The unexpected answer

There are so many times as Christ followers that we pray for something that we really feel we need. Then there are times when you pray for something a couple of times that you really feel is important, and then you seem to forget about it for awhile. I just experienced one of those “forget about it” prayers. There was a real need for money for paying the fuel bill for this winter at the church and parsonage (finances in general are not so spectacular), but after praying a few times I did not continue to make it a matter of prayer. This morning I got a phone call to inform me that in one day about half of the total we need was given by an elderly couple (who has not been physically able to be at church for over 2 years)! What a God, the God of the Bible! His goodness is beyond measure. What an unexpected answer, to a rarely asked question!
