I had someone recently tell me they were looking for a sign from God. I told them that He is always faithful and will give them exactly what they need -in His perfect timing!
I know this because He has been so faithful to me.
With no stream in sight, lately I’ve felt like I am walking through a desert. As someone who wears her heart on her sleeve at all times, I’ve cried more in the last week than I have in ages. I HATE to cry. Especially in front of people. It is humiliating, embarrassing, and makes me feel weak. But sometimes I just can’t stop the tears from flowing, and I have stopped fighting it.
I arrived at church Sunday morning, and was sitting at the piano- praying and getting ready to begin our worship practice. As I sat there, I got a text from a friend saying they were praying for me. I responded, letting them know how much their prayers meant to me and to share with them that I had been feeling very “down” this past week.
As soon as did I hit “send” on my response, I saw someone enter the sanctuary- all smiles, and holding a flower. I got up from the piano as she came to the stage.
“God told me to give this to you today!” She had cut the bloom from her yard that morning.
I cried- yes, again, lol– but this time they were tears of joy! It was a gladiola bloom.
“He has made me GLAD,” I said as I hugged her, and in that instant the joy of the Lord flooded my heart.
He is with us, and He shows up in the most wonderful ways!
And always right on time.
For You, Lord, have made me glad through Your work;
I will triumph in the works of Your hands. Psalm 92:4
Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:6-7
