That's No Coincidence!

I feel like an excited child who can't wait to get home and show her parents that she made straight "A's" on her report card. Well, though there's no report card today I am so excited to share about this day. Yesterday I shared that I was too ill to ask for prayer from friends and just went to sleep leaving it all to God. I woke up feeling like a new person. No nausea whatsoever. But the really exciting thing is that I had 5 different email messages today from people that said in one way or another "I felt the need to pray for you and so I lifted you up in prayer." Five people!! That is no coincidence! God knew that even when I didn't have the words, He would lay it on the hearts of His people to lift me up. What a mighty God we serve!
The rest of the day was just as good. I went for the CT scan but didn't feel the burden of worry as I did yesterday. It only took one stick for the IV! Yea! Us NICU nurses are not fond of more than one stick whether it be us or our babies. During the scan I spent some wonderful time in prayer speaking to Him as though he were standing next to me.
Then my dear friend Ann called to check on me. She lovingly holds me accountable when my faith shakes or the doubt slips out.
Now we are getting ready to go to dinner with our friend Deloris, another spiritual example in my life, and then off to choir. I will sing as loud as I can without being obnoxious because I have a song in my heart!
I have shared so often my favorite scripture, Lamentations 3:23 because it speaks to me time and time again. " Great is thy faithfulness. His mercies begin afresh each day."
