Through the years, I have learned that whenever something happens in life that I can not control in any way, I turn my fears over to the Lord and I pray over and over and then over again. Most of those times, my prayers were answered just the way that I wanted them. For example, since our wedding day, I prayed night and day for God to bless us with a baby. It took 17 years but He blessed us with our angel, Leighlyn. God is on his own time schedule. He knows if and/or when the time is right for our prayers to be answered. Though I would have been thrilled to have had a baby in 1981, it never materialized until 1997. Looking back, I see that God knew exactly what he was doing.
In 1990, we learned that Daddy had cancer. Our family and I prayed and prayed for Daddy to be healed. Of course, that didn't happen but the prayers that Daddy's family and many friends prayed, gave Daddy almost 5 extra years than what doctors believed that he would have. Five years is so much better than 6 months!!!
A couple of weeks ago, one of the dearest and most important people in my life began having major health problems. I went in to a stupor. All kinds of things went through my mind about what could be causing these major difficulties. I definitely was in no way, ready to lose this person! I prayed over and over, day after day, night after night... Today, the test results came in... My friend is going to be GREAT!!! Turns out that minor things were causing big problems. Now, we know how to correct the little problems which will translate into great health!
Don't forget to pray! He may not answer us right away. But he'll answer them in one way or another!
Thank you, God!!!
