Here is what Tintin had to say after reading my post on prayer:
hi dinna. your post made me cry! i’ve been going through a tough time lately and there are a lot of things that i haven’t really prayed for. maybe because i’m afraid that God’s answer will be different from what i want. it’s easy to say “thy will be done” but essentially difficult to truly mean it. i am a person who always wants my will to be done so the true meaning of surrendering to god’s will is difficult for me. i constantly struggle against this and i just hope that i will be able to overcome this difficulty. i believe that God uses different people and events to speak to us and i feel that he was speaking to me through you. you are a blessing! I pray that God will continue to use you to touch other people. God bless you!
This is precisely what I mean, Tintin. Don’t you see how a little miracle like this can take place in such an innocent encounter as interacting with a friend? Miracles don’t have to be life-moving or earth-shattering occurrences. They can be as simple as a friend deciding to call from out of the blue when you feel at your lowest, or your little baby hugging you to tell you he loves you when a tear is about to fall.
I hear Jesus talking to me then. When Alan puts an arm around me as I feel the weight of the world on my shoulders, I know it was He who prodded him to.
I cannot be happier to know that in sharing my own beliefs, I “spoke” to your burden and helped you some. And all I wanted to do was blog.. =)
