Yesterday afternoon I started feeling sick and ended up spending the rest of the day and all day today in bed. But praise God is was only a 24 bug of some sort, and I feel like I am pulling out of it. I dislike most things about being sick, but the one thing I do like is that all always reminds me that I am mortal and God is in control. I can have all my plans laid out, and everything set, but with one little germ He can put me in bed for a day, or a week, or a year.
Last night I prayed that the sickness would only last a day. And that fact that I am feeling almost all better today shows God’s working! It reminded me of a few months ago when Suzy and I had set $1800 aside to make a purchase. We got the money out of the bank and were going to go ahead and spend it on Friday. However, we decided to pray, ask God, and wait to make the purchase till early the next week. On Saturday an unexpected $1800 expense came up. A sign from God? Or last summer I was deciding if I should go on a missions trip to Africa. The trip cost $3400 and I needed to make a decision by a specific Sunday. I prayed God would make it clear if I should go, and the Saturday evening before $3389 dollars came in towards the trip.
All little reminders how God works in so many areas of out life, but we need to ask Him in order to see these blessings. Praise God!
And just so this post doesn’t go without a photo, I took a picture of my floor the night before a wedding! Cleaning lenses, formatting cards, charging batteries, checking equipment! All kinds of wedding prep going on here! =)
