Matthew 6:9-15 In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
Father, thank you for being the lead and guide of life. Thank you for being the joy of life. Thank you for the living water you are that leads to a place of peace. Help us to listen to you and go that way. Help us to see you, the God in the midst. In Jesus name. Amen.
May 20th, it had been a week that my son’s wrist was fractured. We awaited a referral per our insurance plan. The referral specialist called and texted me late that night. She said she was in the tub and thought about my son and his referral. She explained that she was getting married and was going to be away from work for a while and thought of him. She input his referral into the system and sent me screen prints of the referral as I called the practice to find out which specialist accepted our insurance. Grateful and thankful for God giving her the revelation of my son while she was off work. Grateful and thankful for her texting the screen shots of her computer screen as she input the referral for my son. My anxiety, my fear, my heart was in my throat as this was not the “official referral.” However, my son and I went to the doctor’s appointment anyway. I packed my credit card just in case. We went forward anyhow, and I shared with my son, my concerns. Encouraged him to pray as well. We approached the receptionist, filled out paperwork, turned in his x-ray disks with no ask for his referral. We left that appointment with my sons cast. The enemy played with my mind as I thought the insurance would not pay their portion of the bill in time, my credit card on file, and I had not received the official looking authorization document in the weeks ahead. In the meantime, I worked with the referral specialist and did eventually, retrieve the authorization via email.
Journey with me five weeks ahead as my son healed and his cast was removed. When we approached the receptionist this time her eyes got big as she looked at her screen. She then asked for the referral, saying she should have asked for it on the initial visit. I told her no worries; you are asking for it now. She gave me her email address and with this new and wonderful technology I was able to email it to her at once. However, we know the enemy is real. The internet buffered and buffered and would not let the email go through immediately. More angst and anxiety for me. However, with a little more patience and within a few more moments, the email was sent.
In that moment. His hand revealed as He leads us. In that moment, sharing with my son to remember the initial visit and how God took care to wait until we had with us the official authorization. The receptionist apologizing for not asking for it initially. How powerful the lead of God. Waiting on HIs timing.
Father we thank you yet again for leading us. We thank you for your grace and mercy and your hand upon us. We thank you Lord for being the lead of everything and that with our hand in yours, anything is possible. Dreams are reality. Your lead in and on our lives shall come to past. Help us to know it is true. In Jesus name. Amen.
