Asking God for what you need

Posted Posted by admin in Blog (Weekly), Blogs     Comments No comments

Do you ask God (Universe, Spirit, Higher Power, Love) for what you want and need? I have learned over the years to ask God for everything and to trust that if it’s for my highest good, it will happen. God wants us to ask and believe our prayers will be answered. Sometimes the answer is yes, no or wait.  Ask and you shall receive.

I started asking for help at a very difficult time in my life when my ex-husband had been unemployed for a year and we had 4 children under the age of 10. Here is a powerful story of answered prayer:

“God, Joe needs shoes for his job interview. You know we can’t afford $150 for a new pair of black wing tip shoes. I know this is not the usual request and it may take awhile to find size 12D at a yard sale. I trust you God”

God must look down and smile at some of my unique prayer requests. A size 12 D man’s shoe was a tall order, even for God.

A few weeks later after my request for shoes, I did a double take when I walked into the yard sale and spotted boxes of shoes stacked neatly on the table. I raced over to the table, my heart pounding. I carefully opened all the boxes hoping to find size 12 D black wing tip shoes. It didn’t look like they had any men’s shoes and was about to give up and leave. With that, a man walked over and asked, “Do you need help?”

I answered, “You don’t have what I’m looking for” and proceeded to tell me what I wanted. He said, “Wait a minute, I think I have some larger sizes over here. Follow me.” I held my breath anticipating what he might find. He opened all the boxes searching for size 12D.

“Yes, here we go. Is this what you are looking for?” He held up a new shiny pair of black wing tip shoes size 12D. I could hardly get the words out of my mouth. “Are you sure they are a size 12D?” He answered, “Yes, lady, look the size is right here.” I asked, “How much?” He thought about it for a moment and then said, “Twenty-Five dollars will do.”  I said, “It’s a deal, I will take them.”

God’s love and care never ceases to amaze me and I wanted to shout it from the housetops. I couldn’t hold back and blurted out. “I’m so happy I came here today. My husband is out of work and he has a job interview next week and we couldn’t afford to buy new ones. I’ve been praying and knew God would answer my prayers.”

He looked at me kindly and said, “I sold my shoe store a year ago and these shoes were the leftovers. They weren’t doing any good sitting in my basement and I just wanted to get rid of them. Glad you found what you were looking for.”

I held my breath when I got home as my husband tried on the new size 12D wing tip shoes. Just like Cinderella, the shoes fit like a glove.

I would like to share how I was provided for this past week. Larry and I belong to a Love group that has been meeting for the last 3 years. One of the members, Joseph, was very excited about reading a book called, Medical Medium by Anthony William. He also read his book, called Celery Juicing and was raving about the amazing health results he was experiencing since he started the celery juice detox.

I knew it would be a big commitment buying the organic celery, preparing it and cleaning up every day. But I was interested and put it out there to God, “I don’t have a juicer, so if you want me to do this, you will have to provide one.” I checked Craigs list but there weren’t any for sale. So, I waited.

Another member of the love group, John, was also interested in doing the celery juice detox and after the group suggested to his wife that they do it together. They decided to buy the celery juicer recommended by Anthony William.

John texted me the next day and said, “We bought a new juicer, would you like our old one? My wife used it 2 years ago and it’s a Jack La Lanne Power Juicer.” Of course, I said, “YES” and started juicing a week ago. I’m really enjoying it and am expected great results.

Thank you, God for your faithfulness and teaching me to trust you that you are always guiding, providing and protecting me. God’s timing is perfect, never late or early, but right on time.
