After we brothersofencouragement decided on a name for this daily scripture blog (atablesetbeforeme), I just needed some validation for this project, from God. I was at unrest. I kept thinking: “God, you are asking me to do something that is not of my invention, this is yours!” ….and immediately I thought of the “Prayer of Jabez.” This book, which teaches how to ask for personal blessings was lodged in my mind and I began searching my house. I found it! But as I opened it, I realized it was not the book I had marked up and read dozens of times, it was a book I had given my Mother. The date I was searching for the book? August 27, 2017. The date I had given it to my Mother as a birthday gift? August 27, 2000! 17 years earlier….exactly. And at about the same time of the day I would have met her for supper in Grenada MS. A divine appointment!
