She Said Yes

When my mother and father divorced, he started dating another woman and they later had a child together. I always wondered about this little girl. I knew her name but I didn’t know what she looked like, what type of person she’d grown up to be.

A few years ago I tried to find her online. I was able to find out she graduated from college and where she lived. I called her and left a message, but she didn’t return my call. Her brother called and said she wasn’t ready to meet me and my sister. We were disappointed and a little hurt, but we refuse to give up. She was our sister and we wanted to meet her.

Fast forward to now, I’m on facebook looking up old friends and the Spirit says look up your sister, to my surprise her picture pops up on facebook. She’s beautiful and she looks a little like our family. I’m so excited, I call my sister and send her the picture. She excited too because even if we never meet her in person we know what she looks like.

I send her a message and pray she replies. Two days past and nothing, my sister calls to see if I heard anything. NO

Today she accepted my friendship and sent a message. GOD YOU ARE AMAZING!

She wants to get to know us. YES! YES! YES!

I’m in tears at work, because this a long time prayer answered. I’m telling you prayer works. You just have to STAND and wait on the Lord.

To my sister if you read this, please know I’m excited to get to know you. I’ve waited a long time and I too believe this is God’s intervention. He knew when we all were ready to meet each other.

I look forward to getting to know you and I pray that we get to meet in person, because we owe you years worth of hugs.

For those still waiting on your prayers to be answered, STAND.
