Inspiration Friday: Answered Prayer

 In Inspiration, Prayer

I haven’t done an “Inspiration Friday” post in ages, and today is the perfect day to start them up again!

You know what’s truly inspiring? Answered prayer! If it feels like I’ve been talking a lot about prayer lately, it’s because this blog is simply a reflection of where I am in my personal walk with God, and right now, that means various facets of prayer. I am learning to have daily, constant relationship with God, and, as a result, I am in awe watching Him answer my prayers. It’s insanely humbling. And it does wonders for my faith!

This is why we need to give actual voice to our prayers: because when God answers, we see how truly intimately He knows us and is involved in our day-to-day lives. Isn’t that incredible? God! The God of the universe! He knows me and listens to me and answers my humble requests!

Now that is what I call inspiring!

    What a perfect blog for me to read this week!! I haven’t told many people because it’s been so bizarre it almost sounds like I’m making it up. On Monday I took the day off to escort my dad to USF Neurology – he said if I didn’t go he wouldn’t either. He was diagnosed with Parkinson’s. The next day while trying to digest this information and what the future will hold for him and us, my mother was taken by ambulance to the hospital – her blood sugar dropped to a dangerously low level. Feeling a bit overwhelmed, I couldn’t wait to get home, but I arrived only to find one of the puppies we rescued less than a week ago violently sick. After taking her to the vet they confirmed Parvo – a deadly illness for dogs, especially puppies. Since there is no cure, we would have to treat the symptoms (excruciating stomach pain, bloody vomiting and diarrhea, dehydration – AWFUL) with twice daily trips to the vet for IV fluids, shots for pain, nausea, etc. She stayed one night in the pet hospital and the Dr. said her odds of making it were 50/50. I went in to share this info with my daughter and she was crying hysterically because her ex-boyfriend whom she still cares about deeply (she broke up with him because she wanted to concentrate on school – very mature in my opinion – but was secretly hoping to get back together with) texted her and confided that he realizes now that he is gay. She doesn’t know how to cope and is just beside herself, especially with everything else going on in her life.

    Whew!! Here’s the neat part. BLESSINGS:
    **Somehow Ben and I have gotten closer through all of it, and held it together throughout this crazy week.
    **My dad was finally diagnosed and can start treatment
    **My mom is home and fine
    **Julianne has handled her situation with grace and forgiveness
    **The puppy is still with us

    I KNOW it was God because yesterday morning I said a weary prayer, “God – you’re going to have to carry me because I just can’t do this.” I hopped in my car and before I turned on the radio said, “God – speak to me through music today.” The song that was midway through was called “Carry Me”. 😀 AMAZING. Really?! I love how God lets me know He’s there.

    PS – We named the puppy Miracle 🙂
    Still need a name for the other one – any ideas??
