Tuesdays With Gindy/ God Will Take Care of Me

Today on our inaugural post of Tuesdays with Gindy, I would like to share with you a sneak peek of one of our stories over on How to Manage Your Monkey.

This story is a retelling of a story told time and time again by many different storytellers.  I hope you will watch the video, even though, for the most part, it is the same story as the written story.

It is also Taco Tuesday.  As you all know, Glen Bell, a former Marine, invented the taco. He based his taco on an old traditional Mexican meal.  

This meal traces its roots back to the Mexican silver mines where workers would take a tortilla and wrap it around whatever they had on hand, usually leftover beans.

Bell created the hard shell that has become so popular to make it easier to prepare by standing the shells on edge. This meant he could make more tacos per hour and reduce labor costs.  Bell’s lemonade stand became known as Taco Bell. 

Celebrate Taco Tuesday every Tuesday.  Remember the Marine Christmas charity, Toys for Tots, every time you eat a taco.

And now, without further eloquence, is our story, God Will Take Care of Me.  Please watch the accompanying video. 








There is an old story that has been told and retold for many generations.  Of course, it gets enhanced just like a fish story does each time it is told.

One day, the Army Corps of Engineers determined that due to heavy rains upriver, the area below the Hartwell Dam would soon be flooded. This dam is situated on the Savannah River right on the South Carolina/Georgia state line.

An evacuation order was issued and volunteers began helping people in the flood area get to safety.   Old man Simpson was kind of set in his ways, but he was a devout Christian and trusted the Lord in everything. 

Mr. Simpson decided to sit on his front porch and watch the flood waters rise as he prayed, “God, please take care of me.”  The flood waters got closer.

Mr. Simpson kept praying, “God take care of me.”  The flood waters kept rising.  Shortly, an Army Corps of Engineers boat approached and a corporal said, “Git in the boat.”  Mr. Simpson replied, “No, God will take care of me.”

The waters got higher and higher and soon Mr. Simpson was sitting on the roof of his porch and continued to pray, “God, take care of me.”  About that time, a rescue boat from the Iva Rescue Squad approached.  A member of the dive team yelled out, “Get in the boat and we will take you to safety."  Mr. Simpson replied, “No, God will take care of me.”

Later, the waters had risen even higher and Mr. Simpson was sitting on the roof of his house praying when along came a boat from The American Red Cross. The rescue worker yelled out, “Get in the boat and we will take you to a shelter where you can get food and water.”  Mr. Simpson replied, “No, God will take care of me.”

The water rose even higher and Mr. Simpson was standing on his tip toes on top of his chimney praying when a helicopter from the 82nd Airborne out of North Carolina hovered over and lowered  a rope.  A voice came out of a speaker on the helicopter saying, “Catch a hold of the rope and we will fly you to safety."  Mr. Simpson replied, "No, God will take care of me.”

Soon, the water was above Mr. Simpson’s head and he drowned.  He stood before the Lord in heaven and said, "Lord, I trusted you to save me.  Why did you let me drown?"  To which God replied, “I sent you three boats and a helicopter”.








God always answers prayers.  Sometimes the answer we get comes in a completely different form than what we are expecting.  This is a story of just such a case.

    1. Thank you for dropping in and commenting. Too often, we pray and ask God for something. He answers in a way that doesn't seem miraculous, but it really is. God ALWAYS answers prayer.
