His Answers

She looked at me with glassy blue eyes.
"I just couldn't do it all," she her voice dropped to a whisper hating to reveal her weakness.
She was overwhelmed with the care required to help her elderly friend.
Sunday morning came and with it a suggestion.
"Do what you can do then pray for the Lord to send help with what you are not able to handle,"
her pastor spoke to her need.
Prayer was the answer?
She carried her needs through her mediator to the Father casting every care upon Him.
Help arrived in unsuspected ways.
Needs were met almost instantly.
The Lord had heard and was responding...........
Faith increased in both of us as she shared her testimony.
"He hears, doesn't He?" I affirmed.
She could no longer speak for the emotion and gratitude that now filled her.

"Cast all your care upon Him, for He cares for you!"

Amen, Cheri! I love when a prayer is answered in such a way! It helps me to remember those times when other prayers require a waiting heart. I hope your day is blessed!

Beautiful, Cheri.

It's is a special honor when God allows us to see His answers. Sometimes we may never see them or see them with such a bright light. But...when we do, oh how beautiful to say "He answered me; I was in the presence of the Holy one."
