“There are times that I still remember the days that I prayed for the things I have now.”
This is not just a popular meme and quote, but it is literally the story of my life. I can recall praying sincerely, fervently, and without ceasing, for all of my favorite things including my husband, children, and even my current career as a stay at home mom. Yes, I prayed for each item until I received them! I prayed for a marriage where divorce isn’t an option, having the three children we desired, the opportunity to stay at home with and homeschool my children, and even for relationship growth within my family and friendships. To look out and see these things occurring is just a true testament to how wonderful God is and how he loves to take care of his children.
I also have a plethora of testimonies where I’ve had to pray over bad, sad, or even terrible situations where God has also provided me with the victory. For example, dealing with miscarriage wasn’t my favorite thing to do, but I am thankful that God strengthened me when I was weak and healed me from the accompanying depression. In the middle of the hurt, pain, and confusion I never thought it would get better but I remained obedient while praying sincerely, fervently, and without ceasing, only to have God come through and get me together.
Another example is dealing with losing friendships but again that was a result of what I call the “Mathematics prayer”. Yes, I am one of those people that seek God in adding people to and removing them from my life. I also ask him to have the people remove themselves. Each time someone disappears, I may feel the cut but eventually, the revealed truth confirms that God had my future and best interest in mind. He is ALWAYS MINDFUL of his children and their future.
I could go on and on about the wonderful and MIRACULOUS power of the Most High God but instead, I will encourage you to sit and remember how good he has been to you. I think that each day on earth affords God opportunity to perform miraculous things including every breath we take in, birds chirping, children laughing, and even healing from hurt. Those miracles also include staying married, breaking the family history and curse of divorce, having a child after dealing with infertility, and even rekindling a relationship with a family member. I encourage you to write down your prayers and miracles as they occur because it will provide a written record for you and a testimony journal to share with your children, family, and friends.
