Lord, I need you!
I’m sending this correspondence to the LORD hoping and praying that He will move on your hearts to give.
The last two days, I had a free room; earned through hotel points for paid hotel stays; thanks to YOUR donations, PARTICULARLY THE “DONATION FOR A NEEDY FAMILY!” The last time we met, I was so very thankful for all the amenities, (even the small ones) until I got checked into the room. The toilet would not flush, the heat didn’t work and their response was, “Maintenance does not work on weekends.”
So my Son and I stayed in the room, asked for extra blankets and wore three layers of clothes to get us through the night. For me, it was difficult, but I prayed and I heard, “Turn on the shower or boil some water.” So, I did and the room warmed up; enough that we were able to move about and focus on ministry.
Meanwhile, the microwave started beeping, (for over an hour) and it was sending all kinds of messages, “Keypad needs service soon, reset clock, push start, etc.” However, we could not get the microwave to follow any of the commands. I called the Front Desk Clerk and again I was told, “Maintenance does not work on weekends!” So I asked if she could speak to management to resolve the issue—perhaps move us to another room with heat and a working microwave.
The Front Desk Clerk responded in about thirty (30) minutes and approved the move. But by the time she called back, the beeping stopped even while the messages on the keypad were still rolling rapidly and repeatedly, “Keypad needs service soon!”
So, we moved to the neighboring room, we got settled in and I began cooking. I noticed some things were missing, so I asked my Son to get permission to go back into the other room. He did, but could not find anything. I continued to cook and realized, he had to have overlooked something. So I asked to go back to the room.
The first Front Desk Clerk was a Black Woman. At the shift change, it was a Hispanic Woman; the one we met the night before who gave us blankets. She admitted, “It is cold in here, I’ve had to work in my jacket all night because we have no heat downstairs.” This was the night of the beginning of the cold rain and snow.
Meanwhile, as the second Clerk came to open the door, the first Clerk came up behind her to warn her. You know what it’s like when you interrupt a conversation and the person in the middle is trying to listen to both sides? The second Clerk was knocking on my door to open the neighboring room for me. I opened the door and I heard the first Clerk say, “No!” However, while observing her I followed through anyway. I went to the neighboring room per my request and got my sea salt out of the cabinet where it was left behind. I showed it to both Clerks and thanked them and returned to my room. In route, the Black Clerk said to me, “Don’t be forgetting nothing else! We ain’t going to keep coming up here!”
I paused, I turned and I remembered Christ! . . . I said to her, “My Son and I have special diets; his because of Cancer and my diet because of a stroke. I’m sorry, I’ve been forgetting things . . . this has been a stressful day. Goodnight!”
Not one hour later, while we were eating dinner, I got an e-mail from management stating . . .
“Thank you for choosing to stay at the Suburban Extended Stay Hotel. Unfortunately I will not be able to honor any future reservations. I will be placing you on our do not rent list.”
Savior, God! . . . I was totally flabbergasted! This is the same hotel I stayed at for one (1) year, (or more). The same problem occurred; the thermostat was not working in our room during the snow. They had a black out in the city for three (3) days and the hotel was without power as well. We all were there in the dark; no heat and everyone had to cook outside on the grill, (in the snow).
So, the next day I checked out. I called the hotel umbrella and told them about my experience and insisted they return my points earned for my stay. They did and I moved to another hotel. This one was enormous, each room was a suite. My Son and I was delighted . . . Another free night, another complimentary breakfast, a place to clean our laundry, a hot bath! This time we went to the room, checked the thermostat . . . It worked! Praise God! I heard it come on and I set it up high!
So we went on about our day; ministry, laundry, etc. We did the wash, sat in the lobby and worked on our computers; me applying for jobs and my Son his ministry work. So our day ended about 7pm and we returned to the room for dinner. The room was freezing! I was totally puzzled! I went to the phone to call the front desk, but the phone did not work. I went back down to the Front Desk Clerk and he said, “I wish you had told me earlier . . . I just moved about 7 or 8 rooms around in the last hour because they did not have heat either! However, there is nothing I can do now because we are at full capacity.”
My response was, “Seriously God?!”
I went back to the room, I turned on the shower and heated up the room. The snow began falling again just after we moved into the hotel. The entire hotel was freezing, even in the lobby . . . again! I told the Front Desk Clerk I needed to use the phone to contact the hotel umbrella again. Again, I requested they return my points because this is just unbelievable!
The following day we checked out, they gave us enough points for two free nights. I booked a reservation for two (2) nights just before we left. This hotel had a pool, a jacuzzi, a gym, complimentary breakfast all for free! Wow! I arrived, began to check in and the Front Desk Clerk demanded I give her a credit card for $150 incidental charged to be returned 3 – 5 business days after checkout. However, at the same time, the guest standing in front of me (a Caucasian male) was not required to pay any money for incidentals. So, I told the lady, that was not mentioned on their website. She still insisted, . . . “I need $150 on a credit card!” I said, I’m going to contact the umbrella and have a conversation about your unwritten policy. My Son asked for it in writing on letterhead and she put it on a sticky!
So we left, called the umbrella . . . Again and asked for the points to be returned again and so here we are . . . but this time I see hope!
I went to an entirely different town. I spent the day reaching out to churches, non-profits, etc. I found a church that would pay first month’s rent and a security deposit if I found a place to live. She instructed me that I have to come in for an appointment at 4pm and wait outside until 5pm to get in because the place where they do intake and assessments is a rented facility. I was also instructed not to come before 4pm, but to be one of the first twenty (20) people because that is all they can see in one (1) week. She said bring identification and proof I am homelessness in THIS AREA. . . You can only get help if you live in our funding area!
I thought, I got enough receipts to verify my homelessness. I also thought, “You won’t pay for a hotel stay, but you will pay for me to have a place. . . I could do that! I just need a job to maintain the place, FIRST! . . . Wait outside in the cold for an hour . . .I can do that too! Just tell me where and I will be there!”
Consequently, I spent the second day calling restaurants in the hotel book and the second restaurant invited me to complete their application online. I talked to the Manager and told her I used to be a Server for over eight (8) years but lost my job because of COVID. She said I sounded like an excellent candidate . . . She would review my application on Thursday and get back to me. I told her I was in a hotel and also offered my e-mail because tomorrow, we don’t have enough money for another day. Furthermore, the hotels are cheaper if you book four (4) days and you earn multiple points; enough to rack up another free nights stay.
Then I found an apartment; an affordable one (1) bedroom apartment within walking distance to the restaurant! How amazing this would be . . . Stability!!!
Now LORD here is my prayer . . . Can I please have this job? Can I please be approved for this place to live? Can you also pay for another four (4) nights (only because its cheaper per day) and I can earn points to stay for a free night because I don’t know how long this process might take. Ultimately LORD, we want this blessing we’ve all been waiting for but it’s cold out here; it’s snowing forecasts all of the time and we don’t have a car to sleep in anymore!
LORD most of all, BLESS ALL THE PEOPLE PRAYING FOR US AND HELPING US! THEY MEAN EVERYTHING TO US!!! WE WANT YOU TO BLESS THEM PRESSED DOWN, SHAKING AND RUNNING OVER!
WE NEED YOU RIGHT AWAY LORD! WE NEED YOUR RESOURCES . . . PLEASE HELP US TO MAINTAIN BECAUSE YOUR SHELTERS DON’T WANT TO TAKE IN A MAN WITH A DISABILITY AND HIS MOTHER IN THE SAME ROOM. LORD, YOU KNOW YOUR SON CAN’T LIVE INDEPENDENTLY BECAUSE YOU MADE HIM AND I KNOW IN MY HEART, YOU DON’T MAKE MISTAKES!
HIS CEREBRAL PALSY IS NOT A MISTAKE AND NEITHER IS HIS CANCER! HE LOVES YOU WITH A GRATEFUL, ABUNDANT AND PASSIONATE LOVE; AN AGAPE LOVE THAT CAN COME ONLY FROM ABOVE!
I LOVE YOU LORD . . . IN ALL THAT I GO THROUGH; ALL THE SUFFERING, ALL THE PAIN AND ALL OF THE LACK! THANK YOU FOR TRUSTING US WITH ALL OF THIS SUFFERING . . . NOTHING CAN COMPARE TO YOUR LOVE AND SUFFERING ON THE CROSS FOR US!
IN JESUS NAME WE PRAY . . . AMEN!
