Here is another guest post by my wife, Clarissa.
The other night as bedtime neared, Noah went looking for his favorite bear which he calls “Teddy”. We looked all over the house, under the beds, behind the couches, dug through the toy boxes, checked the laundry room, the cars, the bathrooms, and even went through the pile of stuffed animals already in his bedroom!
We couldn’t find Teddy the bear anywhere! I gave up and decided we would hunt for him again the next day!
I prayed that God would help me find Noah’s bear before he fell asleep (which in our house takes like an hour and a half most nights), but I still didn’t find it. I was sad but knew I had looked everywhere.
So my bedtime had come and I was fixing the covers on our bed and as I’m straightening them, I see Teddy! I was so excited! I tried to wake Noah up to have him share in my excitement and relief but there he lay soundly sleeping! I gently laid Teddy into Noah’s arms and just felt happy! We found the lost bear, and when he wakes up the next morning, he will be just as happy as his mommy was… maybe more!!!
I’m thankful that God always answers our prayers! Even when it doesn’t happen in our timing or the way we expect! He is always faithful to answer.
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. (Philippians 4:6 NLT)
