I was in prayer today when the thought of my parents came into my spirit. I thank God they are now friends after 40 years of no communication. Suddenly a well of thankfulness rose up in me, and I began to weep. You see, my parents divorced when I was two; and my whole life, I have no memory of them even speaking to each other–let alone being in the same room.
Last year, my stepmom died tragically, and recently my brother invited my mom to a family gathering where my dad was in attendance. They started talking and are now friends. It’s like a lifelong dream that I never knew I had. I thought of a scripture that starts with, “Eyes have not seen nor ears heard… the things that God has prepared for them…” but I couldn’t remember it all. When I looked it up, I was awestruck. The whole verse says:
1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
“Neither have entered into the heart of man.” That dream never entered into my heart because it was an impossibility in my mind. But nothing is impossible with God (Luke 1:37)! God is able to do exceeding abundantly more than we could ever ask or think (Ephesians 3:20). Ain’t God good?!
I have been a single mom for nearly 7 years and hope to remarry someday. My parents’ reunion and the way God worked out several recent marriages and engagements in my church gives me renewed hope and faith to keep praying for my miracle. Then later today in my Bible reading I read this verse:
Haggai 2:19 I am giving you a promise now while the seed is still in the barn. You have not yet harvested your grain, and your grapevines, fig trees, pomegranates, and olive trees have not yet produced their crops. But from this day onward I will bless you.
I don’t know if God is trying to tell me something today, but I am all ears! I am overwhelmed with thankfulness, and my hope and faith have been renewed. Thank you, Lord, for your goodness and your Word.
