One reason she listens to God's voice daily

How Jesus Speaks to Us "There's a family in our church which has basically not been able to feed itself for two weeks." http://assets.nydailynews.com/ ... /alg-slope-soup-kitchen-jpg.jpg
"There's a family in our church which has basically not been able to feed itself for two weeks."

A few years back, I was praying regularly and felt the need to tithe someplace.  I thought I heard I should tithe to my mother's church.  But I postponed taking any action for two weeks  (remember this number).

After those two weeks, I sent a check in the mail to the pastor as a love offering.  That very afternoon, my Mom (who knew nothing about the mailed check or the delayed decision) called to say, "Carol, we need to pray.  There's a family in our church which has basically not been able to feed itself for two weeks."

Ahem.  Two weeks

What I took away from this episode was that had I immediately taken action at the time God had prompted me, it may have been able to prevent that family from dealing with hunger the past two weeks.  This helped me believe that not only God's instructions, but his timing is important to act upon.
