Symptoms Switcheroo

A few years into our marriage, we were at a crossroads.

Things were bad.

One of the ways I chose to respond was to fast and pray.

I knew very well the various physical feelings that come with fasting for varying lengths of time.  The crankiness, the  tiredness, the low energy, especially on the first day.

What was different about this fast was I experienced very few of these symptoms.  I felt normal and quite functional with my day.

And then David came home.  He had NOT fasted that day, but he had experienced all the symptoms I had expected to experience in my fast but did not.  He didn’t know what was happening to him.

I was awestruck.  God answered my prayer with this mysterious way of showing me He had made us one, regardless of how we felt at any given season of life, and we could trust Him to complete the good work He had already begun in us.
