Transparent Tuesday

Today's transparent Tuesday topic is an update of sorts. Back in March I posted about friendships and told you about a childhood friend with whom I'd lost touch. Click here to read the original post.

Transparent Tuesday Topic: Answered Prayers

In case you didn't read it, I'll give you the short and skinny. We'd been friends since we were 7 y.o. We were each others' maids of honor. We were sure to be friends for life. But suddenly, communication stopped. No apparent reason, no big fallout...she just stopped returning my calls and even calling on my birthday which we've done every year since we were little.

Well, I posted about how friendships can be really difficult and I began praying for our relationship. Following that post, several of you even committed to pray for this relationship too (how cool are ya'll?!)

Several weeks ago, guess who I received a phone call from?!...you guessed it, she called. I was so excited. She had seen my facebook posts about my father's dealings with cancer so she called to check on him. This was just what she needed to break the ice.

We talked for nearly an hour and even made plans for her to come down for a visit. It was so good to reconnect with this sweet friend. Honestly, we never addressed our "time off" from each other. We just relished in the reconnection and what I see as an answered prayer. 

Know what else I find comfort in? Knowing that God was hard at work during a very stressful time in my life. He was answering past prayers at just the right time. He sent me my friend back exactly when I needed her most!

So, friends, if I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times...Prayer works. Is there something in your life you'd like prayers for? It can be anything, big or small. Please leave me a comment for send me an email: dfrieling1@gmail.com. I'd love to cover you with this amazing gift.

I was just listening to a sermon about prayer and what happens between "ask" and "receive." The general point was that when we pray for one thing, God does 10,000 to make it happen, so His timing is always perfect for us, even when we would like things to happen more quickly. Really powerful. :)
