I have to admit that the last few months have been tough on me and especially on my faith. I was beginning to head back down a road that would lead me away from the church. I was losing faith because it seemed like God wasn’t there. And then He did it again…
He answered another prayer for me. I asked Him for some guidance and some help with a problem, one that I won’t discuss because it involves another person, and He gave me the guidance I needed. He told me what to do, I did it and the person I needed to help turned a corner.
I spend a lot of time contemplating things like whether God listens to us and answers our prayers. I have been writing things down, things that have happened to me throughout my life and that I think were a direct result of God’s help, guidance, or intervention. (Do I see a book in the future?) At first I thought these things were all coincidences. I would pray about something and a few days later I would get an answer. I would ask for help and I would get it. But I ask you, how many times to these things happen, call them signs, miracles or answered prayers, before they aren’t coincidences any longer?
The second thing I would like to bring up is a friend of mine could use your prayers and if possible some financial help. Her ex-husband is fighting for custody of their daughter, whom Cat has always had with her. Earlier this summer he even abducted her, taking her across state lines. This forced Cat to move back to Massachusetts from North Carolina, using up her savings so she doesn’t have the money she needs for a lawyer to fight this.
Here is a link to a GoFundMe account she has set up and if any of you could help her it would be greatly welcomed. I don’t know the whole story behind all this, but I do know that Cat is a great mother who does everything and gives everything to her children and to others as well. I also know her to be a faithful Catholic.
So if you can, please donate but if you can’t that’s okay too, but please pray for her.
Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come you who are blessed by my Father. In herit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stanger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.’ Then the righteous will answer him ans say, ‘Lord, when did see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? When did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you?’ And the King will say to them, ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.’ – Matthew 25: 34 – 40
