I just had the most amazing experience I’ve had in a long time. God wanted to give me a good surprise, and He sure did!
Fiona brought me the mail, and I saw a card among the envelopes. It was addressed to :)A Very Special Family 🙂 at our address. No return address. It came through St. Louis’s post office system.
It was a Thinking of You card. It said: Just to let you know someone’s remembering you in prayer… and trusting God to touch your life with warmth and loving care.
This handwritten message followed: Your family has been on my heart and in my prayers. Asking God to “work all things together for your good.”
In Christ’s Love
And if that wasn’t enough, there was a letter, too. It said:
I know we don’t know each other, but I know that each and every member of your family is very special. God loves all of you.
I am not sure what your circumstances in life are, but I would like to let you know that I’m praying for favor and the blessing of God on the lives of each of you.
Please know also, that you are near and dear to the Father of all Creation. He placed you all strongly on my heart to pray for you. Because He loves you 🙂
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son, that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
Phil. 4:4, 6, and 7
“Rejoice in the Lord always, I will say it again: Rejoice!” “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard your heart and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Much love and many blessings!
And then this prayer:
Father, in Jesus’ name, keep this family tightly in Your grasp. Protect them and light their paths. Lord, give them the desires of their hearts. Bless them and pour Your favor upon them. If any be sick, Lord, heal them. Draw them closer to You. Make Your face to shine upon them. Lift any fears, worries, burdens, anxieties or troubles. Thank you, Father, that You hear our prayers, and You answer them. Your perfect will be done in their lives.
In Jesus’ Name,
Amen and Amen.
I am crying and overwhelmed by God’s love and kindness. I honestly have no idea who sent this letter. I only know that God is proving once again just how very much we are on His mind and that He is with us and we have nothing to fear.
Phil. 4:6, 7 AGAIN! Okay, Lord, I am anxious for nothing.
Whom shall I fear? The Lord is on my side. He has us right where he wants us. And He will put us in the right place at the right time. I believe.
