Today Facebook reminded me of this key date.
Five years ago, I arrived in California. It was a dream- No! It was a prayer answered. Most days,I can’t believe that I really live here.
Last night, I watched the movie, The War Room. It is about asking God to fight our battles through prayers. The beach was just a want not a need. God answered that want. I am humbled by this. It got me thinking of all the prayers he has answered. Here’s some of highlights.
-Eighteen years ago, I went through a divorce, I worried and prayed,”Let my kids be happy.”
– A few months after a divorce, my ex became a paraplegic in a snowmobile accident, as a single mom, with my financial planning business in its infancy, I struggled financially. I know I prayed endless nights just to have enough money to get by and pay for groceries.
-As a single mom, I wanted my kids to go college but didn’t think I would ever have the finances for them to do so.
-Six years ago I became unexplainable sick. I lost about twenty pounds and didn’t know the battle I was fighting was Lyme disease and mold toxicity.
-Five years ago, I wanted a better quality of life to live life with a chronic disease and to be near my daughter who was going to be attending college in California.
– For the last eighteen years, I prayed for a husband, a companion.
So how did God answer?
He answered in HUGE ways!
Today Jake is an engineer in Chicago and Tarah is finishing college in New York.For the most part, both are happy.
Financially, we survived as a family, even though the year of the accident, I only made roughly ten thousand dollars. God provided for me and my children, day by day, just like manna from the sky for the Israelites.
He provided the dream and moved me to the beach so even with a chronic illness, I can walk everyday . For that I am so grateful. I may not completed healed from Lyme disease but am stronger, healthier, and enjoying swimming, yoga and playing pickleball. Heck, I’m even get some of my sassy pants personality back.
And about the husband… I finally have met someone …. PSYCHE!
NOT YET ! It IS coming !
God is not tired yet of me asking for the husband! He likes hearing from me and YOU!
God knows my heart and desires and I believe he will answer the small and BIG PRAYERS !
