Sometimes God does something that I am not expecting and it totally blows me away.  Yesterday I was playing outside with the new dog I am dog-sitting and a guy in a truck pulls up.  He rolls down the window and asks me if I have seen a big white dog.  I tell him no but I will look for him while I am outside and when I go to work.  He says thanks and drives off.

I really don't think about it again because I have a very playful lab wanting me to throw the ball for him so I get back to it.  After about 15 minutes pass I go inside to get ready for work.  As I leave for work it's been about 45 minutes since the guy asks me about his dog.  I'm driving down the road and see the guy turn onto the road in front of me so I say a little prayer that God lets him find his dog.  I am not joking about this. In less than ONE MINUTE after saying the prayer I round a curve and the guy is loading up his dog.  I've had God answer prayers before but never that fast.

I thanked God and then smiled.  God is great.  Sometimes little prayers can have big effects.  It put me in a good mood for the rest of the day.  I really needed to see it.  I'm getting tired of being alone and God just reminded me that He does answer prayers.  Sometimes it might take awhile but other times it might be right away.  All we can do is say His Will be done and accept his way of answering our prayers.

Thank you Dear Lord for answering this prayer.  You amaze me.

Hope y'all have a good weekend!
