I feel pretty bad right now.
I had this great post that I wanted to write (now that was humble, wasn't it)...have all my notes ready, and things I am dying to share with you...but I feel terrible right now.
So off I go to bed.
One big praise, though...God provided a day bed...it's exactly what I'd hoped for, and the people are driving it to us...all the way from Queen Creek!
This morning, I was sitting outside doing some Bible study, and read a verse in 1 John 2 about asking God for our wants...when we're walking in righteousness. (I'm paraphrasing, I know.)
1 John 3:21-24
Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God;
and whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do the things that are pleasing in His sight.
This is His commandment, that we believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us.
The one who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. We know by this that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us.
I just stopped right in the middle of my study and said,
"LORD, you know how hard this sleep thing is right now. I don't want to be selfish, but I really think we could use a bed in the guest room...I think it would help out so much right now. If it's Your will for us, would You please just work out the details?"
Then, a few minutes later, I came inside.
Now mind you...it was 7:30am, and I'd been up since 3:30...anyone who knows me knows not to call me before 10, but when I came in I looked at the phone, and someone had called.
It was the lady that I had talked to yesterday about the day bed. She was calling to tell me that her husband would be happy to drive it to us!
The time of her call was the EXACT MINUTE that I was sitting on my porch asking of God for my need!
THE EXACT MINUTE!
For those of you who don't know, driving to my house from Queen Creek is like driving to Phoenix from Southern Mexico!
OK...so, maybe I should turn my frown upside down, eh?
Here's a picture of my new bed, as seen on Craig's List.
Thank you, LORD!
Now we just need to pray for a comfortable mattress. :)
Love you all...
