My Dear Devout Christian Mother will celebrate her 96th birthday next month. While visiting her yesterday , she had to share a story as she almost always does how God had answered yet another prayer.
To frame this story, I bought my Mother a satellite TV system so she could watch all of her favorite programs that her cable company did not offer. Her satellite remote also operates her TV functions as well. She has from time to time manage to hit the wrong button , then my phone rings as I am “customer support” 🙂
Back to her story. The night before, she hit a wrong button which caused the TV to show a blank screen. She tried to figure it out on her own to no avail . She decided it was time to go to bed anyway so she turned everything off with her remote. The next morning she grabbed her remote and asked God to please let her TV come on correctly. Sure enough, when she pressed the “On Button” , the TV came back on to the channel she was watching the night before.
She used this story to point out to me that God really is concerned about the smallest things in our lives too. Since my expertise is in the field of electronics, I knew, but didn’t have the heart to point out to her that her TV and satellite receiver simply booted up to their default settings when she turned them back on thereby reverting back to whatever she was watching the night before.
Isn’t God wonderful ?
