Watching the hands of Gentle Ben hanging above her head, the sun shines on the bottom of her slippers as her eyes grow heavy. Her mind is a million miles from here. The living room looms as the world is in her hands. With her swept-back hair and bedroom eyes, she stretches out on the couch in blue sweats. I watch her in awe. The sun gleaming through the window caresses her smile as she dozes off again. So I stare at the love of my life. Once in a great while, God honors those heartfelt dreams.
Keeping the faith, our Father in heaven reciprocates with a genuine love you’ve spent your life looking for—a true blessing. Holding on to the dreams you prayed for long ago, God’s in the business of answering them. You see, patience is the secret.
So, you may ask, “How can I receive God’s blessings or a miracle?” First, be diligent in prayer and praise as God did all His miracles by the spoken Word. Prayer may be in the form of singing or reading and studying the Bible. Be sure it is positive though and avoid negative phrases.
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”
Second of all, live by God’s Word! It doesn’t mean that Satan will not try to interfere with your prayers, but our powerful Lord will ultimately win.
“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”
So maybe we wait, or maybe we become impatient and make mistakes. Regardless, God is forever faithful to us. I try to be on my best behavior–never wanting to bend the Ten Commandments. It’s a good practice to follow the laws God handed us.
So now soundly sleeping, it’s best I write and not wake her–my sleeping beauty. Watching as the sun shadows the tree tops, I clutch my heart for the love I just adore. If man ever had a second chance at life, it surely would be me as I stare at my gorgeous wife who sleeps so innocently. There’s not much to say as I think about the gift God gave me, except to always stay in prayer. I’ll never forget who made this moment happen. Our Father in heaven, gets all the honor and glory!
