There are certain things others in our lives are able to help and assist with, but other events – not so much. GOD KNEW SHE WAS GOING TO NEED ME HERE. God knew the prayers I would need to pray with and over her. He knew, and I am grateful.
I am grateful for another reason. Hurricane Matthew. It is hitting Haiti right now, as I write this post. I was planning on being just sixty miles from the inland border of Haiti, in an effort to learn more information for future medical missions in the area. And I’m not. Why? Because I had a strong sense God did not need me to go, just yet, RIGHT NOW, this week. Thankfully I listened (although it was very difficult for me to do so with my excitement for the opportunity), and chose to stay home for the sake of my family and close friends. Please keep the entire area in your prayers!
Finally, I am grateful because He is really moving in my life. Last week was, I’ll just say, one of the worst weeks I’ve had in a while. It kind of stinks to admit it, but I felt so horrible and felt like I was stumbling and fumbling all over the place. Fear of moving forward has been trying to rear its ugly head (and some odd things reinforcing it), but a prayer request to a friend and a response from God moments later (Psalm 91):
The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me.
I will protect those who trust in my name.
15 When they call on me, I will answer;
I will be with them in trouble.
I will rescue and honor them.
16 I will reward them with a long life
and give them my salvation.”
We can trust Him, He IS faithful and His perfect love will forever cast out fear! I’m thankful He has brought amazing women into my life I can reach out to and be REAL with. I’m grateful we pray WITH and FOR one another. I’m grateful for what He’s done, what He’s doing and what He will do!
