Called... Answered!

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I must admit that yesterday was a very unique day.  At least, for me.

Knowing that it was my deceased husband Gordon's grandson's birthday, I tried to reach him.  I couldn't.  Not even on Facebook (FB).  So, I didn't get to wish him Happy Birthday!  :'( 

Was I shocked?  Yes, but no.  Not really.

In a way, this didn't surprise me.  After all, Gordon's family hasn't really had anything to do with me.  :(

After being online, doing all I could to locate him, I decided that since I couldn't, I needed to be in touch with someone else, whose birthday it also was.

My friend, E was the person I wanted to phone.  It was also her birthday.

We had been friends and lived only a few doors apart when we were young. 

For many years, we had lost track of each other.  However, a friend through FB had given me E's phone number a few years ago.  That happened around the time, when my multiple surgeries began in 2012.

To be honest, I thought I had added E's information and phone number onto my cell phone.  But, it turned out I hadn't.

Then, I e-mailed her... and wished her Happy Birthday

Afterwards, I realized that E doesn't use much time on the internet, and rarely checks her e-mail, so I prayed that God would help me find her phone number.

He did!  I praised Him, for helping me.  And, for answering my prayer!

I must admit, that before He answered my prayer, I felt lost.  I felt sick in my heart that I had misplaced and/or lost E's phone number.

At least, until I prayed and asked Him to help me.  Which, as you know... He did!

Thinking of this, made me think of Jeremiah 33:3, "Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not."

Yes, I called unto Him.  He answered me, and showed me great and mighty things, which I did not know.

Thank You, Lord!

When I was able to phone E, she was surprised to hear from me, again.  Just as I had done on other of her birthdays.

We talked for about an hour.

I must admit, I felt truly blessed.

Not just because E and I spoke and did what we could to celebrate her birthday.  Also, because God had answered my prayer in a positive way.

Why did He hear my prayer?  And, answer it?

Because I am his child.

And, have gained salvation, by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Thank You, Lord!

Does God hear your prayer?  Does He answer you, in positive ways?

Are you His child?

Have you gained salvation the way I have?

Hopefully, so.  Because it's the ONLY way anyone can gain salvation, and become part of God's family.

If you haven't yet done so, please do so, today.  Tomorrow, may be too late.

Until next time...
