When God Calls

Several years ago now, when my husband was deployed to be exact, he heard God calling him into the Ministry. We talked about getting out of the Military so that he could go to Seminary, but it wasn't the right time to do it at that time. So, I started praying 3 years ago to God this specific prayer each day. "Dear Lord, I pray that my husband will be able to somehow attend Seminary and yet, still retire out of the Army, without having to retire first or get out of the Army and then go to Seminary. Lord if that is your will, I know that You can make it happen. "

So, everyday I prayed this prayer for 3 years. A few months ago my Husband came home from work one day and told me about a local college that offered Seminary classes and the at he was thinking about possibly enrolling, but he wasn't sure if he wanted to attend this one college or another one that was in another state. A lot of the classes he could do online, but for some, he would have to take some of the classes at the College itself. He looked at me and he asked me,"How long have you been prayer?" I said,"Praying about what?" He said,"Praying for me and Seminary." I told him,"3 years."

Folks...........GOD IS GOOD! The past few weeks have been exciting in our house! The Husband decided against both of those schools and we found another Seminary that is so much better and caters to the Military and all of his classes can be taken online! And yes, he will be done in less than four years, which equals that amount of time that we have left remaining in the Army! And another yes, we have decided that 20 years is enough, he is going to retire, so that he can go into Ministry.
He got accepted into Seminary and just received his books and DVDs yesterday.....he can't wait til classes start in a week or two!

God hears us when we pray. Lots of times we want answers now, but God will always answer us and He always answers in His time.

Think about all of the blessings that God has given to you and finish this phrase, " I know I am blessed because......................................
