Here is a funny share!
So, my friend Tara tells me I need to be more specific when I pray and I think she may be right. However, no doubt God is listening and sharing His love & sense of humor with me!
(While in prayer I keep hearing, Don’t awaken love before the time is right Song of Solomen 2:7 NLT)
For about 1 year. Ok, maybe longer I’ve been talking to God about “Romance”.
Yes, I’ve a “list” but over time the list has become more like a post it note. Feeling as if I may need to “settle” but for a pet! After all, I love animals and it has been a few years since I’ve lived with one!
My prayer went something like this:
Dear Lord, you know my desire to have something to cuddle 😉 but a dog may not be the best choice. However, whatever you feel is right for me at this season, I will be grateful. If it’s “free” I will know it’s your gift to me!
Two weeks later I receive an email from a friend (He had no idea I was considering a pet). He called to let me know of a breeder of Persian cats and how he is getting two kitties. Oh, while there he thought of me…the breeder has a 4 year old female she is no longer able to breed and would like to give her away to a good home.
Oh, by the way her name is “Romance”.
Immediately I went to meet Romance and fell in love. After saying yes I went home and prepared for her arrival. This meant getting the house ready, and purchasing her favorite food and treats!
One week later Romance moved in.
I must admit it’s been an adjustment, for both of us. She was more uncomfortable the first week than me. She slept under the bed. Then moved from under the bed to sitting at the end of the bed only to stare at me with her big yellow eyes.
Before long I was smitten with my new 4-year old kitten!
God’s love & faithfulness is so PURfect.
I hope this little story encourages you today if you find yourself waiting on God. One thing I’ve learned in the journey is to keep my heart and hands open. You never know what God has for you but I guarantee it will be good!
