If you read Life with Lynnie (LwL) yesterday, you'll know that I wasn't able to go have coffee with my friend, C... and other friends.
Why couldn't I do that?
Well, something happened that truly shocked me.
You see, last week my daughter, B told me that even though I liked taking my granddaughter, A to Sunday school, she was going to do it, herself. And, she did!
B took A to a church near where they live. It was a church I let her know about.
However, on this past Saturday, my daughter B texted me, and let me know that my granddaughter, A wanted to go to Sunday school, where I worship!
This made me feel really good, I must say. However, because I had planned to worship at my friend, C's church family, I felt I couldn't change what I was doing.
C's church group meets at an earlier time, than my church family does, where I normally worship. So, I had told my daughter, B that I would go to meet them at Walkerville Evangelical Baptist Church (WEBC), where I am a member... after I finished worshipping with my friend, C!
By doing this, I arrived in time to be able to attend part of the worship service, at WEBC, where I normally worship. Yes, I sat with my daughter, B! :)
This made me truly happy, I must admit! :)
You see, in the past, B didn't really worship all the time. Rarely, with me.
Even so, I had prayed and asked God to open the door, so that my granddaughter, A would have her mom to take her to worship. And, God did this!
He didn't just answer my prayer in that way, even though I wanted this to happen.
He also provided me with joy... of having my granddaughter wanting to attend Sunday school at WEBC, where I worship! Even though I never prayed for that to happen!
Thinking of this, brought to mind Philippians 2:1-2, "If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,
2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind."
I praise God for providing for all my needs. And, for my family's needs. Always.
I praise God for answering my prayer requests... in ways that are so loving.
I praise God for giving me joy. And, for being likeminded, having the same love, and being of one accord, of one mind.
Thank You, dear God!
Until next time...
