Wanda’s verse for times like these…

“Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.” Psalm 27:14

Last weekend was rough. This past weekend was a bit better. Today…hmmm, a few problems.

As Aimee and I sat with Wanda alone we shared scripture with her. Realizing she didn’t have the strength to speak much…we did the talking. Wanda wanted us to read a particular verse. Aimee and I began searching. She couldn’t remember all the words…had trouble remembering where it was in the Bible…but we went to digging. We began in the Psalms—then moved to Isaiah….then on to Jeremiah….when at last, a faithful brother-in-law preacher man text-messaged me the verse. He was one chapter off…but there it was. Plain as day. Wait on the LORD. And so we do.

Tonight we have prayed for her. From where we were, as we each got the text message about the beginning of her receiving blood…about the blown vein….the starting over….the anxious hearts. My friend and sister-in-Christ were in Barnes and Noble looking at Bibles when the text message came. I said to Vivienne, let’s go get coffee—we’ve got to pray. She immediately went with me, we placed our order…sat down and while they made our special something with whipped cream….we went to the table and called on God. Right there. In public. I didn’t really care who was next to me…who over heard our pleading to the Father. I had serious business at the Throne. We wept, blew our noses and drank our coffee. God was real. God was there.

A little while later, as we were still sitting there feeling the presence of the Lord, I called my brother-in-law and asked if he would put the phone to Wanda’s ear. I told her how much I loved her and that we had been praying. I told her that my calendar for this very week prompted me daily to “have faith” —- “believe” “keep the faith”—-TRUST. We do.

Thank you for praying for my sweet sister.

My sister Aimee and I decided we would begin a special blog with Wanda. It is slow going…but we are trying. I love each of you.

UPDATE: Unit of blood went well—took long—but all is good right now. Praise the Lord from whom ALL blessings flow!

    Dear Angie,As you may know I am a novice to praying and feeling in touch with God. So, what you wrote about praying on that bookshop there and then, sounds so impresive. And I read further down when you wrote that we are waiting to take our troubles to the Lord only when we cannot solve them by our own means. This is so true. I have always thought that we must make separate time to meditate, to be in touch with God. This is quite revolutionary to me, but it makes sense. This way we stay in touch with God anytime , and we do not let the evil make us doubt His power, His love, and our faith in Him. I am so thankful you stopped by my post. With your permission I shall add your name to my sidebar and visit you again.Humbly praying for your dear sister who looks so much full of beauty, kindness and vitality.
