Stalling the Ineveitable

I've always had trouble with my cycle: from cramps, to heavy flows, to unpredictability... I've thrown up, passed out, lost my peripheral vision, and everything in between. So when I realized that my period was due for a visit during my first mission trip, I was worried. I was already worried about spending a whole week with people—I'm not usually a people person. Adding PMS on top of that seemed like a recipe for disaster. To top it off, it was due around the time I was planning to go hiking through the rainforest so that I could go zip lining and cave tubing. It seemed like a horrible situation.

So, every day I was praying that God would work a miracle.

On Wednesday, my period showed up a whole 2 days early; the exact opposite of what I was praying for. That didn't stop me, though. I asked God to basically pause my period so I could enjoy the zip lining and cave tubing. I asked Him to make the actual period light and painless so that I could continue to help on Friday and not having any problems on Sabbath. When I woke up Thursday morning, I hadn't bled all night. My period actually stopped until Thursday night. I had minimal cramp when it resumed and it was much lighter than usual.

Matthew 7:7 says that if we ask, it will be given to us. I asked, and God gave.

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
