Some of life's greatest blessings- answers to prayer!
That was the really short story...you can go back to forever ago posts and maybe see the story, but Wow is all I can say to how the Lord has continued to answer the desires and the needs. That one huge prayer request pushed our family together to pray specifically and detailed for our desires. Granted a van was a need too, but not the type of van, color, and luxuries! That was completely extra! Since then we have prayed specifically for matching couches (which we paid $120 for two beautiful micro-sued couches at a yard sale last summer), kitchen table, siding, a truck for daddy, and many, many other things! I am so thankful that God taught me in my impatience and desire to HAVE what I wanted to WAIT, run to His throne, and patiently wait for His timing! Such a great God we serve!
Once recent prayer request that I had been praying for was a few wreath forms that I could decorate differently for different seasons. I know, silly you may think! Well, it's the little desires too that Jesus cares so much about. Guess what? He gave me 3 for under $3 for all 3 of them! I am so excited.
A huge recent answer to prayer has been a good doctor for me and this sweet little peanut within me! It was such a difficult search, but God knew all along that He simply wanted me to wait, and patiently look to Him for clear direction! Long story short I actually had a sweet doctor call me and beg me to come to her office!! Pretty sweet, and unbelievable! They even opened early so I could get in last week! I was so excited to go and LOVED the doctors! Thank you, Lord for reminding me to run to you instead of worrying and "fixin' it" myself!
What prayers has He answered for you and your family lately? Even the shoes for your little ones or a special toy they have wanted for a long time is important to our Maker!
