Since attending the CUE conference last year I have increased my prayer life. I met a woman there who took a necklace off her neck and gave it to me. Her daughter had given it to her. It says PUSH which she explained stands for Pray Until Something Happens. I took the necklace and decided to dedicate it to finding my mom and when I find her I will give her the necklace and explain how prayer led to our finding each other again!
Well last week after even new disappointments in my journey I asked God while praying to please give me some kind of sign that he does not want me to give up! Some sign that me pursuing this is HIS will and not just mine! Something to hold on to when my vision for answers fades... As time passes .... Help me not to loose my faith that one day I will FINDMYWAYHOME!
So today I came home from work and there was an email from the woman who gave me this necklace... Hummm I read curious what she had to say... Well it turns out that last week the LRC (Laura Recovery Center) got a call from a reporter asking if they would help a woman who was kidnapped at 5 yrs old by a neighbor and taken to CA. LRC is based in TX and that is where the woman was taken from. Sandy (my dear friend who gave me the necklace) answered the phone when the reporter called. She did an on air Interview on the news I think she said it aired at 10pm and calls started coming in at 10:30pm with information of this woman's family. I guess there were 9 children in all. She is the woman who we all saw the clip to who was reunited with her Aunt and sister on the weekend Good Morning America show!
OK How amazing is that! How much God loves me to give me such a personal message of encouragement! I have always said that God is like the ultimate Puzzle maker the way HE takes one situation and works it together to fit in so many different places. How many people have found encouragement from this one situation and HE cared enough about me to make me one side of the puzzle piece!
Thanks for letting me share... Keep PUSHING we are getting somewhere...
Love you all
