For I have experienced my own little Thanksgiving miracle.
This morning, during my time with The Lord, I was crying out to Him over an individual for whom, an impossible situation about which I have been praying for many months. A war has been waging between my mind and my heart. I was begging for assurance one way or the other, resolution. Let me share a bit of my prayer journal with you.
Lord, I need Your help! I need to know for certain.
Bring me to assurance one way or the other.
[Not the first time I have prayed this prayer! Then suddenly...]
Wow! I just "heard" You!
"Do You trust me?"
"Yes, Lord, I trust You! Help me to trust You more!"
"Then wait on Me."
"Yes, Lord, I will wait.
I'm not patient
and I'm weary and worn,
but I will wait."
From my heart!
And peace washed over me!
Then this morning's sermon.
And waiting for them.
And trusting God.
Then Pastor Wayne said those exact words!
"Do you trust God? Then wait on Him!"
I could almost hear the "Gina" in the question and command!
Finally, this afternoon, I heard a phrase:
"Listen to your mind, but follow your heart."
This is not the first time I have heard God speak.
But it's the first time in more than a year it's been almost audible.
And the last time involved this same individual.
This feels like the same type of miraculous "intervention" that happened to me last year in
San Antonio when I was grieving Al to the point of death.
The San Antonio Miracle I call it.
I continue to miss and love Al, grieve him, but never again to the point of death.
This day holds the same miraculous importance.
Nothing has changed.
I still don't know the outcome.
But I know The One who does!
It has been a good day.
The best in a long, long while!
Because God has spoken.
And I have trusted.
Today, I am grateful for God's Voice!
