Answered Prayer

Hallelujah, Grace like rain
is falling down on me!

Last week I shared here that I wasn't sure how I was going to get to the Relevant Conference because I was having trouble raising enough money to buy my plane ticket and pay for hotel costs.  I've tried many avenues at getting a sponsor with no luck.

Todd Agnew sings the song "Grace Like Rain", and I absolutely love it.  It applies so very well to my life all the time.  God showers me with this grace in so many ways, which I don't deserve.

Last Friday, the day after my post, I received a call from a friend of mine and he needs some extra help at the Graphic Design company where he works and wanted to know if I was interested in being an outside contractor for them.  Well I had to think about it...................not really..............of course, I said yes!  I was blown away by the answer to not just my prayer, but all of yours.

Then my husband came home that same Thursday with a large check from my brother.  Husband had been helping him with some work to a house my brother was flipping.

THANK YOU!  I am so blessed by the prayers you have lifted up on my behalf.  I feel confident that we will be able to put aside the needed money now for my plane ticket and hotel.

"I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
he delivered me from all my fears."
Psalm 34:4

"Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!"
Psalm 66:20


And another praise for your faithful prayers, we had a fantastic few days at camp.  My 8 year old and I attended First Chance Camp for 3rd graders.  This was their first time at an overnight camp, so we only stayed for one night.  I was a counselor with 6 girls in my group.  Our theme was "In It To Win It", so we talked a lot about our faith walk and finishing the race.

This is my daughter(left) and her best friend.

So thank you again for your prayers for these girls.  We came home exhausted and happy!

Praise God! I am glad you are going to Relevant. I am sure you'll come back refreshed and on fire to continue with your ministry.

That is so awesome. God listens to our prayers and knows just what to bring into our lives. Don't forget to pray a word of thanksgiving too!

As for camp, my son is there now. I remember being there with my kids. I loved being a camp counselor. What a great theme.
