A dear friend gave me a beautiful pair of earrings a few weeks ago. For the past few days I have been looking for them and while doing so I organized my entire jewelry cabinet and all of my dresser drawers.
Last night after searching everywhere I could think of, I prayed. I prayed I would wake up and know where they were. I thought if I were going to lose something, why these? They are not only pretty, but also special to me because of the beautiful person who sent them to me.
This morning after having coffee, I thought about the earrings. I thought maybe they could be in one of my blue jeans pockets in the laundry basket. I was sidetracked all morning by phone calls, and the internet. I waited all morning and much of the afternoon before looking under the bed and everywhere else I could think of except the one place I had in the back of my mind from this morning.
Finally, I went into the laundry room and found the jeans,searched the pocket, and there they were! I was really not surprised, and I should have known they were there since the moment I had the thought early this morning. I was thankful.
I am reminded today, when we ask God to provide us with answers, we have to listen. We should not ignore what he is telling us. When we hear his answer we have to follow through and be grateful. God does answer prayer, big and small.
Matthew 21:22 “And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.”
Have a great weekend!
