Happy Friday Team!
I hope you are doing well and staying safe. As this week comes to an end, I cannot contain the pure joy I experienced this past week.
I will be the first to admit, my week started out very stressful. A call from a family member who never phones me at night, caused my body to tense, but I answered the phone dreading that someone had passed away. Instead, I learned my closest and only living uncle had been rushed to the emergency room. My cousin, his daughter, was in such a state she could barely talk. When I heard her say, the doctor says he may not make it through the next hour if they don’t do emergency surgery, and he couldn’t promise that the surgery would do any good, I went into a state of panic.
I am sure I don’t have to tell you that I had a sleepless night. I prayed in desperation throughout the night, in addition to be the one who would update all other family members. When I woke Tuesday morning to the news that his surgery was successful, I was so thankful to God. He blessed him to live and to see another birthday on Tuesday!
I have always believed in miracles. I have witnessed them repeatedly throughout my life. Geez, when I consider my life, I am one. But I also believe in prayer. Prayer changes things. The Word of God says in James 5:16,“Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availed much” (KJV). I know that I am not perfect, but I am righteous through Christ. That means I try to live my life in an upright manner with moral standards that reflect my relationship with Christ. Yes, by nature, there is none righteous, no not one. But through God’s saving grace, I make the cut.
What are you praying for today? What is making you feel anxious or desperate? Whatever it is, I want to encourage you to keep praying and continue to trust that God hears your heart’s cry. Also, believe in miracles because He will show you He still performs them.
