Take a rock to work

In my silk dress and high heels I climbed a hill on the way to work to get a rock.

At the time I worked for an Orthodontist, and we were experiencing an uncertain time.

Habakkuk 2:2-3 states “2And the LORD answered me: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.”

My friend, Charlie, told me once, “Kim, your faith should be so strong that you write your prayers in stone.” This advice was based on the above Scripture in Habakkuk.  I wrote my prayers based on this verse in a journal.  After months went by I read the journal and realized over 40 prayers had been answered…in abundance of what I asked. They were not all answered the way I thought was best, but were all answered in God’s divine will and wisdom. Journaling my prayers helped me to realize God’s active part and power in my life. God acts. He will and he does act in our lives.

So, on our rock I wrote “Lord, we believe you will…” and invited everyone to write their prayers. My associates looked at me strangely at first, but throughout the day prayers appeared all over that rock. That rock became a special prayer tool for all of us. We demonstrated our faith, prayed together, and celebrated God answering prayers and working in our lives.
