This is a great story! God truly gives us the desires of our hearts! Even if they are the simplest things like carrot cake!
I absolutely love carrot cake! It’s my favorite and we NEVER have it here! So of course I was heart wrenched when we had it on the fist day of our fast and I couldn’t have it! I’m sure I had a little something to say about this… but in the end, I felt so good about giving up my favorite desert on the only chance I’d ever have to eat it here! 🙂
So last week, I was eating with my friend Brandi, who believes in God, but gets all weirded out when people start talking about “God said this” or especially when I talk about having an argument with Him. She says she’s just not into God stuff or church. (I am working on this and God is definitely working on it.)
Anyways – lunch with Brandi, and I said “I sure hope we have carrot cake next week when I can eat again.”
And when I prayer for our food, I slipped in an “And please can we have carrot cake next week.”
I didn’t even remember I prayed this. So on Tuesday, the day we ended the fast – much to my surprise – we had carrot cake for lunch! I was so excited! But even more so when Brandi found me later and said “I can’t believe you prayed for carrot cake and got it!”
I was like “Oh – I sure did, didn’t I? See what God does.”
And I know she sees it! He’s so good that way. And He’s calling for her. I invited her to Bible study. But I gotta take baby steps with her. Please pray for Brandi. She has no idea what she’s missing by just believing and not wanting more of Him! I’m praying that she finds out soon! And I am so thankful that God uses little things like carrot cake to show us He hears us!
