A good while back I think I blogged about this. If I did, forgive me for revisiting it. If I didn’t…
There was a time several years ago when there was a situation with one of my children that was dominating my mind. I had prayed and prayed and prayed about it… seemingly to no avail. It was as though God wasn’t only not answering me, He was ignoring my pleas. On one particular day I was making hospital visits and was almost to the point of arguing with God. I was thinking… if not saying out loud…
God… why won’t you answer me? Why are you just letting this thing go on and on? I’ve been talking with you about this for a while and it is frustrating that nothing is changing! I’ve tried talking to them… arguing… staying quiet… dropping subtle hints… and I keep hitting brick walls! What am I supposed to do now?!!!
At that precise moment… a car passed me on my left while I was going across a bridge… and the picture to the right was the car tag! “KPPRAYN” Keep praying! The timing was NOT a cosmic coincidence! There was no possible way that car drove by me at that SPECIFIC time EXACTLY when I had just voiced my question to God in prayer and it NOT BE GOD GIVING ME AN ANSWER! A car tag was a little token of affirmation that we get from time to time!
Immediately I had my answer. I KNEW God had been… was… and would continue to hear my prayer. Not only that, I was convinced God would answer me in His time! Talk about joy… peace… serenity… and contentment flooding my soul as God’s Spirit comforted me, it happened that very moment.
Several weeks later I walked out of a store and noticed that the car parked beside me HAD THAT TAG! So I took a picture of it with my cell phone and waited on the driver. A few minutes later a lady walked to the car and I told her my story. She began to cry. She told me the reason she got that tag was because her son was living a wanton lifestyle. He was into drugs and was possibly about to be imprisoned. She said the only thing she could do was pray because everything else had not “worked.” So we prayed… went our separate ways… and I’ve never seen her again.
What is your problem today? Whatever it is… “KPPRAYN.” God IS listening. He WILL answer you. In HIS time. So “KPPRAYN.”
