The Prompting of God

With Todd gone to Houston this week, the children studied outside at the picnic table instead of getting a ride in to the town library.

Monday, they were reading, studying, and typing on laptops, when a woman from a neighbouring campsite walked over to talk to them.  She said she’d noticed how diligently they were working, and then she asked, “do you need anything?”.  The children responded that they didn’t, and she turned to leave, saying “Sometimes God prompts you to ask, and you’ve got to obey”.

After a bit, our oldest went over to her as she and her husband were hitching up to leave.  He told her that the one thing we can always use is prayer.  She said that she didn’t want to boast, but she and her husband considered themselves prayer warriors, and that she understood and valued the power of prayer.

“Are you sure you don’t need anything right now?”  –As the reader, you know our situation; she knew nothing.–   Then she handed him a wad of cash, saying that it was a love gift from her and her husband.

These experiences deeply etch the soul. That son, those children watching, the parents who would later hear all about the incident – we are living with the deep certainty that God is watching over us.
