Sometimes the Answer to Your Prayers Is a Kick in the Pants on FacebookPosted: September 30, 2013
The other night I was feeling a bit discouraged about my life. As I said my evening prayers, I felt prompted to check my phone. It was sitting right there; I could see the little light flashing.
I thought, that’s silly. Why would I need to check my phone now? It’s bedtime. But I did check it.
The little light was flashing because one of my friends had responded to a complainy post of mine on Facebook. Basically, he told me that I should stop whining and get up and do; that I was still in my twenties, for heaven’s sake, and my life was far from over. It was a good kick in the pants. It was what I needed to hear.
And the funniest part is, it felt good to get a good kick in the pants on Facebook. I felt from God that I was loved and that I was not forgotten about. I am always grateful when the Lord chews me out with love.
