After considering the help of the Lord yesterday, and the prayer in that beautiful psalm that God might send help and support, I did indeed wonder about the kind of help God sends when we feel overwhelmed.
As I’m thinking about the Lord sending help, I’m amazed that several strange things happen in quick succession. First, my dear friend and one of the Italian Mamas calls to announce she’s delivering dinner to my family—her Chicken Parmigiana. Then, my husband decides to fold the laundry and clean the kitchen–the last few things on my list of things to do. Then, various friends reach out to connect out of the blue. Did the Holy Spirit prompt them? Did God hear my prayer?
As I train my mind to recognize and then rejoice in Divine Activity, I’m amazed at what life looks like when you see God answering your prayer for help.
