Always answered prayers... Always

God provides. It is as simple as that. He always does the right thing at the right time, if you just have faith enough to believe that he will. Here is a small example of this. Yesterday was a very off day for me. Very. I got up late and didn't even go outside during the day. I went to bed last night in the same clothes I woke up in. This normally wouldn't be too big of a deal, except that I teach one of the college classes at church on Sundays, and had still yet to do the final preparation on my lesson. For some reason I just simply could not get it together to get it done. On top of this, I was doing the communion thoughts for the second service. All day I would think about these things, and even read through the entire book of Numbers (where my lesson was based) but never found the mental stability to sit down and get them lined out. Lesson preparation involves not only lining out the lesson but, for me, putting together a PowerPoint of at least twenty slides or so. Finally, at midnight, the pressure was inescapable and I had to really start. I put together about the first half of my lesson and slides and simply ran out of steam. This was about 2:30am. By this time I am very frustrated with myself and resorting to real, earnest prayers to God to somehow give me the words I needed to finish out class in the morning.

After sleeping through the Easter Sunrise service and our weekly Sunday morning prayer group (which I felt like a jerk for doing), I dragged myself into class ready to slop through some ideas and be done with it. While people are drifting in, I am telling my co-teacher about the lesson. Nic, who is one of the co-teachers of the other college class, which was combined with us today, was standing nearby and chimed in with "that sounds like my lesson for today."

Me: "What??"
Nic: "That's my lesson for today."
Me: "You're teaching?"
Nic: "Yeah. Gary said I had this week."
Me: "I'm on the schedule for this week."
Nic: "I guess he didn't think about the combined class."
Me: "Be my guest!!!"

In the end, we worked it out so that I taught the first half of class, and he picked it up from there. It worked together nicely, and I felt like class turned out really well. Then I scored a memorable communion thought by making everyone think the "F" word. But that's another story. :-)

So, I have always found that when I really, genuinely pray for God to intercede, he always does. Always. His provision always overcomes our shortcomings.

Praise God that He always comes through. Even when we can't seem to see how it will all work out. Thank you for the reminder.
