let your good deeds be done in secret that your Heavenly Father, who sees in secret, may reward you openly...
Be careful what you ask for though...
I had a year with nothing to do but wonder why God had spared me from some stuff that should have killed me 3 times over.
That led to the idea He might have work for me so I asked him. Worked appeared shortly thereafter. More followed. I began to think I was on to something.
One day I asked while passing an expressway ramp. By the next exit there sat the "work". It came in the form of a well dressed drunk standing on a freeway 6 inches from traffic. I knew he was mine because I was an alcoholic of long practice newly sober but needing "work"
The lad had hitched 300 miles that day on his way to bury his mum. He said he needed a bar or liquor store. He had 50 miles to go and could barely stand. I got him home and without adding to his condition.
I believe in a God with a smart ass sense of humor who delights in reminding me he knows me too well.
