Life’s Little Lessons

It’s amazing how this crazy world works sometimes. Truly. I spent most of yesterday pondering on some news that I received in the morning. (What this news is isn’t important to this story…well, maybe it could be, but I’m not ready to release it yet.) Through the distraction that it gave me I plodded through work, Facebook updates, check-ups on stats, text, e-mails and meetings. The whole while I couldn’t help but wonder what am I supposed to do? I mean, I really can’t do anything, except wait. And wait I did. I’m still waiting actually, but I did find the answer to the above question. It was right under my nose – if it were a snake it would have bit me. (And I would have cried like a little girl.)

After my meeting last night I cruised home and proceeded to scope out the ole Internets. Things were looking normal, then I noticed a message on Facebook. A friend had reached out and asked for me to say a prayer for them and theirs. I was a little stunned at first, and very humbled. What impact I must make for someone to seek me out for this sort of task? Do you know how nice it is to be seen this way? It’s unbelievable. Truly. And on top of that, the situation offered me a lesson. I tried to give some sincere words of encouragement, and whatever advice I thought might work. A few minutes later I figured out that this was what I needed to do anyway. I needed to pray. I needed to pray for my situation and for my friends. That’s what I was supposed to do.

I thank you for asking me for help. I thank you for showing me the answer to my own question. I slept better because of you, and I hope the same is true for you, because of me.

6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. ~ Philippians 4: 6-7
