Chat...

There are times when I wonder what God's plan is for my life.  Sometimes, I ask Him, just exactly what I am here for.

Sometimes, when I feel low in spirit, I wonder if I am just here to suffer, until He finally takes me home.  Then, there are other times, when I believe I know exactly why God has me here.

As I've mentioned in the past many times, I still pray each night that God will allow me to fall asleep quickly.  Continuing further, I also request that He not allow me to wake up here on earth the following morning, but rather, I ask that He allow me to wake up in heaven, instead.

I suppose you can tell (lol), that God has not granted my prayer in this regard.  Otherwise, I wouldn't be here writing daily entries in Life with Lynnie!

Last Saturday, was another very hot day.  We've had a heat wave that has taken a toll on me; in fact, it has continued all week!  I awoke feeling rather disappointed that I didn't awake in heaven.

Even so, it didn't take long for me to bounce back.

It's amazing to me how God works.  He knows our need even before we do.  And, He provides for us, always!

After being up a while, I went onto Facebook (FB), to update and do what I normally do.  In case you aren't aware, I am an administrator on FB pages and I do other work for God, there.  In addition to having fun, of course.

Well, in God's wisdom, He provided for me in a way that might seem strange for some, but not for me.

Almost immediately upon opening up FB, a friend chatted me up.  For anyone who is not familiar with FB or with that term, it means that a friend contacted me to chat.  No.  We didn't actually speak, hearing each other's voices. 

What happens is that we type to each other, in real time.  Meaning that my friend comments to me privately, then I respond by typing back.  Yes.  This is a private conversation or chat, where no one else can see it.

It only took a second or two to realize that my friend was rather down in the dumps.

Hmmm...  What did I do?  Well, firstly, I told my friend I would pray for them.  Then, I prayed.  In my mind, at first.  Later, I actually typed a prayer for this friend.

By the time we finished our chat session, it seemed my friend was feeling improved.  I praise God and thank Jesus for this!

I realize that whatever I said or did that made a difference to my friend, didn't come from me.  It came through me, from God.

There's more I need to say about this topic, but it will have to wait, until tomorrow.  Blessings, friends!


Until next time...
