Blown Away...

I've been having such a great time on Facebook over the past couple of months.  It's so fun to reunite with old friends and to see what's become of their lives.


(For those of you who may not know, Facebook is a social networking site.  You register, add as much or as little info about yourself as you'd like, and then start searching by school, town, name, etc. for any friends who might also be registered.  When you find someone, you invite them to be a "friend".  If they approve, then you're back in touch with your old buddy and you can get caught up via their info pages, pictures, and even something similar to instant messages.)

Well...today, my socks were blessed clean off.

A friend from elementary school popped up.  To be honest, I don't remember a lot about her (I was only at that school for 2 short years)...but she remembered me!  In fact, she told me that she had been praying for me since way back then!!!

Since getting her message, I've had the song "Thank You For Giving To The Lord" playing through my head.  I wonder how powerfully her prayers have moved my life?  It seems sometimes that God is so near...is he honoring her prayers for me by drawing me near and loving me in that moment?  

God tells us that he hears our prayers and that our prayers actually DO something.  And to think that someone has been thinking of me with love and hope and faith all these years.  I'm just so humbled and touched!

Has someone been on your mind and you're not quite sure why?  Maybe that's a Divine prompt to pray for that person - lift them up in prayer right now!  You may never know the effect that your prayers have on a given situation, but when we place people and situations in God's hands and ask Him to MOVE in some way...you just can't go wrong.

That is a wonderful story.

I am resisting FB though. I just don't have the time.
