I personally know a village girl who hailed to my previous city of residence from a very remote rural area. There she took shelter in our locality working as a maid servant in the family of a renowned businessman of the city. The businessman was kind enough. As the girl had some basic education and was interested in further study, he encouraged her to continue her studies. The girl with her undaunted spirit continued studies and in due course of time, she graduated from the local college. She has just been selected as a basic teacher in a primary school in my previous city of residence. I got the news yesterday from one of my relatives still now living there and I am so happy to know it. Thanks to almighty God that He still now helps those who help themselves. What do you think about it?

I think that if we have a drive and motivation that there is nothing that we can't achieve in our lives. For me, I've been through a lot of hardships in my life, but I'm able to overcome those things so that I become a better person than I was before those hardships. However, I do tend to believe that if I didn't have the drive that I've got then I wouldn't be able to be the strong person that I am today.

I think this was more about her drive than G-d helping. G-d was there if she failed but she didn't! Brava! I'm proud of her.

That is definite for sure. It is like if you want money and do nothing about it that is what you get, nothing. The girl knows what is good and she goes for it. God lays the path for her.

If someone wants the assistance of God, that person must prove himself/herself that she is worthy of it. However, I believe God does not discriminate on who to help.
