Titus 2 Tuesday: Lori

During this season of unemployment (or as I like to call it at this point "underemployment") I have been fortunate enough to maintain monthly appointments with my massage therapist.

I have always suffered with back issues, and since my insurance (because it's not a fantastic company group plan like I had when I was in the classroom) won't cover the pretty regular chiropractic visits I would need, I have, since I began nannying, had regular massages. Right before I lost my job I found Lori.

Lori was recommended to me by a friend, who told me that she first was a great massage therapist and most of all that she's a Christian...and that she will pray over you as she massages you.

So the timing of finding her was amazing. And somehow (only through God!) the money has been there each month to pay her. And the month that it wasn't she insisted that I come so she could give me a massage as a gift. Amazing.

I've felt amazing after each session, not only because of the healing massage, but because I know she was praying constantly as she worked.

When I saw her yesterday everything went as usual. At the end, as I was paying her and sipping a glass of water to rehydrate she said

"As I as praying over you today I very distinctly heard that I needed to tell you that God knows you've been faithful in waiting. That He knows and is aware of your trust in Him...and that great things are ahead. It's been hard, but you've made it look easy...and He knows that and wants you to know."
Oh, how I needed to hear that (without even realizing I needed to hear it!). God is amazing...love those little "notes" from him (to quote my friend Laura).

So thankful.

At first, I was confused about who was writing, then I got it. Wow. Blessed me. Thank you, for what you do and for being brave enough to tell Laura what the Lord placed on your heart, then for sharing it. Thanks.
