It doesn't always happen in the way I want or in the time I think I need it, but today, God answered this morning's prayer right away. Being prompted to step out in faith with a project I felt He led me to do with His eternal purposes in mind, I needed big bucks to begin, and folks have been giving to make it happen. I was still under-funded, so I prayed today again. And the check came in the mail minutes ago. Totally unexpected- and encouraging. Especially for those days when I wonder if He's listening (although I know He always does). Thank you, Jesus!
