The Year Of Small Expectations…Part 2
I thought it important to write about the fact that suffering is one of the marks of a believer and it struck a chord with many of you.
I also wrote that I hoped for some mercy along the way.
Now…the rest of the story…
I was driving home last night after taking Trey home from work…praying and agonizing over what to do about Miss Kitty.
Should I take her to the ER so she could get treated immediately or risk waiting another night and take her to her normal vet?
She’d not had food or water for two days…cats kidneys start to deteriorate soon after that long without either.
She needed treatment now..but the emergency hospital cost way more than I had.
I was sitting at stop light and finished my prayer… “Lord have mercy on Missy and I”… and immediately a donation notice popped up on my phone.
A name I hadn’t seen before.
It was in almost the exact amount needed to take her to the hospital.
It was the hand of God bringing the mercy of God.
Unexpected, inexplicable, but real.
I’m slow, but I knew what to do at that point.
I left the truck running as I gathered up my feline friend and off to the hospital we went.
Four hours later, I brought Miss Kitty home alive and happily medicated.
She went straight to her bowl and ate…and ate some more after that.
She’ll need some dental work done later, but she’s still with us and with me.
God had mercy.
I never thought I’d be able to tell a story like this, but I’m very grateful I can.
That’ll teach me to make fun of George Mueller…
Thank you, Lord and thanks to your human hand who heard you.
Expect suffering, pray for mercy, receive what He gives.
Make your own application…
