The Song She Prays

There is nothing like talking to a friend and hearing her words echo something God is producing in your own life.

It is so validating and confirms that God is at work–not that I should need confirmation, but sometimes, I really do.

I spoke with a friend about some difficult circumstances in her life, specifically her child’s health. I told her the verse that is my, “Truth I’m Standing On.” She excitedly blurted out, “That’s the song I’ve been praying! I just don’t know what to pray anymore, so I’ve been praying that song.”

How cool is that!

Something that seemed so casual and unrelated spoke boldly into both our lives at that moment. I had no idea how much that song meant to her and what an encouragement it would be to her that God is listening.

What a great reminder that God is in every detail. He orchestrates and uses everything in our lives to bring us hope and remind us that He is present, whether we are aware of it or not. 

 

What verse or song reminds you that God is at work?

    This story of Job brings back memories of dear friends of mine. 6 years ago their house caught fire. The oldest daughter, who was a
    young mother herself, grabbed her 2 younger brothers, 14 and 11 and tried to escape. They did but was severely burnt. Tiffany was only 26 and her Braxton 11 both passed away. Tre the 14 year old lived but spent many months in children’s hospital but is now doing fine. Now let the point that reminds me of Job. The dad was there praying with the fire fighters, EMS and sheriff deputies while at the same time his children were fighting for their lives. He is a strong man of God and knew who was in control. He told me later our children are only on loan to us from God and He has every right to take them back. He was so thankful for the time God gave him with those children. He continues to serve God and is such an inspiration to me.

      Oh my goodness! What a great truth, but in such tragedy. The dad’s words and strength of faith…I can’t even wrap my mind around that. What a great testimony. Thank you so much for sharing this!
