The Hand of God

"The Lord will perfect that which concerns me..." [Psalm 138:8 KJV]

I've certainly seen God's hand in my life. One day I was on my way home from a long tiring trip from the dialysis center. My mother was with me and she was worrying about how we were going to get all these dialysis boxes into our house. While we were at the dialysis center in Philadelphia, a supply truck was dropping off the different supplies I needed at the house so I could use for dialysis. My mother was wondering how we were going to get all these boxes into the house, there were two weeks worth, I just told my mother we would do it, we just have to take our time.

As we came pulling up to our house, there was a whole bunch of boxes just sitting there in front of the front step. About 30 boxes or so 10 pounds each. I was pretty tired because of all my health issues plus the trip to the dialysis center, yeah I know, poor excuses.

I just told my mother we would take our time. Than out of nowhere, our next door neighbor, Ishmael, comes over with a box cart. He is such a nice guy! He's like, "I see you have all these boxes here, and I got this box cart and I want to help you guys!" I was very appreciative and was just thinking how great God is and was thankful for the helping hand. So what would of taken us a lot longer took us about five minutes with our next door neighbor's help! Thanks Ishmael!

Sometimes we ask God for something, and we wonder if he heard us. Than sometimes it takes longer than we expect and we may get discouraged. Other times we may not like the answers we do get, such as cancer, but that is our cross and we have to carry it the best we can. Than other times he answers right away and when that happens, it is an awesome feeling! It's almost if, you could see the hand of God, right before you!

It is awesome, Thomas, when you know that the God who created the universe is interested in every little facet of your life.

Amen, Thomas! Love those "God" moments!

and I have to say...that those excuses for being tired are NOT poor!

Yes Lori, they are great moments indeed. I know they aren't poor excuses but sometimes I just wish I could do more to help, sometimes I get angry at how tired and weak I feel.
