Y'all, my eldest daughter and I just read Sarah Whitcher's Story in homeschool. I cried at the end of it. Really. I know it's a read aloud for second graders, but I loved the story. This little girl was lost in the wilderness for 4 days and the search party couldn't find her. Her mom and dad prayed and prayed. God answered by giving a man from miles away that had never met her a dream about where to find her. He had never been to the area before, but was able to follow the landmarks of the dream. He found her where she had been sleeping with a bear that was guarding her as though it were her cub. By all accounts the story was true.
What I learned was that God is faithful and He goes out of His way to let His children know the HE hears them. He hears us.
