don’t know if you can help a young man
get a job
He is hardworking, honest, and very
down to earth
He can drive, work in a supermarket like
this or do any other thing you have in mind…
I said, “He can drive?”She said yes
So I gave her my phone number
I told her to give it to this young man
The young man called me an hour later
We talked
I asked someone to do a background
check and another to interview him
He came out quite clean
I gave him a job as a driver, with a
very good pay
He resumed this morning
At about 2 pm, he drove me to the
I needed to pick up some things
Guess who came tome in tears?
It was the lady
She said “God bless you sir, thank
you for helping my fiance with a job,
he is a very good man and will be a
blessing unto you”
I said Amen.
When is your wedding?
I asked her
She said we should have
gotten married since but for his lack
of a good jobThe date we are looking
at now is August 28, 2021
This job is all we need to make it happen
I prayed with her and wished them well
When I got back to the car, I asked if
he knew how blessed he was to have
such a lady in his life
He said “Sir, I would have died of suicide
if not for her
She is my younger sister’s friend
One day, after several years of frustration
and failure at every turn, I decided it was
time to end it all
I took some poison and
was already vomiting some blood in our
sitting room
She came to check if my
sister was home and stumbled upon me
in that state
She dragged me by herself out of the
house and shouted until she got help
She rushed me to the hospital and prayed
until I survived after three cold days
Since that time she became my family
She led me to Christ
She shared her salary with me every
month (Equally)and helped me until i
got back on my feet
I got a job somewhere in Simawa about
six months ago
The job was very demanding and risky
I took it because I don’t want to be idle
Since that time she had taken it upon
herself to get me a better job and she
succeeded two days ago I am very
grateful sir and i know i owe her
I listened to him patiently, praying that
he would always remember the role she
played in his life as he rises steadily to
the top.
My wife played the same role in my life
in 2012
That was how I got my first job
May God bless all the glorious women
who go out on a limb to support, help,
grow with and build with their spouses
