God is GOOD

Just thought I would share...

Today was one of those days. From the moment I woke up I could tell that it was going to be a hard day. With our A/C going out the night before, money troubles, pregnancy aches and pains, lack of sleep and 4 rambunctious children in need of...well, everything!!! I was at a breaking point. My already frazzled pregnancy emotions couldn't handle the weight of my responsibilities.

Then, I got a call from a dear friend and neighbor in the early afternoon who can read me like a book. I was able to talk to her and unload some burdens. She then told me that on Sunday while she was sitting in Sacrament Meeting the spirit whispered to her that she needed to bring me dinner on Wednesday (that is today!) When she told me this I got chills from head to toe.

This I know...My heavenly Father knows me. He knew the exact day and the exact hour that I would need him the most. He told someone who was listening to his sweet spirit that I was going to need a little extra help. The spaghetti that she brought tonight was extra yummy, because I knew that it was a direct answer to my prayers and a direct message from my Heavenly Father that he cares.

Never doubt that God is Good, that he loves us and that he will not forsake us in our time of need.

I hate when you have bad days and I can't be there to help you. I am so glad that you have good friends near by to help you and I am especially glad that our Heavenly Father knows best of all how to help you and take care of you! I hope tomorrow it better. Love ya!

Ditto. I hate when you have bad days and I can't be there to help you. I am so very glad though that you did receive the relief you needed as well as the reassurance that you are not alone. We love ya! Soon this will all be a memory.

This makes me think of it from another perspective... being prepared to listen, spiritually in tune, so God can use me when others might need help. When God helps me like he helped you, it makes me want to work all that much more to be there for others. It keeps the flow going and more help comes and I'm able to give more. I wish it were easy to keep it going, but I usually get selfish at some point or Satan works at me from some new angle.

I enjoy your spiritual encounters so much. And I'm happy that you can recognize them.
