Ryan’s Miracle Watch 4/25/18

Many of you know I used to be a salesman. And, some of you still think I’m trying to sell something, but that’s for another discussion. With regard to my past profession, my sales cycle could take anywhere from 2 months to 2 years to sell something to any given account…that’s if after any given period of time, those accounts actually ended up purchasing something; which, a majority of the time, they did not. Anyway, the point is that when I did make a sale (aside from the money) there came with it a great deal of personal satisfaction from being patient and persistent; some things that took many years for me to learn to be comfortable with. And honestly, I’m still learning to be comfortable with them. Much of God’s plan for me has been to teach me patience and persistence; attributes that I’ve been taught not only from various jobs, but through many events during my entire (very short…I’m 39)life. His plan has prepared me to be patient for Ryan’s healing, and persistent in prayer for his healing in His time; something that comes quite naturally to me because of past jobs, life lessons, and etc.

So, when I perform a menial task, such as mowing the lawn, turning over the soil in my garden, painting a room, and other things that don’t take very long, I get a great amount of satisfaction having seen something completed in such a short period of time. I hope I explained that properly. It’s late, and I don’t feel like editing…

Point is: BE PATIENT, BE PERSISTENT, LEARN IN VICTORY AND ESPECIALLY IN FAILURE, ENJOY THE PROCESS, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH. MOST IMPORTANTLY THOUGH, KNOW DEEP IN YOUR HEART THAT GOD IS IN CONTROL AND HE’LL HEAL AND REDEEM US IN HIS TIME. OH, AND DON’T FORGET TO THANK AND PRAISE HIM FOR IT!

Final thought for the day: Instant gratification takes too long.

  1. Great post Bret.  Thanks for sharing. I have a hard time praying for Ryan’s healing because I don’t see it happening this side of heaven.  That’s my lack of faith.  But, I can pray that God will continue to work in Ryan’s  life and the lives of those around him. That’s where the miracles are.  I’m seeing that through your posts.  If God does heal Ryan physically, then an indescribable awed day that will be. Thanks for expanding my faith, and helping me to see the healing process differently through your posts! barb
