Good thursday to you all; hope its been eventful.
For me, after two classes..I spent most of the day with ME, Myself, and God.:)
I was sitting at Barnesnoble drinking a frozen cara-vanilla latte’, in the middle of my daily procrastinating time from Bio.
And thought I would share some interesting, and unusually off the wall thoughts.
As you know, if you have followed the blog, there have been several occassions where God has asked me to STEP OUT.
And yet it continues..
I had another dream that Beth Moore was in last night; I will probably meet that woman one day and be like, ” Oh, hey Beth, what up?” because in my dream it is as if I have known her forever.
But it will show you that maybe God was sending a message. Read on siesta.
I am in Texas somewhere; Beth and I are walking on some grainy-dirt road,
she tells me, ” I want to show you someplace, would that be alright?”
I answered, ” Sure, let me just grab my smokes, be right back.”
She informs me, ” I’ll just smack that thing out of your mouth, girl.”
So of course, I give her the whole deal I tell everyone about why it is I smoke, clear and simple, it calms my ADHD. It really does!
She shakes her head as I go up to the truck(and I don’t own a truck), and take out the menthol kind.
I show them to her saying, ” I think I will need the strongest ones around you today.” in my lovely sarcasm. She doesn’t laugh.
We walk up the road to this little wooden house, it looked to be a small diner out in the middle of nowhere.
” This place is real nice, with real nice people.” she says as we walk up the steps.
We are greeted by a waiter that seats us. However, she doesn’t sit, I do in a booth and she stands and all these people with deformities greet her and she smiles and hugs them one by one.
I just stare, and the waiter asks me if I will have anything. I answer no.
Just then a little girl, with one leg jumps on my table, and hugs me.
It startles me. I then wake up to see my cat Boo standing on my chest.
I didn’t finish the dream, but it was pretty clear what God was showing me, don’t you think?
Okay, now I have to add that I couldn’t resist from buying a book before I left, I just wasn’t strong enough to fight off the temptation lol.
I bought the book, ” Sister Freaks” by Rebecca St. James, and other authors.
Talk about God leading me to having a true servan heart..this book was alone and it was a bargain book!
The church is going to have a Thanksgiving feast for those less fortunate, and I have really had it laying on my heart to help out; and even though it will anger my family for not being there that day, I just know God will be pleased.
Its about Him anyway.
Siesta, I don’t know if any of this speaks to you, but serving is a rough area in the body of Christ, almost as tough as getting people to give financially, but we are called to do it.
Shine on ladies, let’s shine for Jesus.
And to add: I have been reading the chapters in the book, and I think for the next few weeks, it will focus on each girl in history, some we know some we don’t, but why not we all see what a true servant is like?
I guess I can make it into a bible study; that we can do together? What do you think?
After all, aren’t we all siesta freaks?:-)
