Blessed are all they that put their trust in God. Psalm 2:12

We often share techniques to help you recall on a daily basis keeping your mind focused on God. In a tough economy,here is a great technique shared by this couple:

Several years ago, a friend of mine and her husband were invited to spend the weekend at the husband’s employer’s home.

My friend, Arlene, was nervous about the weekend. The boss was very wealthy, with a fine home on the water-way, and cars costing more than her house.
The first day and evening went well, and Arlene was delighted to have this rare
glimpse into how the very wealthy live. The husband’s employer was quite
generous as a host, and took them to the finest restaurants. Arlene knew she
would never have the opportunity to indulge in this kind of extravagance again,so was enjoying herself immensely.

As the three of them were about to enter an exclusive restaurant that evening,
the boss was walking slightly ahead of Arlene and her husband. He stopped
suddenly, looking down on the pavement for a long, silent moment. Arlene
wondered if she was supposed to pass him. There was nothing on the ground
except a single darkened penny that someone had dropped, and a few cigarette
butts. Still silent, the man reached down and picked up the penny. He held
it up and smiled, then put it in his pocket as if he had found a great treasure.
How absurd! What need did this man have for a single penny? Why would he even
take the time to stop and pick it up?

Throughout dinner, the entire scene nagged at her. Finally, she could stand it
no longer. She casually mentioned that her daughter once had a coin collection,
and asked if the penny he had found had been of some value. A smile crept
across the man’s face as he reached into his pocket for the penny and held it
out for her to see. She had seen many pennies before! What was the point of this?

“Look at it.” He said. “Read what it says.”

She read the words “United States of America.”

“No, not that; read further.”

“One cent?”

“No, keep reading.”

“In God we Trust?”



“And if I trust in God, the name of God is holy, even on a coin. Whenever I
find a coin, I see that inscription. It is written on every single United
States coin, but we never seem to notice it! God drops a message right in
front of me telling me to trust in God. Who am I to pass it by? When I see
a coin, I pray, I stop to see if my trust IS in God at that moment. I pick
the coin up as a response to God; that I do trust in FULLY in God.

“For a short time, at least, I cherish it as if it were gold. I think it is
God’s way of starting a conversation with me. Lucky for me, God is patient
and pennies are plentiful!”

When I was out shopping today, I found a penny on the sidewalk. I stopped and
picked it up, and realized that I had been worrying and fretting in my mind
about things I cannot change. I read the words, “In God We Trust,” and had to

Yes, God, I get the message. It seems that I have been finding an inordinate
number of pennies in the last few months, but then, pennies are plentiful! And
God is patient…
