Who's Blessed?

I've said it before, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).  And, I'll say it, again.  I feel truly blessed.

Today, was a day filled with many blessings, for many people.

Way back when, while I still had stitches and a drainage tube and wasn't able to drive, I had to sign up for one of our real estate continuing education courses.  Knowing that I wasn't able to drive at the time, I spoke with a fellow Realtor, whom I've known for many a year.

L let me know that it was not going to be a problem.  She would drive me, if necessary.  At the time, I felt really blessed and thankful, knowing that God had provided for me.

Yesterday, I decided that in case L had other things to do after our course ended, I would drive myself.  We spoke by phone and L was glad to hear I was able to drive, once again.

Later, I thought about how I was going to get the sign off of the lawn of one property.  Hmmm... I knew I couldn't do it, myself.  So, I thought about calling L back, and asking her to assist me.

Last evening we chatted, once again.

She let me know she had car trouble and asked if I could give her a ride.  lol  I let L know that I would be happy to drive her, but let her know I needed her assistance to help remove the sign from the lawn, where it was frozen in the ground.

Please understand, even if the ground wasn't frozen, I do not have the strength, nor the ability to lift it out of the ground.  And, I cannot carry it.  It's more than I can handle, at the moment.

L agreed to help me.  For this, I was truly thankful and let her know.

Arriving at the property to remove the sign, L tried her best to do the task at hand.  She couldn't.  Even though I shouldn't have tried to assist, I did try.  Even with the two (2) of us, we couldn't do it.

I prayed.

Turning around, I saw a mailman walking on the sidewalk, approaching the house.  I praised God for this, calling out to him.

After remarking to him that he looked like a strong man, and asking him for help, he joined us on the lawn.  He made provision for the mail he was carrying, and I held the mail for the next home meant for him to deliver to.

He tried to remove the sign.  And, couldn't.

At least at first.  Once again, I prayed.  All of a sudden, I saw the sign move slightly.  And, commented to that effect.

The mailman tried again, and it became loose in the ground.  Eventually, he managed to lift it out and hand it to L.

Aloud, I praised God!  Thanking Jesus, I handed him back his hand-held portion of mail.  Of course, I thanked him, too!

Talk about feeling blessed!  Not only did I feel blessed, I prayed that God would bless this man, and my friend L, for helping me.

This reminded me of Acts 20:35, "I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive."

Wow!  What started out as L blessing me, turned into me blessing L.  Which once again turned into L blessing me.  And, eventually led to us being blessed by the mailman God provided, just at the right moment!

Talk about God's timing being perfect.  Even my my friend L commented to that affect.  And, she isn't Christian.

It seems to me that between me and one of her adult children who has become Christian, talking with her about God and Jesus, on a regular basis, God is rubbing off on her thinking. 

I praise God for this!  Truly.  And, will continue to pray that it is God's will to save L from an eternity in hell.  And, the mailman also, if he isn't already saved.

Hopefully, you are saved. 

If not, please read the book of John, in the New Testament portion of the Bible.  You will read for yourself, that in order to enter heaven, you must be born-again.  Or saved, as some people say.

I'll be praying for L, the mailman, and for you.   After all, prayer is powerful!

Until next time...
