My scripture post this morning on FB was 1 Thessalonians5:16-18 Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
This evening I would need that verse. My son was stuck in another city on a job. He rode up with some others. It was imperative that he be home this evening. Imperative. It looked like he would have to spend another night and his world could be one huge mess because of it.
This evening, he called distraught. I volunteered to drive (9 hours roundtrip mind you) and pick him up. He said no, he couldn't ask me to do that. Mothers out there, you know you would, too. Instead I went down on my knees before God and asked what I should do and what I should say and placed my despair in His hands. God answered so quickly my head jerked.. They would be leaving this evening.. Home by 1:30 am. Praise be to God.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
I am thankful that God listens to even me and answers my prayers.
