So today's prayer is about enduring...to wait...to hold on.
However, over an hour ago - a call from our son proved to be a bit - disheartening. His house burned. There was a house fire and the major damage was his room. He lost everything.
I meet with several women each day and we pray. Today I was running late and quickly added myself the to lot of women and men listening to prayer requests. I did not hear all of them, only the last few and then the one next to me said, "does anyone feel led to pray this am?".
I hesitated for only and moment and began to pray, even though I did not know the requests - but GOD DID.
And, for some reason....I felt the need to pray for PROVISION. And I did. I was unsure of the how and what or why the Holy Spirit brought that to my attention and I even walked away from the room back to my own room and thought..."Lord, who was that for? And then I said, maybe it is for me?".
Tonight - it is 1137 am. And it dawned on me.....Provision....God provides.
I was able to call a sub, seek my Principal via cell phone and let him know I was taking a day off and ......both my Husband and I will drive to see our son in the am -- and provide.
He has savings, not nearly enough to replace his clothing and necessary items to live -- but we, his parents can, provide for him. I admit -- my savings is pretty low -- but as my dear new friend reminded me -- THIS life is temporary and stuff can be replaced.
Every time while in college - when I had a need - God provided. I am grateful and thankful to God that I can help provide for our homeless and shirtless son.....
My thought pattern for prayer this eve was to HOLD on.... and to ENDURE.....and I am going to add in -- to PROVIDE.....
