The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.
So, I have been hurting the past few weeks… I am not gonna state the reason for it is too personal but I am gonna share my story of my prayer being answered.
As I human being, I use to have the tendency to think or worry too much, that I am already missing what is right in front of me. Then I feel this ‘pang’ in my chest or something like that. [Note: This is a serious topic for me and a little touchy. So to those who don’t like mushy stuff, please continue reading. It’s worth it.]
If you guys are hurting, in pain, or something in between, just know that God always has a reason and that He makes everything good at it’s time… If this hadn’t happened, then I wouldn’t be able to talk to God would I?
In problems like these, I always have the need to talk to an elderly (besides my parents). I was able to talk to an elderly in church. She told me to pray. She comforted me. And I thank her for that. I was able to do what she instructed me to do. And with God’s help, I was able to do it…
So, here it goes….
“Lord when will I talk to my dad about my problem? When will I confront Him?” I ask the Lord.
“When the time is right, my child.” He replies.
I kind of doubted a bit. I was thinking if it was me talking to myself… or if it was really God…
“I was thinking of getting baptized, Lord.”
“That’s good news”
“I love you, Jesus”
“I love you too, child”
I started tearing up with joy and grinning widely.
“I hope my parents won’t see me crying, Lord”
“Oh wait! I want them to see me cry, so they will pity me” [Note: I kind of laughed at my childishness here. I really wanted them to pity me]
Then… my father entered my room…
He asked “What is the problem, Dannelle?”
I didn’t answer. I was angry and hurting.
My mom then called my dad for some help. This gave me the time to ask God.
“God? Is right NOW the time?”
and the Lord answered “Yes.”
“Please give me the courage”
My dad came back to the room, and we talked… I found that my dad was really patient and calm. One thing I like about my dad. He knows how to control himself.
Honestly, the problem wasn’t the same problem I had before… I don’t even remember the problem anymore.
But I felt so blessed to have a father like him.
If you guys have a problem and you feel alone. Like no one in the world can help you… always remember, that God is always behind your back.
And that was my testimony… Hope you guys could learn something from it… God Bless! ❤
