This day has been amazing. i am pulling weeds and my neighbor says that’s poison. i say what kind. He don’t know if it is. i say a prayer over my hands for protection and keep pulling. i ask God where He is? How can i be in the garden and not Feel God. This is the place i PROCLAIM WE MEET GOD. yet here i am no God that i can see. i start thinking about how awesome this day is. Rejoicing in the Lord for the weather, and the day only getting better with each passing moment.
i then think of “it’s poison and say who are you satan to call that which God made bad or good.” then God shows me how well classify things as good and evil. that when we focus on “oh no i put my hands in poison what will i do? than start thinking of all the ramifications that come with poison. We take our focus off God. Stop seeing what He might want to do with it. If someone is stricken with terminal cancer, and meets the Lord there and follows in their heart. Was cancer bad or good? If the child who was born into poverty meets the Lord in a garbage dump, Is the poverty bad, the garbage dump? satan will get us to look at things as bad and good. God said if it Glorifies me, brings you into deeper fellowship with me, then poison ain’t so bad now is it? This i think is how God is going to get me to stop fearing. If i see everything from His viewpoint then whatever brings me closer to Him is worth it. This is when i realized God had been with me the whole time. For i would never want poison or any harm to come to me, no matter what the payoff.
i typed that last post in perfect timing to go to lunch with church woman i told you about. ( i will call Mildred.) Before i could meet her a woman calls and asks me. If i will post a prayer request for her son-in-law Luke who is an alcoholic. i tell her God has him in His hands,and pray Peace for her. That i am headed there and will do as requested. i get outside and my church is doing a youth thing we will call it, in my neighborhood. i go up to them and say hey i’m from your church, just got prayer request will you pray as you work? The one girl says can we pray now? So all 4 of us hold hands praying for Luke, the family, and each other. i left that circle so full of the Joy of the Lord, speaking loudly of how Good God is.
i went to a sandwich shop to pick up our lunch and sang “God is Good, Good, Goood” the whole way down the pay here line. Till i paid the kid said “come back your energy is good. i said not mine the Lords.
Mildred and i found a picnic table, under a tree, at a park to sit and eat. Well i told that woman things. You would never tell someone you only spoke to at church on sunday and one other time. God was running the show. Being Glorified through our praises all the way. It was an amazing beautiful day. A fellow believer who did not judge or condemn me or my past. Who said they would pray for my victory and that my heart is seen by God and He is pleased with it. To be in fellowship with another person believer or not. To declare God and All His wonderful Creation. Talk of how Good He is. How redeeming He is. How much He Loves us. How He will Never let us Go. Does life get any better?
Maybe it is me who knows? God does. Well i never had God conversations with people like this before. There was a time i never noticed His Wonderful Creation. So to be Blessed to even know Him, share what i know/experience, is more than i can ask for. Let alone to have fellow people to Rejoice with. Hello. God is Good.
