Floored! By Favour!

I had to tell someone something.  I had to let them know my plans because my plans would affect them and their plans.  And....I kept putting it off.  I kept saying "tomorrow".  I had no peace about telling them and vaguely I wondered if it is because I would be uncomfortable or if I was stalling?

Then the moment arrived.  They phoned and asked if they could visit for tea.  I said yes,  I put the kettle on, and decided this was the moment, this was the time!  I had to tell them now!

We made tea, said our pleasantries and before I could say anything, they told me of their plans!  Their plans were exactly the plans needed to get me off the hook.  I did not need to tell them anything.  Their actions had prevented me from doing something that I felt uncomfortable about, something I felt was unpleasant.

So, we chatted about what they planned to do and we expressed our joy for them and told them we were happy for them and when they left I did a dance of joy around the house.


How awesome is God that He removed this potentially unpleasant task from us?!  How awesome is He that He made this seem like their idea and not one they could potentially in time try to blame us for?!  I was so GRATEFUL in that moment, so HUMBLED and SO HAPPY!

THE SAME DAY, I tackled my computer knowing that because of it crashing and being repaired and my lack of knowledge in trying to find my lost info (but found by the technician and placed "I don't know where" on my hard drive),  I knew I had to redo 12 months worth of accounting!  I was resigned to it after whining about it all weekend.  So, I started preparing to do the work, and.... wait a minute.... what is that?  I played a little more, I tweaked a little more... and is that really what I am seeing?

YES!!!!!  Its there!  I found it!!!!  I do not have to redo 12 months of slog in a hurry!!!!  I AM SO GRATEFUL I just had to do another dance of joy!


Now anyone who has been reading my blog for any length of time will know that the last 6 years have been agony.  Painful!  Hard years of emotional trauma and devastation in my family.  But that has come to an end and God has given us victory over lies and deceit and now we are in a season of great favour.  What I am trying to say to you is this:  DON'T GIVE UP!  NEVERY GIVE UP!  God is not done!  He is working in your circumstance.  He loves you and He cries with you and He IS CARRYING you.  DON'T GIVE UP!

Psalm 31 v 24:  Be strong and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for and hope for and expect the Lord!

God bless
Tracy

  2. Hi Tracy! What a great image, Snoopy dancing! It really does illustrate your point so well. So happy for you, isn't God wonderful? He does know the desires of your heart.

    I really haven't known you for very long, so I don't know about your troubles, but I am so happy that they are coming to an end. I can feel your joy!

    Happy Monday!

  4. A totally uplifting post!!

    How gracious God is - sometimes removing difficult and unpleasant tasks from us when we least expect it. He's so kind.

    I guess He's good at it - seems to me that His sacrifice also spared us the difficult and unpleasant agony of judgment, too! He's so kind!

    GOD BLESS!

  7. Good Morning Tracy,
    I was just thinking on how so many times He will do this very thing, if we will but wait for His timing! I am so trying to learn this.
    I am so happy for you of realizing God's favor in this time.I declare to our God it will never stop for those who love Him.
    I really enjoy reading your post! Have a wonderful week!
    Blessings, Roxy

  8. I know God is smiling and dancing too because when we are happy - - and praise him, HE is happy too. Thanks for sharing here at "Tell Me a Story." God is so good.

    Oh yes, no problem about the duplicate. It was easily fixed just like your blessed computer.

  9. YEP!! I agree. I walk through some of what you do. AND I can only rely upon our Lord to let me know what, when, and where He wants me to be.. for Him, forever.

    Thank you.
