“And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.” ~1 John 5:15
…and God answered. Today I feel so triumphant. This morning on the drive to work I prayed specifically that God would use me to help someone.
After making some copies during my prep period, I was headed to my room when a student called out to me. I didn’t hesitate when she beckoned me over, but I wasn’t sure she meant me. I did not know the girl. Iheaded her direction and saw that she had a friend with her who was crying. She explained her friend’s dilemma so I invited them to my room.
I won’t go into detail, but let’s just saw I received the opportunity to serve as well as glorify God.
I don’t know why I am so in awe that God knows what is going on with me, cares and hears. But I tell you, I was almost in tears. My road has been a tough one.
As if to confirm that He is indeed listening to me, I received this email today:
I requested to be prayed for a few months ago. How timely this was for me. I was beyond overjoyed! And thankful that He hears!
“O Lord my God, I cried out to You, And You healed me.” ~Psalm 30:2
I had my second surgery two days ago. I entered this one with confidence and unwavering faith. God has been so good to me and I felt no reason to be afraid. He replaced my fear with peace. My faith tank was full.
Father, I thank You for the myriad ways that You’ve blessed and loved me even before I was placed in my mother’s womb. You have always been by my side, in both the dark and light of my life. I thank You for Your presence, patience, peace, parenting, and power. I will praise You continuously until my test turned testimony leads someone to You. Lord, You have been a rock in my most unstable world. You’ve made broken places straight. You have calmed the storm that came without warning. Because of Your strength, my weakness was made perfect. From this pain, You have birthed promise. I will forever worship Your holy name. You are great and greatly to be praised. It is true, there is NO ONE like Jehovah. The great I AM, the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, the Author and Finisher of our faith. How grateful I am to be Your humble servant. Thank You Father for renewing my hope and my life. In the mighty name of Jesus, Amen!
