Part 6: God Hears Your Cry
Throughout our lives, we will make a myriad of decisions and transitions. During times of transition maybe things haven’t changed like you’ve wanted them to change. What do you do?
I am reminded that one of the best things we can do is cry out to the Lord. I remember several years ago, I cried out to the Lord about several things going on in my life. I was working at a job I did not like at all; I literally felt like I was losing brain cells on a daily basis. I loved the people I worked with, but the job itself was boring to me. And I desired some days off that I really wasn’t able to take. So I started praying and asking God for a new job and for some time off.
I remember crying out to God and asking Him to do what seemed like some very impossible things.
Jeremiah 29:11-12 says, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you” (NKJV).
A few months later, in March I received a phone call one day from a principal who had received my name from a friend. He said that he had a “very unusual situation” and needed an English teacher right away. He asked if I could come in for an interview the next day. I said, “Yes,” and the following day I took the position. With the position, I was given the summer months off, which was a well-needed break. Also, my pay doubled, and I received an all-expense paid trip to California.
God did even more than I asked Him for. He desires to do the same for you. Cry out to Him today and watch Him do the impossible for you!
