God is amazing. And I love how He shows his wondrous power in the most incredible ways. The last few weeks have been stressful and discouraging. A few nights ago, I couldn’t sleep. As I stared at the dark walls in my bedroom, I prayed about our family. Living with autism can be so trying. I told God I didn’t want to live like this anymore. We needed help, someone to show us how to make things better. I remember praying, Lord, I wish You would speak to me audibly. I know You make impressions on my heart and speak through Your Word, but I wish I could have tea with You and You’d just talk to me face-to-face.

So, last night my husband called me over to the computer while I was doing dishes and again praying for direction with Rachel: Should we sign this RDI (Relationship Development Intervention) contract next week? Is this going to help us? Are we ready? Once I’d dried my hands, my husband nodded his head toward the screen where he’d pulled up FamilyLife MomBlog.

“Have you looked at this yet?”

I shook my head.

He headed to corral Rachel who was playing under her sleeping bag in the corner. “You need to read the comments, as well.”

I sat down and looked at “God’s Provision in Economic Crisis,” and there was my answer to prayer. A woman I’ve never met wrote to me in the words I’d been wanting to hear from God. I teared up. It was like He’d spoken to me, just as I’d asked.

Wow. And thanks, Susan T., for praying for me.
