Remember the old saying? “Lookout for what you pray for, you might get it.” I have been silent on my blogging the past few months just for that reason. I prayed and asked God to PLEASE give me a sign. He gave me a sign so obvious, my life has been changed forever.
I have prayed as long as I can remember. Every night as a child before I went to bed. I prayed before meals, at scout meetings, 4-H meetings and yes even in my public school. Some of you may remember those days when we had God and discipline in schools.
I’m sure God has answered many prayers in my life that I haven’t given Him credit for, but in October, 2017, God reached down smacked me across the face and said, “Now do you hear Me?” Loud and clear.
So now that my prayer has been answered, now what? I really was not prepared for such an oblivious answer. An answer so obvious so clear that I called my wife to find out what she thought would happen if I didn’t follow through. Will God punish me the remainder of my life on this planet? You guessed it. I didn’t want to find out, so I followed what He told me to do.
I was not prepared for how the situation turned out, but I’m following God’s answer. I have turned my life in a whole different direction and I feel His guidance and blessing everyday. I don’t know how this will all end. I don’t know what His ultimate plan is for me. All I know is life has changed, God is good and He will get us where we need to be.
The power of prayer!
