Spiritual Sunday and Pink Saturday Post
We are sharing this wonderful weekend for an Inspiring makeover reveal for Colette
This week I have pondered all of the miracles I have experienced in my life.
So I thought I would share one short story about each.
God's Miraculous provision
In 1979 we were getting ready to leave the army and move home to finish my husbands masters.
We were quite pour to say the least! We sat down and put together the cost to rent a trailer, hotel and food cost plus gas for the trip from Florida to Kansas. We came up with the number of $342.
We knew we would really have to save to have that much.
When shopping I picked up an envelope in the parking lot. I did not make a habit of this so I was quite surprised to realize it was cash, a LOT of cash.
When I got home I called the store to report the find giving our name and phone number and the fact that it was cash without giving an amount.
After the 2 months before we moved I kept the money in the envelope in the dresser drawer waiting for the call I knew would come.
And yes, it was exactly $342.
God's Miraculous protection
My husband was on night duty on base.
I was home with two small children.
Someone was trying to get into the house.
As I laid there and prayed for God to protect us I opened my eyes and
the brightest white figure filled the bedroom door.
I cried out OK God I believe
as I pulled the covers over my head
Whoever it was trying to break down the door went away.
Not always the easiest to obtain!
Our son left home with his 16 year old girlfriend right after his 18th birthday.
There were many nights I cried my self to sleep.
I could not understand why
We had no idea where they were for 3 months.
Only with God's peace was I able to go through that tough time.
Last September I woke up and got my husband off to work.
It was like any other normal morning.
I started getting a headache about 10 am
I was supposed to drive my friend and I to the gym.
I called her to let her know I had a headache she said she would drive.
When she got to the house my headache had gotten worse.
Within 15 minutes I couldn't stand and my speech had become slurred.
She called 911
I had had a major stroke but because God had orchestrated the timing for me not to be in the car and my friend to be at my house I was able to get to the hospital within the 3 hour time frame to receive the drug
tPA that cleared the clot. I spent the next two days in ICU but came home with almost no side effects from the stroke.
These are only a few of the stories of God's intervention in my life. I pray they have given you hope in whatever place you find yourself today.
