God Answers Prayer!

In case you doubted it. I just have to give credit where credit is due. Since we pulled Gabe back home for school it has been a roller coaster ride of good and bad days. I knew sending him back to school was not an option. It stresses him completely out - to the point of incapacitating him. He literally would be in a heap on the floor crying. But, he was not doing well with me either. We do not work well together. He is terrified of messing up or looking dumb in front of me. No matter how many times I would say that I didn't care if he got things wrong as long as he gave it a shot, he would still freeze up at any hint of new material that he could not just fly through. I prayed and prayed and came up with the thought of having someone come to our home to teach him. Immediately a person at our church came to mind, she is licensed as a special education teacher and has worked with all sorts of kids, but she has 3 kids of her own that she homeschools and I just wrote it off thinking she would be too busy. A couple of weeks later at Wednesday night service I raised my hand for prayer. The people who gathered and prayed for me, without knowing the circumstance, were able to pray exactly for what I needed. I felt such peace and comfort walking out of that service. Then on my way down the hall to get D from class I looked up at the bulletin board and saw a flyer for tutoring. Yep, you guessed it. Same lady I had thought of. I actually laughed out loud. God is so good. So I called her and she laughed with me(: It is actually an answer to prayer for them as well since her husband hasn't had much work in this economy. G has been going to her for two weeks now and is doing GREAT! His attitude with her is wonderful and it sort of spills over into his attitude with me. She is an outside source telling him that he is smart. He may be more likely to believe her!

It may seem like a small thing, but it was such an encouragement to me exactly when I needed it. So maybe it will give you hope as well that God does hear us and He does answer, just at the right time.
