Do You Hear Me?

Sometimes I know that God is near me.
Sometimes I don't.

Sometimes I feel like my prayers bounce off the ceiling and God simply has forgotten about me.

The past month has been a "God is being quiet month."

I know he is still there.  I know he is still whispering, "Keep walking."
But I can BARELY hear that guy you know!
So, he puts me near people who are seeing their prayers answered, people who are having miraculous things happen in their life.

There is a man in my home church who is in his 60's or 70's.
He just moved into an apartment after living with his daughter and her family for a long time.
When he moved in he had no furniture to speak of save a bed and a few other things.

A week after he moved in the woman next door to him had to go into a nursing home permanently.

The woman's daughter told the man from my home church he could have whatever furniture he needed.
He has a nice chair to sit in now and a kitchen table.  He has a microwave on the way and all the food that was in her pantry and refrigerator is now in HIS pantry and refrigerator.

God is like that.

He is the provider of all that we need.

I hope the woman who is going into a nursing home knows about Jesus.  I think her time to leave this world is very near.

So I will keep walking and waiting for God to answer my prayers.

I need money to go to lunch with a friend I have not seen in a long time.
My kids are going with me too, so they will need to eat.

I'll let you know how that turns out.

Are you listening God?  I'm waiting.
