Earlier last week Tom and I got up at the crack of dawn to have some prayer time together. As usual, we were both tired, but both excited to spend time with the King. After some chatting about how things were going, we dove into the secret place.
Now I don’t know about you, but me… I’m a human. To be engaged fully with anything in the morning is very hard for me. But that morning was different.
As we offered our lives anew to the Lord, His presence was so strong! His strength was made perfect in our weakness in a beautiful way. As the time passed, our prayers got very specific. And what was burning on my heart was to ask my Lord for some fertile soil.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the friends that I have made here, and I know God has a awesome plan for each of their lives. But I wanted to make friends this week that had already been poured into and they have already heard the gospel.
After four days of looking for these friends. It wasn’t until a few days later, when I totally forgot about what I prayed, that God sent two young men to me.
I met them at a weekly meeting I attend, and had amazing conversations with them both. One of them was so excited about the Word, that he kept asking when I teach classes on it! Haha! I told him I don’t teach full classes, but I teach individual people. For free! He was buggin’ out, and could hardly wait to find out when I would be free for this study!
The other guy I met spoke almost perfect English, and he had been going to another weekly meeting with some of his friends, who are brothers. So he was asking me very deep questions that were on his heart. I also will be hanging out with him this week, and will be encouraging him in a decision for the King!
Here’s the kicker: I didn’t realize that God had answered my prayer until later that night! Probably 4 hours after meeting them. I was in my room reading my journal, and I was like “Oh yeah!!!! Thank you, Lord!!!!!”
He truly heard my cry, and gave an answer in His timing! I felt the Lord impress upon my heart Lk.11 where He talks about asking, seeking, and knocking. What an awesome promise it is! To have a God who will not give us garbage, when we ask for food. Or who will not give us rocks to eat, when we want bread!
That’s it for now! Peace!!!
