The husband woke up with a start as his wife poked him in the ribs, almost shouting, “Honey, it’s time; the baby’s coming.”  As soon as he was dressed, and the “delivery day,” suitcase was in the car, along with mommy and baby, they headed for the hospital.  How exciting!

About 3 1/2 hours later, the labor pains increased in intensity.  Mommy was already tired of this ordeal.  “Oh, I wish this baby would hurry up and get here already,” she said. “Where’s your faith,” asked Daddy.  “Hang in there, Honey; God’s got perfect timing,” he said.  She gritted her teeth, moaned, and squeezed Daddy’s hand as hard as she could when the next pain came..  “Ouch,” exclaimed Daddy.  “Do you have to squeeze that hard?”  Mommy wasn’t impressed with Daddy’s attitude.  You promised you’d be here for me, Honey,” Mommy said. “Remember, we’re in this together.”  “I know, I know,” said Daddy.  “I just need a little break.  Think I’ll go get some coffee, if you don’t mind.”   Then Daddy realized that he’d forgotten his wallet.  “Honey, do you have any cash on you?  I forgot my wallet in the rush to get here,” said Daddy.   Mommy, still a little miffed, and very much in pain, replied, “Silver and gold have I none, but what I do have, in Jesus’ Name, I give to you.”  Daddy doubled over instantly, and dropped to his knees, clutching his tummy.  There he was, in pain as that stomach flu hit him and caused those awful cramps.  Daddy woke up from his dream with a start.  He looked at Mommy, who was sound asleep and smiling.  “Lord,” Daddy prayed, “please don’t let me forget my wallet when it’s time…and please help me be a good helper in the delivery room.”   LOL

Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, is about when faith fails.  It’s a good one, and I hope you’ll check it out at twolisteners.org.  When I read it, I thought of Peter trying to walk on the water…and later, healing a crippled man with those very words: Silver and gold have I none, but what I do have, in Jesus’ Name, I give to you.  That inspired this little story.  I wish I’d thought of that when I was having my babies…I’m kidding, their dad was awesome in the delivery room.

Keep the Faith- Keep the Miracles Coming

eden08122015

Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, reminds us that Jesus cannot work miracles in our lives if we don’t believe in Him.  “Be it unto you according to your faith,” and, “Your faith has saved you,” are two things Jesus spoke.

I found out when I began to pray, just lifting everyone up to the Lord, and thanking Him for all He’s given me-and all He’s withheld, my walk changed.  By that, I mean that it sort of set the tone for the whole day to one of faith.  I stopped waiting for the other shoe to fall.  Worry, anxiety, upset over little things just went out the window.  Here’s the awesome part.  As I grew into this attitude of faith, I found more and more things to be thankful for, because God’s got me.  Let me tell you what a weight comes off your shoulders!  You find yourself smiling more, frowning less, and laughing so much at some of the little stuff that used to send you over the edge.

This attitude is the same attitude those two women in the Bible had.  “I know who you are, Lord, and I know who I am!  I know you are my miracle!”  Note, please, that I said, He is your miracle.  Guess what; when you got saved, you got your miracle.  You got all the miracles in that one!  You have to but trust the Lord, and walk in His promises.  “I will never leave you or forsake you.”  “Ask, and you shall receive, seek, and you shall find, knock, and it will be opened to you.”  When we walk in an attitude of faith, and, I believe, thanksgiving and praise, that door stays open to us.

Keeping that thankfulness, praise, that faith, is part of the battle. -The greatest part of the battle.  Do what you have to do to stay strong in your faith!
