According To...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I discussed how LwL was being featured on Sisters For Souls Women's Ministry (SFS) radio programme.

As I mentioned yesterday, I feel blessed that God is using me and my writings to honour and glorify Him, while doing everything possible to lead the unsaved to Christ, and lift up those who are in need of encouragement.  Thank You, Lord!

I must tell the truth, though.  It wasn't easy for me to learn how to record audio files.

To say I prayed about it over this past week, is an understatement.

My mind was boggled.  I could not think straight.  Even after having those friends respond to my need to find out what to do!

There was actually a couple of days when I couldn't even think about what it was that I needed to do.  I just prayed.  And, prayed.

As time grew close, I knew I had to get moving.  I knew I had to accomplish what I had set out to do, and what God had provided for me to do, for Him.

I trusted Him.

I trusted Him to provide for me.  To help me in any way possible.  And, He did!

Even after I was able to record LwL's entry on an audio file, there was still more to do.  And, I had trouble doing what needed to be done.

After feeling frustrated, I began praying, once again.

I asked God to provide for me.  And, He did!

Even though I wasn't a hundred percent (100%) calm, I took a deep breath and returned to my computer. 

Feeling that I needed to e-mail my friend J's husband A, I opened my e-mail.  To my surprise, A was on his computer.  The green light showed on Google Chat.

Be still my heart! 

Before I even began chatting with A, I was thankful that God had answered my prayer.  And, I thanked Him, aloud! 

I knew in my heart that things would be okay.  After all, God promised to always provide for us.

Just as we read in Philippians 4:19, "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus."

Truthfully, no one should be surprised when God supplies a need.  Not even me.

But, the fact remains... when God answers our prayer, we are happy.  Thankful.  And, sometimes surprised.

After all, He doesn't answer each and every prayer the way we would like Him to.  There are times, when His response represents... no. 

And, there are other times, when we hang on, and on, and on, waiting for an answer.  Our waiting with no response, is representative of God possibly saying... maybe, and letting us know that we need to hang on, and wait.

So, when I say I was thankful, I truly mean it!

Thank You, Lord! 

Of course, this is just the beginning of my learning.  There has already been messages letting me know where improvements can be made.  With encouragement, of course!

While I have a headache from being overwhelmed, I know that He will not let me down.

And, He won't let you down, either.  Trust in Him, and lean not unto your own understanding.  He will supply all your need.


Until next time...
