Something Wonderful

Dear Friends — When a flood hit our area in late spring we have had a lot of work to recover. Actually we are still recovering and probably will be for some time.

In the past, if I did a lot of work during the day, it would affect my sleep at night. Depending on how hard I worked I would wake up at around 12, 2, or 4 unable to get back to sleep. To sleep well I limited strenuous activity to only 2-3 hours. Then I would rest the next day.¹

But when the flood came there was so much work to do that I worked from morning to night. I did this for a couple weeks. No matter how hard I worked I was sleeping at night. Amazing!

At first I thought how gracious of God to help me sleep. And Wow! What mighty prayer warriors we have! I was thankful to be working hard during the day and sleeping like a baby at night.

Now I am still able to work hard and sleep at night. This change in my work/sleep was not short lived. God has healed me. I am not sure how or why. I am just thankful. I have been living with these limitations for a long time. God has healed. Prayers have been answered. I am just praising the Lord!!

Except for the flood I may not have realized I was better. Tragedies have silver-linings. God is the God of all Hope. God brings good out of bad for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.²

I am So Glad —
