Yellow Pages and a Prayer

I want to welcome everyone who is popping in from A Woman Inspired Conference. Thank you for taking time from your busy schedule to stop over here.

During the conference I shared how God used a prayer and the yellow pages to orchestrate the sensational. My husband prayed for salvation with Joe, the contractor, while standing on the driveway in front of our home. I wish I could share a photo with you. The image is burned in my mind.

After Joe, the contractor left our home my head was reeling… Did what I just witness really happen? I needed time to process it all. Girls, I processed all night long. I couldn’t sleep and I prayed like crazy.

The next morning arrived and I tentatively approached my man and asked, “What really happened to you out there yesterday?”

My husband told me he was taken off-guard by the impromptu prayer meetin'. He said he was not ready to make that commitment.

Now this is where I tell you I am okay. I wasn't devastated to hear this from my husband. I have a peace about it. God has been teaching me a lot about trusting Him.

Following this short conversation we then began to talk about our old dog. He was very ill at the time and we were struggling with certain decisions that were before us.

During this conversation my husband says to me, "I prayed and asked God about what to do."

I said, "What?"

He tells me in a matter of fact way, "I talk to God."

"You do?" I am shocked.

"I talk to God but not like you. I don't write things down."

I say, "Honey, could you be closer than I think?"

He says, "yes."

Girls, I am along for the ride, just taking in the moment. I am leaning on our Savior and blessed by watching God work in our home. My husband is not there yet but he is still on the journey. It is a very long journey (years and years for those of you who need encouragement, hang in there). I am patient and will wait.

I will wait along with you and I will NEVER STOP PRAYING FOR THIS MAN.

Have an amazing day and I pray the full impact of Easter overwhelms you with joy today.

I want to thank the organizers of A Woman Inspired for allowing me to honor Jesus through sharing the miracles He has done in our lives. Be Blessed, Lynn

Also, please say hello to the co-writer here at Spiritually Unequal Marriage, Dineen Miller. Today she is sharing a devotion at Laced With Grace.
