For 3 years, we prayed for another child. And then you came – God’s answer to our prayer.
“Who Me?” you probably ask when we tell you that.
“I don’t know if I want to be an answer to anybody’s prayer,” you probably think.
But God Elohim, mighty and strong, created and preserves you
Almighty God El Shaddai is all-sufficient to ALL your needs
He is Adonai, master over your destiny
who as Jehovah-Jireh foresees every challenge you will face, every choice, whether good or bad, and provides a way back home
where as Jehovah-Rophe He will welcome you, wrap you in both his arms and heal your wounds, both self-inflicted and inflicted by others
and as you heal in the shadow of His presence
Jehovah-M’Kaddesh will sanctify you, make you pure and whole in His sight
until, finally, you find peace in the presence of Jehovah-Shalom
the answer to a prayer fulfilled, made whole, perfected
you with the mighty strength He put within you
with agile swiftness
A heart for the hurting or downtrodden
and all else he put within you
loyalty, faithfulness, nobleness
will be used by God to answer many prayers
We will just know that God used you to answer our prayer first
I am so proud of my son. He is a walking, talking testimony of the power of prayer, of seed-time-and-harvest, faith and hope. I remember when he was a little boy, soaking beneath a tub of bubbles, and we were talking about bloom-time.
“I know, Mom. I know. I’m not blooming yet,” he sighed.
Today, I want to tell my son,
“You are so blooming,
a good-man kind of blooming”
