Lessons From A Cricket

Hi Everyone,

So not having my bird has been an adjustment these past three weeks. It has been neat to see God's faithfulness in the midst of the fact that I miss having something to come home to, take care of, and enjoy. However I think there are many ways that God is reminding me to enjoy my relationship with Him.

About four days ago, when I came home, I was just like, "Lord, I miss having something in my room--can't you just like---send me something?" Strangely that same night there was a cricket chirping quite loudly all night long. At first it drove me crazy-all i wanted it to do was "please be quiet!" I thought about killing it, but somehow throughout the next day, I remembered what I had prayed and the little cricket began to grow on me---and I am actually enjoying it's presence now.

So I guess the cricket is my "pet" for now.....and every time I hear him chirp away it reminds me that God cares about the deep desires of my heart----and knows the answer to my needs before I even ask.

The cricket is quite cozy heading between the floor under my night stand and the floor under my bed. It feels like I am camping out every night (without the mosquitoes!)

God is good---May our hearts be overflowing in gratitude towards Him!

Dear one....How precious for you to realize the LORD in this. I have also experienced this from Him. How blessed we are!

I have fervently prayed for a solution, nothing happens like I want it to, but the LORD does something else. The something else is HUGE to you (although others may say it was nothing). The something else may not be anything like you expected Him to do, but the something else has blessed you and lifted your head in a way that draws you even closer to Him! Praising God with you!
