Amazing God

If anyone were to tell me that my God wasn't amazing, I wouldn't give it a second thought. My God is a prayer answerer. My God is graceful. My God is kind.   Last night I had a break down. Before I read my daily devotions, I prayed. I prayed that God would answer me because I had been praying about the same thing for the last week. I had been fervently praying for relief from my problem. Last night, I pretty much just threw my hands up and figured God was upset with me. I had done something horribly wrong and He wanted to ignore my pleas. Well, last night I read my devotions and still, no words of wisdom hit me like they normally do.  I decided to keep reading into Psalm 22.  The scripture you see to your right (Psalm 22:1,2) is what I read and immediately I knew that He knew what I was feeling.  I prayed again, I told God that I would keep praying, I would not give up.  I would keep praying until I aggravated  him enough to answer me! (I had read about this in a previous devotion Luke 18:18) :-)  This morning, from pretty much the moment I got up, my problem had been solved. I came downstairs and my prayer had been answered.

I have also been praying about Taylor sleeping through the night. So far, for the past two nights I have prayed that Taylor would sleep at least until 6am and both times, he has slept until 6 am, I've given him a bottle and he sleeps again until about 8 or 830am. Oh! And on that note,  I didn't even have to put him to sleep last night. I laid him in his crib and he figured it out (without crying!!!!!). Amazing. Amazing!

God is amazing!!! I'm glad he answered your prayer.........in his time right? That has happened to me many times, not as fast as I would have liked but it has happened. That's what makes Him so real, his blessings♥
