Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), today I'll be letting you know about something. It's something that God did for me.
I want you to know there are times when I don't get on my knees and pray. Yet, I still pray.
Plus, there are times when I 'talk' to God. This method of conversing, is not really considered prayer. Yet, I do it sometimes.
Every year in the past, I've done things that I had to do, this year.
CHRISTmas cards are written. And, small inexpensive gifts are wrapped. All this is done before the beginning of December.
Then, in the beginning of December, I take the time to go and deliver the cards and gifts to clients and past clients, as part of my work.
Yes, I realize that since I have suffered health problems, my work isn't being done like in the past, but still... I want to be thankful and show love to those who I have done things for. Plus, I do this so people can look to our Lord, for whom we celebrate His birthday, even though we truly do not know what date He was born.
This year, a friend asked why I wanted to do this. You see, knowing that I have nursing care for the abscess that was surgically dealt with, I need to be unpacked, cleaned and repacked. Daily.
My response to her was that it's in my heart to do this.
Of course, at the beginning of December, here in Windsor, Ontario, we don't always have snow, yet. Unlike some other parts of Canada. But, there are times when we do get snow at this time of year.
No matter the situation, I knew I had to begin doing what I needed to do.
I prayed and/or asked God to help me. And, to not let snow happen here, until after I had completed the work I feel I need to do.
Did He do this for me? Did He prevent snow from happening?
Yes. And, no.
We did have snow for a few minutes one day. But, it didn't stay. At least not in my area.
However, after I finished the work I planned to do, we had snow.
So much snow, that it caused our streets to be plowed. People needed to shovel their driveways and sidewalks. And, so much snow that with this now cold weather, it is still with us. It hasn't left.
This meant to me, that God answered my prayer. He had not allowed the snow to happen, before I finished doing what I needed to do.
He knew it would be difficult for me if it had snowed. Especially, since I'm suffering with my health problem.
Thinking of this, brought to mind Psalm 55:22, "Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved."
By praying, and by speaking with Him, I had cast my burden upon the Lord. He sustained the weather... and, helped me do what I felt I needed to get done.
For this, I am thankful.
And, always will be.
Thank You, Lord!
Until next time...
