I received a very special phone call this morning. K-Love radio called me just to ‘check-in’ and see if I had any prayer requests. I was taken back and didn’t really know how to respond at first. I thought for a minute and then opened up to the lady on the other end of line. I told her about Twizzler and her cancer. And I asked for prayers not only for healing for her, but for financial peace for Christopher and myself. We talked a few minutes about Twizzler’s situation and I could hear her typing in the background. She was literally taking notes. She asked if there was anything else that the pastors and K-Love family could be praying for. I didn’t want to feel needy, but truly felt it on my heart to ask for prayer for my sister. I asked that God’s will be shown to her and that she is able to fully trust Him no matter the plan He has in store. We spoke for a few minutes about my sister and then we wrapped up the conversation. After I got off the phone with her, I thought of a million other things I could have asked for prayer… safety for an upcoming mission trip my church is going on, the health of a relative, God’s will as my parents both end and begin a new journey… the list goes on.

It was by no mistake that K-Love called today. God planned that and I’m sure the lady on the phone has no idea what kind of impact she made on my day. What a blessing that radio station continues to be to my life. Continue reading
