A friend told me of a miracle that God did for him today so I told him I would write a blog of a miracle God did for me since it was too much to write on his spark mail.
THIS HAPPENED YEARS AGO.
I was travelling in Oklahoma. Two lady friends and I had been to a convention in a church in Oklahoma City. Convention was over. We couldn't sleep so decided to get up and drive back to Joplin Missouri where they lived.
We packed our stuff and opened the door. We couldn't believe our eyes. Snow everywhere and deep.
We decided to go anyway. I had no chains and don't think any snow tires but went across the turnpike. What guided me was the tail lights of the cars in front of me. The windshield started getting covered with snow. The windshield wipers couldn't keep up with it.
So out I would get clean off the windshield and go again. Finally I just couldn't keep up with it so I prayed.
Lord let the snow not touch my windshield. Then I saw the snow begin to rise over the car and it did not hit the windshield. I asked the ladies to look and see where the snow was hitting. They said it was not hitting the car at all.
I got to the toll booth at Tulsa and tried to cut the wheels so I would be closer to the booth but they would not cut so I had to get out and knock the ice off from around the tires.
We stopped and had coffee and it cleared up and we drove on to Joplin.
Now if God can do that
HE CAN HELP US TO LOSE WEIGHT IF WE ARE DESPERATE ENOUGH.
Please pray for our area as a hurricane is supposed to come in soon right where Alex came in before (more or less).
The land is still soaked from Alex.
So many things going on all over the world.
I could go on and on.
This is not something presidents or kings can fix.
It is something which calls us to obey:
2 Chron. 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves,
and seek my face,
and turn from their wicked ways;
THEN will I hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin,
and will heal their land.
Hope everyone is having a good time today. I will leave about 5:30 for my friends unless it starts raining. The hurricane isn't supposed to come in until midnight someone said.
God bless you all.
Yesterday I weighed in as many of you already know. I lost 2.25 pounds and am just 1/4 pound from my goal weight. I'm so happy. Now I must reach it and get a little below so I have a safety net.
I did not eat good for me at noon but I will tonight and try to be good the rest of the week.
SECOND GOOD REPORT I went to the bridge on the American side and met the pastor's wifes sister at a restaurant. I was able to pray with her for several situations and give her what I had for her.
Everything was tranquil and I was back closer to home in a few minutes.
We worry about going to Mexico!!!!!!!!!!!!
They had a shoot out a few days ago in Roma Texas just about 50 miles from me and where I lived when first coming to the area.
God is good. I felt safe and cared for although I went alone.
Thank everyone for your prayers and kind words.
I was finally able to get through to the pastor's mother in law today. I talked with one of the girls, sister of the pastor's wife, who came to meet me the last time at the border on our side.
The Lord willing, she will meet me Friday.
She said there were a lot of trucks going down their street last night. You know trucks that weren't usually there.
I am glad they caught one of the drug lords but usually that calls for more violence.
For now all of the church family is allright.
God bless all for your prayers and concern.
I haven't cried as much today.
I have laid it before God as He is the only one who can do anything.
