Today’s Bible study with my ladies was truly amazing. I don’t know how to do it justice in a blog, but I will share a small story from the time I spent there this morning to give you an idea of how it went. We are a praying group and we have been seeing mighty answers to our prayers–mostly the answers involve changing us, the pray-ers, but that is blog for another day. Today I would like to share an answer God brought to Barb. It was such a Barb way of answering that it made me smile–BIG!
Barb was sharing high tea with her daughter, Samantha, in another ladies group. The 4th course was a tray of desserts prepared for each woman. Amongst the cookies, brownies and small candies a gingerbread man was placed. When Barb got her tray, the gingerbread man had a broken left leg. Barb has been praying for her husband’s brother for weeks. He had his left leg amputated and was on dialysis. Barb was praying for healing even though he was not doing well at all. Because of the gingerbread man’s broken left leg, Barb thought about Gerald and she said a prayer for him right then and there. After the tea was over Barb received a call from Gerald’s wife.
Barb, Barb, you will never believe this! This morning the dialysis team told us that Gerald will no longer require dialysis. It seems that his kidney function is returning to normal. It is amazing.
Barb told her it was a miracle and that God had told her in the middle of her high tea that something had happened to Gerald. She thought it strange that the servers would serve her a broken cookie at such a prestigious event, but she knows that, with God, there are no accidents. The server delivered the cookie with the broken left leg to the right person at the right time. It was a message from God to Barb delivered to her in the midst of her busyness, but she “got the message,” slowed and became a part of the miracle.
And so, My Friends, be on the alert. He is moving. He is speaking.
He is with us,
