The Blessings of Miracles

As most of you know, my husband is battling cancer at the moment. It is a long hard road to walk and not all roses at all. Having said that I would like to share with you a few of the things that God has blessed us with in the past few weeks.

I had asked some of my friends if anyone had a bicycle that they would be willing to loan to me as I felt the need to use it for exercise but also for the pure enjoyment of riding a bike with the wind blowing in your hair.

A friend stepped up and said, yes as a matter of fact, you could loan mine as I am unable to use it at this time. I was so excited and raced over to get it. I had such fun riding it that I had asked the Lord for a bike of my own. Well after two weeks she needed the bike back and I was disappointed but I gave it back and asked the Lord again in a more of a whining tone for a bike of my own. I then forgot about my request as I had gotten busy with life.

Well, about a week ago, I was on the phone with a friend when the doorbell rang and when I went down to see who was there, I found a brand new bicycle on my deck with a Card attached to my window, with my name on it.

The giver had not put their name into the card, but had put the bike on my porch and left. To say that I was stunned, overwhelmed and completely excited would not even begin to describe my emotions at that time. I was ecstatic. I couldn’t believe my gift.

Then the lord reminded me that I had asked him for my own bike and he had now provided. It was not important who gave me the bike, but what was important was that, they obeyed and that I received what I had asked for from the Lord!

I was truly thankful and grateful and completely floored at the extravagant gift. I am still shaking my head at the whole thing.

I learnt another valuable lesson that day, God hears my prayers, even when I think he might not be listening, and not only does he hear my prayers, but he delights in answering them in the most unusual ways.

I am most humbled at the gift and so very thankful to whoever heard the Lord and spent their money to answer a prayer between God and myself. Wow!

Brothers and sisters in the Lord, God answers prayers, it is often not how you think that they should be answered or even how quickly they should be answered but he does answer them and for that I am truly thankful.

Psalm 145:18

The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.

Call on him today, he does hear you, he never leaves nor forsakes you and he will answer you when you call to him.
