A Prayer Answered
A prayer of mine was answered today. The Disabled Employment Officer was I think, the first person to recognise the clinical depression I had - this was last year sometime. Well since I last saw her, I've had the mindfulness therapy, passed the ITQ exam and completely recovered from the depression. (It was also the DEO who gave me the advice on where to get help re: financial issues etc.) I can't remember when I got involved with the Shaw Trust (a charity that help the disabled find employment) but from then on I haven't been under her juristiction. I've been wanting to contact her to give her the good news etc but wondering whether I should. After everything she'd done for me, I wanted to bring her up to date. Well, just lately I've been sending 'arrow-prayers' up to God, asking what I should do - to give me a sign if you like. Well today I was on my way home from the bus stop when I suddenly remembered I needed something from the shop so I made a little detour. Suddenly low-an-behold there she was. She recognised me instantly, even though I hadn't been to see her for months. I was able to tell her how things had gone and how much better I was. This is more than just a coincidence I'm sure, and believe that God was really listening to me.
