Isn't it beautiful when we see answers to our prayers!!
Not all the time can we visually see our prayers being answered though, but when we have prayed for something specific and it comes into being it is so awesome and is a great thing to share with others.
I have a couple older answered prayers I wanted to share here as well as one very recently.
The recent first.
As you may know I am in the process of writing my fourth self published book, which I work on as I have time. I use the book wright program from blurb. Anyway my lap-top was not connecting to our internet for awhile, so my husband finally had to do some over-hauling on my lap-top. And when he was done some things were missing off my computer. Book wright was one of them! And no matter how I searched on my computer I did not find my book in progress. You can know I was very worried because if I lost the book there was no way I was starting again, I have no time for sure! So I went to God in prayer on this. My husband downloaded the book wright program again and opened it and there was my books!!! Praise the Lord!
Here is another answered prayer. A kind of funny one.
It was just a couple days before my husband was to fly up to Canada with our oldest son, Nathan, who would then be away all summer long. And I planed a trip to town with Nathan before he was to leave. I had only this one day to work with. And during the night I ended up with diarrhea. Like bad diarrhea. And I had an upset stomach too. I announced at breakfast that I didn't see how I could go. I didn't want to give us that easy, but I knew it wasn't wise for me to be going out in that condition.
I decided to lay down for a little nap and see if that would help. Getting up still feeling rough Paul said he would take Nathan instead. I agreed but didn't like that one bit. I was upset that diarrhea would hold me back from this special day with my son! I was like, "No this will not happen". I am going go to God in prayer on this one! So I went in the bathroom on my knees and prayed that God would stop my diarrhea so that I could go and take Nathan to town. So I came out and announced that I prayed and that I was going. Mind you it took a lot of faith. I was being pretty brave. But I was determined. So off we went. I went to the bathroom as often as I could while in town. All went well. And we had a very good time. That afternoon when I got back, my diarrhea started up again and again all night long. Boy was it very obvious as well as very exciting to see what God did for me so that I could go and spend that day with Nathan before he left!! Oh, how He loves me! Praise God for all His goodness!!
Here is a very special answer to prayer that occurred in the late winter/early spring of 2018.
In the early spring of 2017 I had been doing little meetings with the children once-in-awhile. And this particular meeting was caught on video by my younger son Ben. This one contained Clayton and was a complete riot because of him. He was loads of fun in our meeting! As you may know Clayton passed away in April 2017. So this little video holds a lot of memory for us, and is very, very special.
Well time went by and one of our little ones played with the video camera one day. After that time we found certain videos had been deleted and in all appearance the one of our meeting was one of them. Gone. We could never get that back again. You know I was completely heart broken.
On different occasions we determinedly tried to look for it on there, but all with no luck. Finally once when we were talking about it, I got quite worked up about it. Sam said he was going to try once again to look for it. So I told him to wait that I wanted to go pray first. So off to my room I went and I cried out to the Lord that that seemingly deleted video with our son Clayton would reappear back on the video chip. I come out and Sam, who also had been praying, turned on video camera and scanned through the chip again. And guess what there was the missing video!! Praise God who cares about these little things that we care about! Isn't He so good! So of course we lovingly devoured that video several times in a row.
Oh, how I love answered prayed like this! Don't you?
Our God sees. He hears. He cares! Praise God He is good! ( And He can stop diarrhea! )
In Him, Mae
