Praising Him

I of course was snooping through blogs the other day, and I found this one on Kylah's friend's page. I believe that God wanted me to read this blog, like it was meant, just for me. Read on.

We moved from Petersburg, VA to Killeen, TX in 1983. We had not yet sold our home back in VA and were renting in Killeen - so two house payments, plus a son in college and two sons in Christian school, and I had not yet gone to work. I prayed and prayed that we would hear our home had sold, but nothing. One morning while praying, it was so clear to me - not an audible voice, but definitely words that I knew came from God, telling me that He heard me, He was NOT deaf, did not even have a tad of a hearing problem and starting that day I was supposed to praise Him for the selling of our home. It hit me right in the heart and I immediately started praising the Lord because I knew I had heard from the Lord. Later that day our realtor called to tell us that he was taking someone to look at our house and I KNEW without a doubt those people were going to buy our home in VA. You know the answer - they bought. Just remember God does hear, has perfect hearing and we only have to ask, trust and believe. Too simple??? Psalm 6, verse 9 - "The Lord hath heard my supplication; the Lord will receive my prayer."

God spoke to me, and said that just like this lady begain praising God in the selling of her home, that I was to begin praising God for bringing my husband to me. I never thought of it that way, but I have completely been acting like God is deaf and hasn't heard my cries! I am such a sinful, human being. So that's what I've begun to do, and will keep doing..praising, trusting, and believing.

Mine came the moment I stopped looking and just surrendered my desires to God. When Lennon and I broke up for good, I literally threw my hands up in the air and told God, "I give up." And I meant it this time.

About 3 weeks later, I met Aaron.

LoL. No, not literally. It sure is sad, though.

You and me both, Girlie! I needed that just as much, I think. Especially after the conversations we've had through email lately! Thanks for sharing!
