Answered Prayers

I’m not quite sure how to start this post. I’m so overwhelmed by the blessings poured out on my family. We don’t deserve any of them.

I can’t emphasize that enough.

You know that my relationship with my Savior has been hot and cold (mostly cold) my entire life. I’ve “turned the burner back on” and find myself seeking his face more and more throughout my day.

Despite this, God continues to faithfully answer my prayers and bless me with his presence.

My husband and I prayed for God to allow us an opportunity to serve others. Guess what… we have THREE instances this weekend where we’ll be serving friends in need.

We prayed for financial peace and ease from stresses due to my lack of a summer paycheck. Guess what… I had a handful of income opportunities throughout the year open for me within this past week.

God hears us. He listens. He desires to bless his children and all we have to do is ask.

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, he hears us.    1 John 5:14

One of my favorite hymns is called “Why Me?”. I really suggest you listen to it. There’s a great Johnny Cash version.

The lyrics read as one person asking God why he blesses them when they have done nothing to deserve it. I’ll post the lyrics below:

Why me Lord
What have I ever done
To deserve even one
Of the blessings I’ve known
Tell me Lord
What did I ever do
That was worth love from you
And the kindness you’ve shown
Lord help me, Jesus
I’ve wasted it so
Help me, Jesus
I know what I am
Now that I know
That I’ve needed you so
Help me, Jesus
My soul’s in your hand
Try me Lord
If you think there’s a way
I can ever repay
What I’ve taken from you
Maybe Lord
I can show someone else
What I’ve been through myself
On my way back to you
I’m overwhelmed and speechless at his amazing grace. I never expected to be blessed so abundantly and so suddenly but, of course, I should have known better than to doubt my God.
I want YOU to be blessed as well. Please let me know how I can pray for you.
