By Faith........

There is an old gospel song that's starts by saying: " My mother's prayers have followed me...." And this is true in my life as well.
I have seen my mother pray through so many situations, and I have seen God honor my mother because of her faith. Again, this week my life was blessed by her.
Most of you know that I have been struggling through some issues at work. I have now determined them to be a form of discrimination, and this week after 10 months of dealing with unacceptable behavior, I took a step, a step of faith.
After a situation on Wednesday, I went and spoke to my doctor on Thursday morning and we came to the conclusion that I take time off until this is resolved, or I get another job. As you probably have followed a long, I have been interviewing with a company that I am very interested in, and I should find out on Tuesday if I got the position.
It was a fearful step that I took, going forward, knowing that I don't' yet have a new job to go to.....and yet, God answers prayer.
It was on Wed night, during the night, that my mother awoke and prayed that God would give her an answer in the morning, if I would have the new job, so that she could comfort me in my uncertainty. She asked that God would speak to her in her morning devotions and that she would be clear of His answer. And in the morning, the answer came......
"Jesus replied, 'I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, "Go throw yourself in to the sea,' and it will be done. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer."
And so, I have started to thatnk God for the new opportunity that will come to pass this week.....and once again, I am grateful that my mother's prayers have followed me.
